So I just finished it. Color me extremely intrigued, I'll have to check out the other Solar stuff soon.

Funny part is when Dark Horse started reprinting GK Solar #1-31 I contacted them and told them that I owned GK Solar #32- an unpublished comic... I have the blue line copy which is the only copy in existence. They emailed me back a year and a half later and I had buried it somewhere in the house by then.


Wait... how do you have an unpublished comic?


Bought it almost a decade ago from Southebys. It's a blue line copy... it's what the printer sends to the publisher for final approval before they print the comic book.

Yeah... "Second Death", which is Solar #1-4, is the second half of the story.

Maybe since the comic didn't go into publishing, it just got sold at a garage sale or something?

Don't exactly remember. May have been an estate sale from a Gold Key artist... I also picked up a 1940 Uncle Sam ink piece that's hanging in my living room- classic Americana.

I got divorced in 2004 and moved to another state. I have been bringing my comic book collection up here to PA 2-3 long boxes at a time for the past several years whenever I went to NY, at this point I have about 75% of my books.

ANYWHO... I found three copies of Alpha and Omega- the original softcover that includes the giant poster that is the last panel. They go on eBay for $8-12 each. I got one to give someone here- someone who would most appreciate it gratis.

I hope all you dedicated fans real A&O and are all blown away by that book- I want that one person that appreciates it the best.

Of course I can always give it to DoomsdayClock and let him decide. But if you're into classic comic book storytelling then I am about to take you on a short journey.

Does this journey involve a magic carpet ride? Cuz I'd totally go on it.

No magic carpet ride but it involeves A&O softcover plus Solar #1-4 "Second Death".

Who is the most worthy person to bestow this to?

Not me. I'm a horrible human being.
