Admiring Adams: "The Humbug Run"

Although this DC classic was released in November, 1970, Hot Wheels #6's "The Humbug Run" is definitely a cool-car-Christmas-themed comic. Buckle up and get ready for a far-out ride courtesy Len Wein, Neal Adams, and Dick Giordano, Groove-ophiles!


  1. MY all time favorite Adams story (and there were so may) were the three issues he did of the Avengers with Tom Palmer on inks. I think they were issues 96 to 98 and they were followed by a couple issues drawn by Barry Smith! Damn, those were the days. If you ever get those scanned I would love it. I can see images of Antman shrinking down and going inside the Vision and doing a sort of Fantastic Voyage job on him. As always great stuff and Merry Christmas man. I was thinking of printing out that red Nails stuff you sent me and making it into a little book.

  2. Glad you enjoyed the post, Bill! The Antman-exploring-the Vision ish was Avengers #93, and t'was indeed a milestone. I think that segment is in most fans' all-time top 10 cool moments. Adams rules!
