CRIVENS! THE INCREDIBLE TRI-MAN - PART FIVE...



Things are still hotting up for our hero in these two titanic episodes,
SMASH! fans.  Most of you will recognize certain elements borrowed
from MARVEL's SPIDER-MAN, but if you're going to copy a teenage
superhero, you might as well imitate an'A' lister.  Is anyone else looking
at these strips apart from JP, McScottyTC, and me?  If so, leave a
comment to reassure me that I'm not wasting everybody's time.

I think I can predict what he'll do! I reckon he'll zoom into the room and whisk his dad away, before he gets a chance to recognise him?
Anyway, there are loads of us following this strip back here at Pitt Towers, so, no, you're not wasting your time!

Yes, we're all enjoying it too!
( Signed, ALL of John's family and friends!! )

I dunno what happens, JP - I don't read them before posting, I wait until they're up and read them along with the rest of you. Honest. And hello to all of JP's family and friends.

Hahaha I just noticed the Fu Manchu clone. Sorry it made me laugh when I saw it. He's no worse than the Mandarin in Iron Man I suppose. I guess I should be glad he isn't Egg Fu but I sort of liked Eggy he made me laugh.

Glad you've got a sense of humour, Phil. For my part, I don't view him as any more of a racial (or even racist) stereotype than when they use weasely, shifty-looking white guys to denote east-end criminals. It's just a visual shorthand in my view. The 'Fu Manchu clone' certainly isn't meant to suggest that all Asians are like him.

Enjoying this Tri-man series,pity Britain couldn't have done their own hero comic.
Imagine having all the old greats like Archie,Steel Claw,Kelly's Eye,Dollmann,Janus Stark,Rubberman,Spider,Adam Eterno and others in one mag.

I'd have a superhero team called The Fabulous Five, CH, featuring Tri-Man, Rubberman, Adam Eterno, The Steel Claw, and Robot Archie. Done in the Marvel style of course. I had this idea even before they turned up in Zenith.

I'm with Clive and yourself on this, I have actually been revisiting old posts of the British greats, Adam, Janus, and Cursitor Doom, etc. A few more to revisit....

Kid said...

And you'll be glad to know that there's more to come, JP. (In time.)
