DEATHLOK THE DEMOLISHER COVER GALLERY - PART ONE...
"The MARVEL AGE Of COMICS, PHASE TWO!" said
the cover of ASTONISHING TALES #25, which marked the
debut of DEATHLOK The DEMOLISHER. Created by RICH
BUCKLER, it was probably inspired in part by TV's SIX MILLION
DOLLAR MAN - but only in the sense that Deathlok was a cyborg,
as was STEVE AUSTIN. That was the only similarity, although, in
1977, 2000 A.D. featured a strip called M.A.C.H. 1, which, inev-
itably I suppose, combined elements of Austin and Deathlok for
a British readership. However, that's a story for another time -
let's now enjoy some cataclysmic covers from the '70s.
And don't forget to come back for part two.
