Groovy Agent brings you...The Prankster!

Our pal the Groovy Agent has posted scans of the one and only installment of "The Prankster", an Aparo-drawn backup feature from an issue of Charlton's Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt.

This wacky sci-fi superhero is fondly remembered by those who have read this (unfortunately) never-continued debut. Jim was a huge science fiction fan, and I think he always wanted to do a lot more in the genre than he had the chance to do at DC. Alas, this was not one of the features DC purchased from Charlton, so it may be that we'll never see the Prankster's return (but then, without O'Neill and Aparo executing the pages, do we really even want to?). Go give it a look-see, and bookmark GA's site for ongoing comics fun!
