POWER COMICS

TITLE: VIKON [MAGAZINE] (1982)
PUBLISHER: PLATINUM CANYON PUBLICATION
ART BY: KEN LANDGRAF, CHARACTER DESIGN: KEVIN JOHNSON, LYRICS BY: MIKE APPEL

Drawn with great authority by ’80s independent titan Ken Landgraf (New York City Outlaws, Starfighters), this intergalactic, dimension crossing tale is a full-blown heavy metal concept comic-opera with mostly all its dialog presented in lyric form. One should have the melodies of Manowar or the mighty Candlemass in mind while reading for maximum results. By order of King Kronos, four elite commandos sheathed in leather and spikes must seize the xenon arc death-ray and a stolen crystal-powered chariot from the Dark Prince Belial. -EH
