TuxKamen The comic store I went to when I was 10 or so had a free box... picked up tons of Marvel Ages there, but also a lot of old Legion of Super-Heroes, which got me into that series. Sadly, when they moved, they also turned it into a quarter box, so I didn't get as many old books after that. Never came across this series, though, to the best of my memory.

Pub Lover If my name was Phil LeGreed I would wear a costume of delicate and intricate ornamentation made from gold or silver twisted wire, especially if I was a banker that takes it upon himself to act as a bailiff. Of course, living in the Marvel universe this would not be remarkable.

Count Mek Protoclown needs to be imprisioned for life so that he may only spend his time writing stuff like this.

Tom Foolery Please tell me that Marvel is going to turn this book into a movie as well. I've been hoping for an Alpha Flight movie for years now, but I may just settle for the U.S.1 movie. Say what you want, but I just know it would do better than Daredevil. On a side note... It is my new goal in life to stuff somebody's engine full of hay.

mburbank Thank you Protoclown.

Goronian Never before have we seen a superh... Su.. He... Action comic book lead with nothing interesting associated with him, aside from trucks and cliches. Clearly the mankind is safe in the hands of US1. Oh bother...

Poxpower Always I wonder: how on earth did they manage to get this team of relatively talented people to shit out 12 issues of that crap? Who paid for this?
There's no way this was a commercial success. I think X-Men might have paid for thousands of issues of Crystar and Trolls comics.

executioneer apart from protoclown, you mean?

Jaimas I'm amazed no one else pointed out that US's truck sort of resembles Optimus Prime.

Hahaha, how did I miss that caption?? Excellent. Your future here at I-Mockery Enterprises is no longer in jeopardy. However, if you want that promotion to Senior VP of ROFLs with the nice corner office, you'd better work Jack Burton into part deux (and as saturnknight suggested, some Over The Top references couldn't hurt your chances either).

saturnknight it sucks.... yet it's hard not to read, it's like cocaine, or some other drug. lol

i'd expect "Over The Top" references though lol

Copper Goofy as all hell, but is it wrong of me to want to know how it ends? *laughs*

Tetsu Deinonychus Wow, this is like a Redneck version of Speed Racer!

This also looks horrible.

Protoclown, you're a very brave person for reading this. I commend you!

Yep the Green Goblin head. Of all the things on I-mockery I love, hands down the Longbox is my favorite. I stopped reading in the early 90's when I was expected to fork over $20 for a black and silver Spiderman #1 on the day it came out.

I love the 99 cent box (used to be the 25 cent box) where you could find a gluttony of Radioactive Adolescent Black-belt Hamster books and of course the two-issue Theown series. Ahh the Charlotte Heroes Convention, how I miss you!

Why is it that you always seem to find such great stuff in the bargain bins, Proto? My shop's bin only has obscure 90's comics.
Yeah, if I were at all interested in the collected works or Rob Liefeld the bargain bin would be a great find. "Ooh, this is the issue starring a guy with pouches and guns who is built like a coffin with a tomato on top! I've been looking everywhere for it!"

in the quarter bin I found not just the first issue of U.S. 1, but all 12-issues.

Gilgongo Well, this was the era of BJ and the Bear, Smokey and the Bandit, Convoy ect...
There was a well established trucker fad in the late 70s the Marvel was clearly trying to cash in on. Looks like they jumped on the bandwagon a little late with this awful book. I'm amazed this made it a whole 12 issues.
