COMIC LEGEND: Unused Logan’s Run comics became a Bizarre Adventures story.
Just last week we discussed Logan’s Run and I said I’d have a little bit more about Marvel’s Logan’s Run comic.
Marvel has always been unwilling to just let unused stories go to waste (as seen in this previous legend, in this previous legend and in this previous legend, so a Logan’s Run back-up that was likely going to run through Logan’s Run #9 and #10 by Archie Goodwin and Michael Golden instead became a brand-new story in Bizarre Adventures #28!
Our own Greg Hatcher wrote about the story a few years back here.
Here is one of the original pages. You can see right on top where it says it was intended for Logan’s Run #10!
