Another pleasant surprise was seeing Steve Gerber’s Destroyer Duck legal defense issue displayed It doesn’t seem like Eclipse Comics lasted long but this was one of two titles I collected from that company Later in the early days of Compuserve a dial in information service I had the pleasure of emailing Gerber about a sermon I preached called “The Gospel According to Howard the Duck” He was intrigued by my approach even though as I had pointed out at the beginning the character of Howard had a certain existential weltschmerz which I wasn’t advocating He was also gracious about the Lucas movie which I still don’t think was that bad for its time—I’d see it again before I’d watch the recent Green Lantern movie againBut what really shocked me was that The Rocketeer was missing from this line up The title was interesting enough to inspire its own film and video game as well as recent stories by Mark Waid So I’d think it would be significant And since lesser titles by Jack Kirby are represented why not at least acknowledge the Jack Kirby Comics series of the mid ‘80s? And the answers are 1 Would you believe Superman? Still appearing in Action Comics 2 Will Eisner’s iconic “The Spirit” 3 William Moulton Marston the psychologist who created the DISC profile and the lie detector created Wonder Woman 4 I always think of the Joker’s origin when I think of acid or chemical vats but the answer to this uestion was Plastic Man 5 Magician and prolific pulp writer Walter Gibson created The Shadow but the answer to this trivia uestion is Bill Barnes America’s Air AceAll in all this was an extremely enjoyable experience I’ll probably read it again after I read some of the oldy moldy ones I can read online Today I have an even better chance of getting to read some of these 1000 Comic Books You Must Read than I would have in 2009 when it came out
