Black and White Wednesday: "The Messiah in the Saddle 'Resolution'" by Howard Chaykin

Check it out, Groove-ophiles! Howard Chaykin wrote and illustrated "The Messiah in the Saddle 'Resolution'" which appeared in the hard-to-find b&w Marvel Super-Action #1 (and only, October 1975). It's all Dominic Fortune, all Howard Chaykin, and all right here for you! Who loves ya, baby?

  1. Chaykin really just seemed to give the one character all those different names and costumes throughout the seventies.
    No complaints. I loved them all.
    I wonder if he ever conceived a story in which they all appeared?
    And it's a shame American Flagg falls outside the groovy era.

    1. .Scorpion (Atlas/Seaboard) turned into Dominic Fortune (Marvel) and then Cody Starbuck (Star Reach, Heavy Metal) or was that the other way around.Then there was+ Monark Starstalker (Marvel) all the same characters and Rueben Flagg. Chaykin really just seemed to give the one character all those different names and costumes throughout the 1970's and 1980's.I hated this issue because it's dum bonehead one,where the woman introduces the idea that Dominic Fortune-whose could have derived a name like Outer Limits composer Dominic Fortere was actually David Fortunov-a name that can't be anywhere outside of Marvel Comics.Chaykin never finished and always fracked up his comics with stupid sexist crap

  3. Loved this character & Chaykin's beautiful art work. His Star Wars adaptation was totally far out too!

  4. Aaahhh, yes...Scorpion (Atlas/Seaboard) + Dominic Fortune (Marvel) and then Cody Starbuck (Star Reach, Heavy Metal) + Monark Starstalker (Marvel) and then, of course, there's Reuben Youngblood (Warren), all leading up to Reuben/American Flagg, ALL of it great stuff. - Jeff Clem
