Children Of The Flaming Wheel

This is the companion piece to In The Days of the Mob that I posted about the other day. Shame about the bloody great big 'SALE 5p PRICE' stamp on the cover, but it's what's inside that counts and it's classic Kirby to the core! My favourite strip is Children Of The Flaming Wheel, listed as a Foto-Feature in the contents but I would describe it more as Fumetti, a genre of comics with photographs rather than drawings. Maaan, this is trippy stuff! Apparently Kirby worked with Mark Evanier on the story and Steve Sherman who took the actual photos. As for the cover, it's interesting to note that Neal Adams designed it and there's an original rough by him (left, click for large) for sale online. It's only... $1500.00!!! and you'll find it here. Just 'add to basket'!
