On this day, 29 March 1980: Speed
Sarge Baker’s in a sticky situation. One of the most memorable Speed covers, this, by Mike Western.
Baker’s Half-Dozen, a WWII serial in the mould of Battle’sDarkie’s Mob and The Sarge, seemed a slightly odd fit for velocity-themed comic Speed. It was my first experience of a war strip, but I remember enjoying it because it was strongly character-based, and the great art.
