Marks and Marksman

I RECENTLY bought 100 comics cheap off eBay and gave most of them away to BP readers. But there were 27 that caught my eye, so I decided to keep them. One of the titles was The Marksman #2 (Hero Comics, 1987). Now, the main feature is a pretty ordinary superhero yarn, but it was the back-up story (writer: Denis Mallonee/pencis: Walt Davis/inks: Dell Barras) that made up my mind to keep this comic.

Marksman supporting character Rose flies solo in "The Return Of Doctor Death" where a Haitian witch doctor controls a masked grappler as he fights in the squared circle. It's actually a fairly pedestrian eight-page tale, but the wrestling side of it (and its relaxed attitude towards the real vs fake debate - together with the way it touches on the drugs-in-wrestling issue) isn't too shabby. All in all, I give this comic a C+ (on the wrestling comic scale).
