    Looks like a whack version of the A-team.

    More than you know. They also drove around in a black van.

    Although again the PACK came first.

    The template for these hyper-macho quar-quintet of adventure characters however goes further back...

    A-Team - https://i.imgur.com/hQ7xfxw.jpg

    Kirby was heavily influenced by Doc Savage's Fab Five, which were synthesized in the Challengers.
    Which were then re-purposed into the Fantastic Four.
    The Wolf PACK drew from the similar template.
    As did A-Team also somewhat a borrowed throwback to the Doc Savage templates.




    And LOL sorry for the thread derail.

    Finding a Non-Marvel Herb Trimpe cover was a little harder that I thought it would be, found about 10 out of 1500ish. Herb made his MARVEL !

    Truth is Mattel & Kirby's designed Wolf P.A.C.K came first, although I wouldn't be surprised if Village People were in fact somewhat inspired by these exaggerated "Macho Men " There is more than enough subtext LOL. ; )

    At the time you probably couldn't open a comic without seeing the ad-


    Although he (and the line) were influenced by his won...
    I vaguely remember owning Big Jim, one of the karate chop action guys (you'd press a button on his back and his arm would chop down) and Zorak with the switching faces. I must have been around 6 years old.

    When it comes to Christopher Priest/James Owsley, I think more of his Marvel work.

    Comicvine is fine (I think it was an issue with the specific wifi network I was on); it's comicbookdb.com that's unusable from inside the EU.

    Lots of great covers this week, thanks to all for participating. It was hard to choose, but in the end the combo of Space Ghost and Sienkewicz won out so my vote goes to Nschornhorst this week.

    Lots of great choices, including a cover I almost went with (John Byrne's Man of Steel), but I'm voting for Shalla Bal and that incredible John Severin cover!
