Marvel-ous Monday: "Little Triggers!" by Grant, Trimpe, and Mitchell

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! You asked! You begged! You pleaded! You even threatened! But here it is, anyway: part one of the wrap up of the Omega the Unknown saga from Defenders #76 (July 1979)! The (Rich Buckler/Al Milgrom) cover says it all: "At last...the Omega Saga!" Now, it's doubtful that this is the wrap-up that anyone expected, but Steven Grant, Herb Trimpe, and Steve Mitchell did what they could with what they had! Keep in mind, this particular ish is more set-up for the action and revelations to come next ish.

First, here's the final page of Defenders #75 that led into ish 76 by Ed Hannigan, Trimpe, and Mike Esposito...

--and away we go!

  1. I really like the Omega series. If it had gotten a real direction & had developed.I'm pretty sure what really happened was DC. Has threaten to sue due to he looked way too much and his origin was way too much like Superman's. Plus James Michael Starling was a bit too much like Billy Batson too. I was so disappointed by this just slapped together crappy ending for both Omega & James Michael. I'm a huge Herb Trimpe fan too. But this looked totally subpar on every level.
