OMEGA THE UNKNOWN - WHO KNEW...?
OMEGA The UNKNOWN it was called, which was an apt title considering that nobody seemed to know what it was about. There was certainly a nod to elements of CAPTAIN MARVEL in the mix, but the mag failed to capture my interest and I bailed out not too far into the run. I should have held on because it lasted only ten issues before being cancelled due to poor sales (so it seems I wasn't the only one to jump from a plummeting 'plane).
However, it was good to see veteran artist JIM MOONEY as the main man on a regular monthly mag again - even if it was only for a short time. This superhero saga sings of the '70s to me in a way that's hard to explain, but if you were around back in the day and bought the comic, then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. If not, you'll just have to take my word for it and settle for the pulsating piccies presented in this palpitating post. Ain't you lucky?!
If I ever manage to track down the remaining five issues, you can expect part two to finish things up. If not, then you're on your own, Charlie.
