This time we look at and talk about some incredibly non-essential publications from comics history and answer some of your welcome letters and emails.  We have romance with Teen Confessions, thrilling drama with Have You The Nerve To Face The Unexpected, and rubbish with Wrath.

We also ponder the question: Malibu Comics, did it flip or did it float?

    from the article:

    “At one point in time he possessed the Infinity Gauntlet from the Marvel Universe.”

    LOL

    Why flip and float? I’m thinking they were going for some sort of misguided ‘beach cool’ brand identity

    THINGS I SORT OF REMEMBER ABOUT MALIBU:

    Rune was totally maybe going to be killing the Silver Surfer. It said so in an advert once.

    Juggernaut was in the Malibu universe, and so were some other Marvel characters (not important ones).

    I’m pretty sure there was a Malibu character who had the gimmick of being a man who could transform into a super-powered woman? Which could lead to all sorts of vaguely interesting adventures, but I’m guessing it didn’t.

    Darick Robertson was somehow involved with Malibu, I think perhaps he was working on a team book, but didn’t get as much control as he wanted, leading to strife?

    Malibu had futuristic computer colouring, that led to Marvel buying them, if I am remembering correctly.

    Maybe I could read all about the Malibu Universe (sorry, ‘Ultraverse’) on Wikipedia?

    Jings, the mid-90s. My formative comics years. Oh dear.

    I’m sure there’s lots we could all learn about Malibu comics but, really, who want to? Perhaps it will all seem interesting in another ten years or so like Charlton Comics are now.
