Marvel-ous Monday: "Five to One, Deathlok...One In Five..." by Rich Buckler

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Here we are with another Deathlok masterpiece--this one has creator Rich Buckler unleashed, baby, doing plot, pencils, script, and inks! No one did comics like Buckler! Everything in Deathlok was so fresh and daring--studded with cinematic storytelling and bone crushing action...oh, and a page with TWENTY-ONE PANELS! All this angst, adventure, drama, and sci-fi crammed into one story--they just don't make 'em like this any more! From Astonishing Tales #28 (November 1975), here's "Five to One, Deathlok...One In Five..."


  1. Another brilliant installment of Deathlok. I loved the 21 panel page. Actually, there were all kinds of innovative panel arrangements this issue.

  2. Man you really like deathlock to me he always seemed like a poor mans rouge trooper.

    1. Rogue Trooper wasn't created until 1981, ya know. ;D

  3. Definitely Rich Buckler at his most creative. Good choice.
