Greetings, everyone. I’ve been a bit absent the last month as I’m in heavy training for my marathon and amidst preparations for the holidays…or should I say, Holley-days?
Today’s post was originally planned for Ninja Day this year but I really dropped the ball on that one. But, I wanted to get it out there, so here is issue #5 in my ongoing Cavalcade Comics Vintage Comic Throwdowns series.
The A-Team Meet Chuck Norris.
I think CT should get a kick out of this one. How cool would it have been if Chuck had actually joined The A-Team? Amazing to think about.
This cover was contructed mostly from two Marvel Comics issues. Yes, Marvel had both an A-Team comic and a Chuck Norris comic. Similar to the previous Godzilla vs The Shogun Warriors, why this particular crossover never happened before now is beyond me.
The A-Team come from the first issue of their comic (left) and Chuck comes from the second issue of his comic (right). I also used logos and a few extra ninjas from other issues of each of these series.
For some reason Chuck Norris and the Karate Commandos was under the Star imprint, which was Marvel’s line of kids comics featuring things like Alf, Thunder Cats and Star Wars: Droids. This was most likely because the Chuck comic was based on the cartoon of the same name.
Hope you guys are having a great holiday. I do have some stuff planned for before the end of December, so stay tuned!
