Letters Column: TCR Mailboat

Synopsis:
Comics news and cover repros of upcoming books. The TCR Mailboat boasts a letter from JOHN BYRNE discussing the fun of creating comics.

This issue also features the return of JACOB MORAINE's "Comic Strip Circus" column. The issue is rounded out with media reviews, the 1979 Fall TV schedule, and a review of Marvel's MICRONAUTS series.

JIM ENGEL and CHUCK FIALA contribute a Fandom Confidential fumetti as well as "Dick Duck, Duck Dick" and "Bullet Crow" comic strips. Spot illos come from EDDIE EDDINGS and LARRY HOUSTON. A highlight is the full-color, half-page "Hembeck Salutes... The T.H.U.N.D.E.R Agents" illustration by FRED HEMBECK.

An especially lengthy Menomonee Falls Gazette section reprints the following comic strips:
BATMAN: Daily strips from Oct. 25-Nov. 2, 1946 (minus the missing Oct.28 strip). (This concluded the BATMAN sttip.)
MODESTY BLAISE: Strips 2637-2644
SUPERMAN: Daily strips December 12-20, 1944
BEN CASEY by NEAL ADAMS: Daily strips July 15-23, 1966
STAR HAWKS by RON GOULART and GIL KANE: Strips of April 17-May 14, 1978 (a whopping 14 pages worth of this strip!)

Notes:
The front cover was created for Marvel's never-published CAPTAIN MARVEL #63 by PAT BRODERICK and TOM PALMER.
The back cover is a presentation drawing of ROM: SPACEKNIGHT created by JOHN ROMITA JR. and MARIE SEVERIN.
