Amazing Comics Premieres

 AMCP   (Amazing, 1987)

™ and © Amazing Publishing Company

Originally designed to showcase some of Amazing’s newest talent and stories, black-and-white Amazing Comics Premiers wanted to pilot new features, premiere new series, and provide a format for one-shot wonders. They learned that even older companies have had trouble keeping such variety titles going and the magazine only lasted five issues.

Issue one introduced readers to Ninja Bots-combining the eighties ninja craze with eighties robotic trends. Issue two brought us “The Untouchabots,” melding the world of Elliot Ness with the robot-craze. Issue three contained two stories-”Shadowalker” and “The Ghostchasers” while issue four stared Sam Kieth’s Agatha Moore in “The Great American Murder Bar.” The series ended with Stargrazers.
