Hey, folks. Gavin here, totally horning in on David’s wonderful post. For those of you who are reading Shadowland: Power Man and you need a retro who’s who, check out my twoparter on Luke Cage’s early villains.

  1. When I got to Mr. Fish, I blurted out “No damn way.”

  2. Between this and the new Taskmaster mini, Van Lente’s been on a roll this month.

  3. Dang, I think I need to get Shadowland: Power Man.

  4. Also, I’m picturing those two dogs dancing to “Get On The Good Foot” by James Brown.

  5. I’m Dan Coyle, and I approve this review.

  6. Is Gavin the small one or the big one?

  7. I’m definitely the Brad Garrett dog.
