About Me

I'm the co-host of THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO with Dana & Carl (Sunday nights, 9 to Midnight Eastern, www.westcottradio.org).  As a freelance writer, I contributed to Goldmine magazine from 1986-2006, wrote liner notes for Rhino Records' compilation CD Poptopia!  Power Pop Classics Of The '90s, and for releases by The Flashcubes, The Finkers, Screen Test, 1.4.5., and Jack "Penetrator" Lipton.  I contributed to the books Bubblegum Music Is The Naked Truth, Shake Some Action, Lost In The Grooves, and MusicHound Rock, and to DISCoveries, Amazing Heroes, The Comics Buyer's Guide, Yeah Yeah Yeah, Comics Collector, The Buffalo News, and The Syracuse New Times.  I also wrote the liner notes for the four THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO compilation CDs, because, well, who could stop me?  My standing offer to write liner notes for a Bay City Rollers compilation has remained criminally ignored.  Still intend to write and sell a Batman story someday.

Captain Marvel Presents The Terrible 5 # 1



Great news, splittable superhero fans! Although we've already seen all four issues of Captain Marvel, M. F. Enterprises' short-lived attempt to cash in on the 1966 superhero boom by creating an unrelated character named after one of the most famous superheroes in comics history, there's still more! Specifically, there are still two issues of the separate series Captain Marvel Presents The Terrible 5, the first of which we present today.

If you missed Boppin' (Like The Hip Folks Do)'s previous encore presentations of the Detachable Defender, don't despair--they're still here: Captain Marvel # 1, # 2, # 3, and # 4. M. F. Enterprises' Captain Marvel is likely an orphaned property, but we'll presume it's copyright the respective owner, and presented here as fair use. The end is near! But right now, please enjoy Captain Marvel Presents The Terrible 5 # 1.
