The Pow! Wham! Zap! Comic Book Trivia Quiz

Here is The Pow! Wham! Zap! Comic Book Trivia Quiz by Michael Uslan and Bruce Solomon, from 1977. As you can see by the blurb, Stan Lee thoroughly enjoyed it.

Now, when I see the name Michael Uslan, my first thought is the 6(?)-issue 1975-1976 run of DC's Beowulf The Dragon Slayer, which Uslan wrote, in which Beowulf met things like flying saucers, witch women, and Dracula -- none of which are in the original poem. Vlad "the Impaler" Dracula, of course, came around about a thousand years too late to meet the ol' B-boy, who was a near-contemporary of King Arthur (fl. 500-550 AD).

We have questions on humor comics, DC, the Fantastic Four amd the Hulk, and -- just a bunch of good stuff.

Gosh -- just think of those days, in 1977. Back then it WAS IN FACT POSSIBLE to "know everything" about a comic or comic-book character.

Rots o' Ruck on that today, campers!
