Eric Bradbury's return to Black Max.
Hmmm, that's interesting. I'd always thought that Mr Bradbury did the initial design work for the Black max strip and the very first episode but then passed on the duties to Mr Font. So its a bit of a suprise to find, tucked away in the Thunder annual of 1973, a text story featuring the original artist. Its certainly not out-takes from before the strip ran as the story has Von Klorr and Wilson in the midst of their battles. Nice to see - but must say, prefer Font's monstrous takes on the Giant Bat's over Bradbury's far more realistic one's.
