Jan. 4, 1933: The oceanliner L’Atlantique, en route to Cherbourg from Bordeaux for “annual overhauling,” caught fire near the Normandy coast, near its destination,  and “rumors of sabotage were current.” The fire had spread so swiftly, starting from somewhere in the first-class quarters, that its cause couldn’t be determined, and 17 of its 238 crew were presumed dead (and, later, five stowaways were found dead). A literal tug-o’-war ensued, as ships from France, Germany and the Netherlands vied to tow it back and receive compensation. A French and Dutch ship reached the beleaguered vessel first, and “the tugs started pulling in opposite directions, getting nowhere and endangering the L’Atlantique even further.” Order was restored by a nearby warship.

The Skull Killer written by Brendan Faukner (the only comic credit to his name), drawn by Gary Terry (like a Michael T. Gilbert comic inked with a brush), colored by Si & Seth Deitch (Kim’s siblings), 1975. The characters therein are preexisting pulp personas, at least the main ones are.

It’s a black and white comic, the color pages being a couple of rare treats saved for the title pages and the money shot… except the odd example of arbitrary spot coloring (last image). 

The creators could probably only afford a few colors while using a press that could only sustain that amount of coloring (that’s how that works, I bet), yet they just had to make this happen. The world needed to see this comic at any cost. It’s a situation made up of the same things that made zine trading possible… y’know, the comic trading circuit from the 60s and 70s. Whether that was the case here or not, it reminds me of a bunch of kids doing it just because they can.

"and i’m carrying this rage like a blood-filled egg and there’s a thin line between the inside and the outside a thin line between thought and action and that line is simply made up of blood and muscle and bone and as each t-cell disappears from my body it’s replaced by ten pounds of pressure ten pounds of rage and i focus that rage into nonviolent resistance but that focus is starting to slip my hands are beginning to move independently and the egg is starting to crack and america seems to accept murder as self-defense against those who would murder you and it’s been murder on a daily basis for ten count them ten long years and we’re expected to pay taxes to support this public and social murder and we’re expected to quietly and politely make house in this windstorm of murder but i say there’s certain politicians that better get more complex security alarms and there’s religious leaders and health care officials that had better get bigger fucking dogs and higher fucking fences and queer bashers better start doing their work from inside howitzer tanks because the thin line between the inside and the outside is beginning to erode and at the moment i’m a three hundred seventy foot tall eleven hundred thousand pound man inside this six foot frame and all I can feel is the pressure and all I can feel is the pressure
