A Year of Cool Comics – Day 120

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today we continue a multi-part look at the various notable recurring features in Strange Adventures over the years – today’s spotlight is on the Faceless Creatures of Saturn!

Enjoy!

The Faceless Creatures of Saturn are particularly interesting because, well, A. They’re faceless creatures fro Saturn – which is awesome and B. they have become one of the longest lasting characters from the pages of Strange Adventures, showing up in stories in multiple books over the last couple of years.

We first meet them in Strange Adventures #124, with a story by Gardner Fox and art by Mike Sekowsky…

the Earthmen help them out by telling them of a “face” on Earth that is no longer ON Earth!

Next, in #142, they return, now with art by Carmine Infantino…

Finally, they make their last appearance in #153, with art by Gil Kane…

Chun Yull has popped up a few times over the years, most notably, he was used by Geoff Johns recently as one of the many bounty hunters trying to capture Hal Jordan. And recently he popped up in the World of New Krypton storyline.

I didn’t realize the faceless folks had that many appearances.

The “faceless hunter from space!” is currently recurring on the Brave & the Bold cartoon as an enforcer for Starro.
