Bring on the Back-ups Week! Amazed by Aparo: "Medicine Man!" by O'Neil and Aparo

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! It's been way too long since we Wander-ed into the back-pages of Charlton's Cheyenne Kid to dig on Denny O'Neil (writing as Sergius O'Shaugnessey) and Jim Aparo's western/sci-fi romp Wander! "Medicine Man!" is Wander's second appearance (you can read the first one here), appearing in Cheyenne Kid #67 (April 1968). Slap leather and grab your laser gun, kemosabe!


  1. Excellent choice, Groove! I'm looking forward to the other stories you present this week. Thanks (as always) for perking up my mornings.

  2. Outstanding! This was my first chapter of the Wander saga, having somehow missed the first one. There is more imagination and wit in these few pages than in six months of most modern comics. Great stuff by both O'Neil and Aparo, two talents still bristling with the stuff!

    Rip Off

  3. "Super scientific gizmo!"

    THAT's how you explain gadgets, not with bogus mis-interpreted quantum theory. Writers take note.
