Reich # 8

24 Pages Digest size, color covers, black and white interior,$4.00, from Elijah Brubaker

Thru Sparkplug Comics PO Box 10952 Portland OR 97296-0952

The ongoing saga of Dr Wilhelm Reich a Psychoanalyst and sex researcher circa 1930.

Reich travels to America in 1946. And is interviewed regarding his Energy Accumulator. The interviewer jumps to the conclusion that the Accumulator cures cancer. The same problem Reich had with the Norwegian press in Europe. He says "They Crucified me for it too, Vultures"

He continues his experiments in America, his Daughter comes to visit him, and they discuss strained family relations.

Brubaker's art work has the flavor of 30's and 40"s setting the tone for the story.

Not every ones cup of tea, that's for sure. But keep in mind this complete series could become a must have for a serious small press collector.
