TWELFTH & FINAL PART OF THE INCREDIBLE TRI-MAN...
Well, it's the end of the road for TRI-MAN, SMASH! fans, as we
present the final two episodes of his weekly adventures. After imitating
the SPIDER-MAN formula for most of its run, the strip now seemed to
be borrowing an element from SUPERMAN, with TODD BLACKER
determined to prove JOHNNY SMALL's superhero alias, much like
LOIS LANE trying to expose CLARK KENT's secret identity.
However, it never happened! Tri-Man was only seen once more in
the pages of the Smash! Annual for 1971 (on sale in 1970), in a RON
TURNER-illustrated tale which, in all likelihood, had been completed
before the superhero's final weekly story recounting Todd's discovery
of JS's secret. You can read that full-colour Annual adventure by
