Bullets and Bracelets was a TV series based on the Amalgam Comics series of the same name. It ran on the NBABC Network between 1979 and 1984. The series chronicled the adventures of Diana Prince, an exiled Amazon Warrior, and Trevor Castle, a bloodthirsty vigilante obsessed with vengeance. It starred Lynda Carter and Dolph Lundgren in the lead roles. The first series was set in World War II and followed the two main characters’ efforts to hunt down and kill Nazi spies and saboteurs. At the beginning of season two the pair are shown being magically transported through time and from then on they brought their brand of swift and bloody justice to the modern day crooks of New York City. Despite being a huge ratings success the show was eventually cancelled due to growing concerns over its violent content.

The original cover is Action Comics #454 (1975) and is by Bob Oksner. Morrissey and Sandie Shaw are by me.
In 1979 Pattel Brothers released a new toy marketed as ‘Romsworth The Space Butler’. Pattel Brothers gambled that this radically new different type of space adventurer would capture the hearts of young children who had grown tired of playing with action figures based on more traditional action heroes such as explorers, superheroes and soldiers.
The gamble didn’t pay off. The Romsworth toy sold abysmally and Pattel Brothers almost went bust.
But the story of Romsworth does not end there. To build interest in the toy, Patell Brothers licensed the character to Amalgam Comics which created a comic book featuring Romsworth. The comic expanded on the premise that Romsworth was an alien, cyborg butler and gave him an origin, personality, set of supporting characters and villains, as well as interaction within the Amalgam Universe. Romsworth’s series ran for 75 issues and even after its cancellation the character remained popular with fans and eventually found a home within the Dark Claw franchise. In Sleuth Comics #572 (1987) continuity was retconned and it was established that Romsworth had come to Earth just in time to save Logan “Dark Claw” Wayne from the Weapon X project.
ROMSWORTH THE BUTLER has served Dark Claw faithfully ever since!
Alfred Pennyworth is drawn by Eric Shanower and is from Who’s Who in the DC Universe #3 (1990). Rom is drawn by Steve Leialoha and P. Craig Russell and is from Rom:Space Knight #65 (1985).
Judge Dan Dredd is the strongest Judge in Cactus City One! His mighty strength is surpassed only by his dedication to the Law. Dan delivers instant justice to anyone who breaks the Law, and anyone who gets in between him and his Cow Pies!
HE IS DESPERATE DREDD!
Rob Liefeld’s Maus
I made myself feel a little sad with this one. :(
The two men are from Kirkman and Liefeld’s The Infinte (2011) and are drawn by Rob Liefeld. The two mice and the Hitler Cat are of course from Art Spiegelman’s superb Maus.
Seriously, everyone should read Maus!
