Super Weird Heroes v2.3: Who Will Be The Man of Tomorrow?
The Hip Knox story that Craig Yoe has chosen for inclusion in his Super Weird Heroes Volume 2 is one of my favorite weird tales in this book, but not just for the story itself.  Oh, the story is certainly quite weird, and the character is very weird indeed, but the thing that makes this[...]
