Wholesomely deranged: the sublime interstellar works of Robert Nunn

Welcome to the bizarro world of Robert Nunn, a welder from Missouri whose 70s self-published comics Earthman & Torch have been rediscovered as outsider art. Born of wholesome comics strips by way of Satanic Panic tracts, this pairing mashes vampire space horror with the adventures of an evangelical scare-mongering superhero.

When Power Comics editors met with Robert Nunn to propose this project, the 92 year old artist was inspired to pick up his pens and draw a brand-new sequel to Earthman, his first new comic in nearly 50 years. We are proud to present Earthman 2 for the first time ever in this 64 page volume.

Features an introduction and Torch essay by Power Comics executive partners, Evan Husney, Gabe Dikel and Rémy Bennett.
