DON'T GIVE UP THE DAY JOB - EAGLE'S 'LOST' DEATH WISH SCRIPT - PART ONE...



Below is the script for a proposed DEATH WISH adventure
for EAGLE comic back around the mid-'80s.  I was lettering the strip
at the time and decided to try my hand at writing a tale and submitting it
to editor DAVE HUNT.  I can't recall now if I ever did, although I have
a vague notion that I might've done and received a knock-back.

The plot is clearly ripped off from inspired by the FF's very first
encounter with The SKRULLS and THOR's experience with aliens
known as XARTANS, both species being able to change their appear-
ance to anything they want.  I thought it'd make a nice change of pace
for BLAKE EDMONDS to go down the MARVEL route for at
least a couple of episodes, and this was the result.

Just as well I wasn't short of lettering work at the time, eh?  Give it
a read and, like it or loathe it, I'll inflict part two on you next time.
(Okay, who's the wiseguy who said it shoulda stayed lost?)
