Tiger Boy

Okay, I've seen a lot of strange things before, but Tiger Boy may well be one of the strangest. Written by Otto Binder, sf writer and comic scripter responsible for the first "I, Robot," with art by Jonny Quest co-creator Doug Wildey and comic art legend Gil Kane, Tiger Boy seems to have appeared in only two adventures. I just can't imagine why a magic tiger with a human face wasn't a huge success...

For a character with the ability to do anything, turning into a strange half-boy/half-tiger seems an odd choice, but at least Paul Canfield isn't a one trick pony, as evidenced by my favorite line of all: "Steel Man EATS bullets!" Well, naturally.
