*DC: Originally co-created by Jack Kirby in Showcase #6, the Challengers of the Unknown were four adventurers who were brought together by a plane crash that ought, by all reason, to have killed them. Since they were ‘living on borrowed time’, the quartet decided to use their special skills to fight all threats, terrestrial and otherwise, to the betterment of humankind. Later joined by two honorary lady members (it was the Sixties…), the Challengers mainly ended up fighting monsters, aliens, robots, and at least one monster alien robot woman! Fondly recalled by many as sporting some of the goofier nemeses of the Silver Age, we have added 16 new issues to our listings of the Challengers’ own series, from #21 through to #74. Highlights include their crossover with the other Champions of the Bizarre, the Doom Patrol, in #48, and a Deadman guest-appearance illustrated by Neal Adams in #74, but each and every issue has a distinctive quality you won’t find anywhere else.
