Sci Fi Week! Makin' Chaykin: "Home World" by O'Neil (?) and Chaykin

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Today we're checking out the third and final Groovy Age installment of Howard Chaykin's far-out Ironwolf strip (read the other installments here and here), "Home World", from Weird Worlds #10 (July 1974)!

There are no credits on this story, except for Chaykin's signature on the splash page, so I'm assuming editor Denny O'Neil (who scripted the first two Ironwolf tales) scripted "Home World" as well. Anyone have any solid info on the actual authorship?


  1. I always loved "Chum-O." Never did catch on though. :)

    Even though I hated to see the John Carter, Pellucidar stories go by the wayside, I actually enjoyed the Iron Wolf series and wished it had lasted longer.

  2. Groovy! Hey some pros got birthdays in Oct-on. Maybe you could post them birthday wishes with some of their stories in the next few months. I know Jerry Ordway & Roy Thomas birthdays are in Nov. Joe Sinnott's Oct 21st, etc.

  3. How about sharing the Ironwolf-related backup features that ran in these issues? I remember they were pretty cool too.
