Final Warning from Marvel Preview

Final Warning
by Lynn Graeme (story) and Frank Miller (art)
from Marvel Preview: Bizarre Adventures 2 (1980)

Even by my forgiving standards, the Fall, 1980 issue (No. 24) of Marvel Preview is pretty awful. The cover art, by Clyde Caldwell, is pure cheese, and the contents of the issue are even more trite and banal.

The sole saving grace in the entire magazine is a short strip titled 'Final Warning', written by the magazine's editor, Lynne Graeme, and illustrated by an up-and-coming Frank Miller. 

The strip has the cramped, low-res styling of an underground comic, which is probably why it works as well as it does.........
