My first exposure to Bass Reeves was on the TV show Timeless, where it is suggested that he is the inspiration for the Lone Ranger. His story is very similar to the Lone Ranger in that he is a stand alone lawman riding a white horse who answers the call to justice against insurmountable odds. Bass Reeves is the stuff of legends
Red Rooster is a new Family Friendly Comic about a 1930's Super Hero... But how does it stand up?
In reading Unsolicited Justice, you get that 90's vibe. The hero of the story, the "Port City Protector" known as Alderman, is a self appointed judge, jury, and executioner to criminals who evade punishment. He brings these criminals to the justice they think they have escaped.
For this week's Extra Tuesday, Captain Nostalgia returns with a devilish Captain's Comic Log. This month he's taking a look at Marvel's 1984, "The Blue Devil." You may be familiar with this character from his appearance in DC Universe' Swamp Thing, but was his comic worth reading?
