Black and White Wednesday: "The Rubber Ball Project" by Cuti and Continuity Associates

What it is, Groove-ophiles! Today we're going back in time to visit with our fave made-for-TV superhero, Steve Austin--The Six Million Dollar Man! "The Rubber Ball Project" comes from Charlton's b&w magazine version of The Six Million Dollar Man ish 2 (July 1976). The story is by our fave Charlton wordsmith Nick Cuti with art by Neal Adams, Dick Giordano, and the boys at Continuity Associates. Grab a glass of lemonade, find a shady spot, and hang on, baby!


  1. Hopefully, a really savvy reader out there can help us figure out which specific Crusty Bunkers did this job. I'd try, but for some reason, my computer at work is not allowing me to enlargen the scans to get a good look. Definitely some Giordano, maybe some Gray Morrow? Dennis Francis? Joe Brozowski (JJ Birch)? HELP! - Jeff Clem

  2. It looks like the pencils for the second part of the story were handed off to Jack Sparling, who'd take over the title with the next issue--although Continuity Associates did get the pages back to ink.

    Like Jeff, I see some Dick Giordano inking here, but can't guess at anybody else. If Neal Adams did any work on the story it doesn't show!

    And one of those Crusty Bunkers whose style I can't tell would be Steve Austin.
