Not so long ago, I Retro Reviewed the first adventure of telepath Matt Price, from the far-flung Silver Age of comics. Now, we stop, collaborate and listen, ’cause Matt’s back in a brand-new edition (but hopefully one that will outlast the legacy of Vanilla Ice.) Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
The Silver Age of Comics was chock-full of guys whose artwork was unique and powerful, and the likes of Jack Kirby or Wally Wood could generate a panel that would blow you away.

Your Major Spoilers (retro) review awaits!
