... and who the hell was Typhon?

Evan Lewis said...

Good question. And what the heck is a "giant comicscope"?

I think "Typhon" has been optioned by the SyFy Channel - an apocalyptic tale of a typhoon borne typhus epidemic.

I don't recognize that "EP" (or is it "FP"?)in the shield logo. Who published these gems?

Art Scott

Evan Lewis said...

The publisher is the Fox Features Syndicate. I think the shield is actually the outline of a fox head, and the FP stands for Feature Publications

Go to this link http://thenostalgialeague.com/galleries/thor/thor.html

and look under the heading "The Comic Book Thor" to get an idea what the pre-Marvel character was like.

Thanks David! Except for the bare feet, he doesn't look a whole lot different from the Marvel guy.
