Atari Force #1

Atari Force #1, January 1984

A chance to gaze in awe at an example of the fine work of one of comics’ most underrated talents: Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez. Why that man isn’t a superstar, I’ll never know.

He’s rarely drawn long runs of comics but he was on Atari Force for a whole year, and it’s a book to savour. The title might not sound promising, and it’s true it was based around early computer gaming (kids — ask yer Dad), but it turned out to be pretty darn spectacular.

Alarmingly, last year, I was able to re-buy a complete run for just £2.00. And, frankly, that’s criminal..!
