PART TWO OF DON'T GIVE UP THE DAY JOB - EAGLE'S 'LOST' DEATH WISH SCRIPT...
You begged, you pleaded, you demanded - but here it is anyway,
despite your wishes. The second part of my proposed DEATH WISH
script for the adventure strip appearing in EAGLE comic back around
1986 or so. One of the reasons I decided to try turning out a tale or two
at the time was the fact that I had just recently bought myself a portable
typewriter - mainly for the purpose of producing personal correspon-
dence - but it was lying neglected so I thought I'd put it to use.
This script was the result, and having gathered dust in a drawer for
decades, I thought the time had finally come to show just what comics
readers were spared all those many years ago. Okay, so it was hardly
original, but I believe the humorous elements I injected into the tale
gave it something different to the stories it was derived from.
Anyway, you be the judge. Could I have been the next STAN
LEE (which would've been apt, as I was nicking his plot), or was
any ability clearly overshadowed by my vaulting ambition? Say
what you think in the comments section - but be kind, eh?
