This week, I’ll take a small detour from featuring comics that I generally like, and instead feature some rather…um, weak offerings from the indie publishers of yore. The unifying theme will be lame books trying to cash in on the success of 1984’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, which was a genuine black-and-white indie comic smash hit. These books? Not so much.
Yes, that’s right, a book with the unwieldy name of Bushido Blade of Zatoichi Walrus. The cover is by Chuck Wojtkiewicz, who went on to do some books at DC in the 90s, if I remember correctly. Inks provided by veteran inker Rich Buckler. This book was published in 1986 by Solson Publications, which was basically one giant crap factory of forgettable comics.
