RAMPAGING REPOST: DON'T GIVE UP THE DAY JOB - EAGLE'S 'LOST' DEATH WISH STRIP - PART TWO...
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 correspondence - 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?
