Indie Cover Spotlight: The Men in Black #1

Where does a billion dollar film franchise begin? Right here, with this obscure black-and-white indie comic:

MeninBlack1

Created by Lowell Cunningham and Sandy Carruthers, and published by Aircel (by then an imprint of Malibu) in 1990. I’ve actually never read the comic, but I’m sure there’s not a whole lot in it that resembles the mega-successful film adaptation that made it a household name.
