    There s a lot to unpack with Sabre Slow Fade of an Endangered Species, one of the earliest modern graphic novels Densely written by Don McGregor and beautifully illustrated by Paul Gulacy it is an interesting read if a little uneven and slow moving in some places McGregor crams a lot of pop psychology into the story in an attempt to offset the violent fantasy setting and to infuse the novel with an air of maturity not generally found in American comics published in the 1970 s in fact, Sabre There s a lot to unpack with Sabre Slow Fade of an Endangered Species, one of the earliest modern graphic novels Densely written by Don McGregor and beautifully illustrated by Paul Gulacy it is an interesting read if a little uneven and slow moving in some places McGregor crams a lot of pop psychology into the story in an attempt to offset the violent fantasy setting and to infuse the novel with an air of maturity not generally found in American comics published in the 1970 s in fact, Sabre seems self consciously obsessed with declaring itself Not For Children To a degree it succeeds, but what stops the novel from gelling completely as a whole is its low page count, an unavoidable circumstance of the time it was produced The low count made necessary the clunky exposition and tiny panels crowded with word balloons that prevent the story from developing at a natural pace Still, Sabre is an important read for those with an interest in comics history First published in 1978 it is one of the earliest graphic novels sold in the developing comic book direct market, perhaps the first commercially successful one It was part of the same burst of creativity that brought us other works such as Star Reach, Wendy and Richard Pini s ElfQuest, Heavy Metal magazine, Dave Sim s Cerebus and a little later Epic Illustrated magazine among others

    Eclipse is in many ways the quintessential 80s American independent publisher And this book from 1978 was their very first This is considered one of the first original graphic novels and is written by the extremely literate Don McGregor who d go on to do Black Panther This is a post apocalyptic comic, kind of Shaft meets West World and Death Wish Race.It s a bit puerile for the first graphic novel emphasis on graphic and less on the novel by the often verbose McGregor Paul Gualacy al Eclipse is in many ways the quintessential 80s American independent publisher And this book from 1978 was their very first This is considered one of the first original graphic novels and is written by the extremely literate Don McGregor who d go on to do Black Panther This is a post apocalyptic comic, kind of Shaft meets West World and Death Wish Race.It s a bit puerile for the first graphic novel emphasis on graphic and less on the novel by the often verbose McGregor Paul Gualacy also shines here who I ve always had a respect for particularly his Slash Maraud book This isn t a perfect book, but it must have certainly made an impression with it s release It s kind of proto Heavy Metal.This line had Don McGregor, Paul Gulacy, Don Hembeck, Steve Gerber, Jack Kirby, Steve Engleheart, Marhsall Rogers, Frank Miller, Max Allan Collins, Mike Grell, Will Eisner, Mark Evanier, Steve Ditko, Doeg Moench, Star Reach Classics, Dave Sim, Chaykin, Starlin, Scott McCloud, Sergio Argones, Bruce Jones, Steve Moore, Steve Dillon, Dave Stevens, Siegel and Shuster, Roger McKenzie, Peter Milligan Brett Ewins Brendan McCarthy, Bernie Wrighston, Michael T Gilbert BC Boyle, Gene Coleman, Timothy Truman, John Bolton, Trina Robbins, Brian Bolland, Rick Geary, Steve Bisette, Frank Brunner, Alan Moore, Rick Veitch, Ralph Reese, Don Chin, Chuck Dixon, Richard Corben, Alex Toth, Wally Wood, David Lloyd, Steve Parkhouse, Chris Ware, Joe Kubert, John K Snyder III,

    So, I guess this is what Jimmy Hendrix would have been had he been in a post apocaliptic graphic novel.Set in the world of Tim Truman s Scout series, this graphic novel has its highs and downs I, personnaly, wasn t all that crazy about the art, it seemed rushed.Still, it does get high points for being different than most of what was on the shelves at the time So, I guess this is what Jimmy Hendrix would have been had he been in a post apocaliptic graphic novel.Set in the world of Tim Truman s Scout series, this graphic novel has its highs and downs I, personnaly, wasn t all that crazy about the art, it seemed rushed.Still, it does get high points for being different than most of what was on the shelves at the time

    Quite possibly the most 70s comic book of all time It s very historically significant and Gulany s art is gorgeous but the story isn t that interesting, the obsession with individuality is tiresome and the sexual assault scene is handled poorly.

    What a weird, philosophical post apocalyptic comic book It s like a cross between Shaft and Death Race 2000 and an entry level college class on Ethics Weird stuff.
