Almost Gone! Collects #1-13, 1975-76. Highly Recommended. In 1975, DC brought back the anthology try-out concept, so successful with Showcase. These never-before-reprinted 1970s stories included new concepts from writer/artist Jack Kirby (Atlas, Dingbats, Manhunter) plus stories illustrated by Steve Ditko, Mike Grell (Warlord) and Walter Simonson (Doctor Fate). It also brought back beloved characters like Metamorpho, the Creeper, Starman and the New Gods. And here are “off the wall” concepts like the Green Team (crime fighting teenage millionaires!) and the gritty Lady Cop, Code-Name Assassin and The Outsiders. DC Comics, 2020. Out of print.

Description

In 1975, DC brought back the anthology try-out concept, so successful with Showcase. These never-before-reprinted 1970s stories included new concepts from writer/artist Jack Kirby (Atlas, Dingbats, Manhunter) plus stories illustrated by Steve Ditko, Mike Grell (Warlord) and Walter Simonson (Doctor Fate). It also brought back beloved characters like Metamorpho, the Creeper, Starman and the New Gods. And here are “off the wall” concepts like the Green Team (crime fighting teenage millionaires!) and the gritty Lady Cop, Code-Name Assassin and The Outsiders.

New 2019 Introduction by writer Gerry Conway, who wrote three of these issues…titled “If At First You Don’t Succeed,” on how this offbeat series not only presented new concepts, but also attempted, in some cases successfully, to bring back a number of vintage heroes.

Lady Cop is nicely written by Robert Knaigher and drawn by John Rosenberger; Manhunter and Atlas offer a rare collaboration between Jack Kirby and fan-turned-pro artist, D. Bruce Berry; Metamorpho brings back his original artist, the talented Ramona Fradon; The Green Team and The Outsiders are written by Jack Kirby’s old collaborator, Joe Simon and drawn by DC war artist and Creepy and Eerie creator Jerry Grandenetti; The Creeper features fabled Spectre writer Michael Fleisher.
