Hot Ní Cold Heroes

Throughout their long runs, Charlton and ACG were rarely bywords for quality comics. For every Ogden Whitney or Steve Ditko strip they published half a dozen more by hacks, and plenty are reprinted here by the company who bought the rights to all their old strips. Youíll discover obscure super-heroes like Crash Kid, the not-quite-polished (although enthusiastic) work of John Byrne and predictable horror. The material would have nostalgic charm if found in its original form down the back of a discarded sofa after twenty years, but reprints canít evoke memories as strongly, and a $2.50 cover price for largely substandard material negates all charm.
