VANGUARD #1-3 BRENDAN McCARTHY
$20.00 for three issue set
THE HYPE-UP: Godfather of the British Invasion. The man who taught Jamie "Tank Girl" Hewlett everything he knows. Psych-comics guru Brendan McCarthy's first published work in America. He did three installments of his Freakwave story (he's convinced the movie Waterworld ripped him off) for Vanguard published by Pacific Comics. Each issue has a 8 or 10 page mindblower of a McCarthy story inside (not to mention early Steve Rude as well). See how it all started. Great colors of course and that unique McCarthy framing style. Trippy!
