Marvel Spotlight on Son of Satan #16-17 (1974)

The weirdness of Gerber’s Son of Satan run continues, as he pays tribute to Sgt. Pepper’s.  The police find 4,000 holes in the park.  The hoes are full of a red powder, and when Son of Satan comes on the scene, his Hellfire jumps into each hole, the smoke rises, and turns into a dragon.

I have to confess: I didn’t understand what happened next.  But involved Adam, the first man, who is truly grotesque and wields an axe, and is trying to kill all humans because humans became too violent.  Using the disease to cure the disease, I guess.

And it involved poking fun of scientists.

Creators: Steve Gerber and Jim Mooney
Grade: C-
