Decent Comics: "Multi-Man Rules the World" by Skeates, Sherman, and Abel

What it is, Groove-ophiles! Today we're gonna dig on Super-Team Family #10 (January 1977) featuring the Challengers of the Unknown in "Multi-Man Rules the World!" The team of Steve Skeates, James Sherman, and Jack Abel were clicking right along on all cylinders, bringing back some classic characters from the Challs' past, most notably the villainous Multi-Man. Sales must have been pretty good, because if you look at the blurb in the final panel of the final page you'll see that the Challs would be graduating to their own mag two months later. Strangely enough, even though this particular story would be continued in the revived mag, not a single one of the men who brought the Challengers back so successfully would be assigned to the new mag...

  1. Jim Sherman was one of those talents apparently burned by the comic book industry. It's a shame because he turned out great work in the 70s and 80s and it would have been nice to have had his artwork for many years to come. I believe he did the first 2 issues of Red Circle's The Fly. Have you ever run those?
