    Boys, GET OUT OF MY HEAD!!!!

    First Crank drops THE LAST STARFIGHTER reference . I love that movie. Robert Preston doing his Music Man con artist persona, and he has an alien Rubber mask moment ( or maybe it’s a stunt double ) , and a funny leading kid who has a “what the fuck” look on his face that keeps this film from dripping with sachrin.

    The film is actually pretty entertaining, given its very early CGI effects. I think it’s a decent 80’s teen comedy, with fun cheesy sci-fi action. Compared to bad live action Satuday stuff like JASON OF STAR COMMAND, this is CITIZEN KANE.

    Then, the Mack Bolan Excecutioner comic books. I must get them. I’ll be checking Mile High later.

    I have a couple Mack Bolan novels, and a short story collection of great pulp detective stoires, inculding one of the few Mack Bolan Short stories.

    The backstory of who published these types of novels is interesting. It’s the romance companies like Harlequin, that wanted to serve male readers too.

    Tell me the Punisher isn’t based on this dude?
    When, or if, I do track Gerry Conway down for an interview, I’ll have to ask that question (in a well thought out, delicate way). It’s too coincidental, both are waging one man wars against the Mob? Bolan was a little more sane then Castle.

    BTW THE PLOT is an amazing last performance from Eisner. Just a genius level production.
