Amazed by Aparo: "The Man from Sirius 5" by O'Neil and Aparo

Saddle up, Groove-ophiles! We're gonna Wander back to the Old West with Sergius (Denny O'Neil) O'Shaugnessey and our main man Jim Aparo to answer the burning question, "Can a traveling salesman from another world find happiness as a medicine show performer on such a crummy little planet as earth?" Can the answer be found in "The Man from Sirius 5" from Charlton's Cheyenne Kid #69 (August 1968)? Let's ankle on down and find out...


  1. Love these. I'd buy a reprint volume of these stories as quickly as I could get to the store. Outstanding stuff! Thanks for reminding the world of this awesomeness.

  2. Great to see another installment of "Wander." Is it possible that you could also post the first page? Thanks!

  3. Whoops! Fixed it. Ol' Groove's getting too poor to pay attention. Thanks for the head's up!
