Cavalcade Comics #6 – The return of Chuck Norris and The A-Team!

Cavalcade Comics

Here we are, back with another issue of Cavalcade Comics and another entry in my Vintage Comic Throwdowns series.  This issue will be a first.  It’s the first time I’ve brought back characters for a return appearance.

The Chuck Norris/A-Team issue was pretty popular last time.  Probably because it’s kind of an awesome idea, if I do say so myself.  So, I thought I’d bring those guys back for a second adventure.  And here’s the cover:

The truth is, I actually created two covers for the A-Team/Chuck Norris team up. I wasn’t sure which one to use and instead of just presenting them as variant covers like I did for the Ghost Rider issue, I finally decided to run with the one you saw in issue #5.  But that left me with this unused cover.  So I thought, why not make it a part 2?  And here we go, the first 2 part appearance in Cavalcade Comics history.  But it won’t be the last.  I’ve already got plans for a return of Billy the Kid.

The covers used to make this issue were mostly Chuck Norris #3 (left) and The A-Team #2 (right).

I had to do some manipulating of the page layout and I added a few more unsavory characters to the background.  You’ll notice the logos are essentially the same on both of my issues as they came from this issue.  However, I took out Amy Allen’s name from the A-Team logo and created some ‘And Chuck Norris’ text to go in its place.  That was done on both issue #5 and issue #6.  However, you’ll notice Amy does make an appearance this time in the back whereas I cut her out completely last issue.

As I look at them side by side now, I think I personally prefer this cover over the last one.  However, issue #5 was the perfect layout to introduce the first team up of these two action legends.

So, yes, I’m still cranking these covers out and having a blast doing it.  I have two or three more covers actually finished that I’ve never even posted.  One of them will be an upcoming holiday issue.  And look for small “updates” to happen in coming issues like changes to the Cavalcade Comics title logo at the top and some modifications to the appearance of the corner box.  Just trying to change certain things up as we move along.  Keep it fresh.  Hope you are still enjoying these covers.  I know I still love doing them.
