Tim looks back on his comic book youth and wonders where he found some of the things that would be such a strong formative influence on him, like a little series by Bill Willingham and Mike Gustovich. Like "The Justice Machine."

I do remember Justice Machine. I had the cross over with the Elementals.

Looks like a sweet comic! I'm only familiar with Gustovich's work on Avengers: The Terminatrix Agenda... which I've been meaning to reread for a while now. This article is good motivation!!! Thx :)

I have every issue of the Comico series. Loved the Justice Machine.

I had almost forgotten about Justice Machine. I have all the Comico issues as well.

I never read the original five issues or the Elementals cross-over, but I really think that Tony Isabella's run is pretty good, for what it is, and while it's certainly not his best work, I think he did a pretty good job of taking over writing someone else's characters and concepts. I think other writers on the Comico run included Doug ('Nam) Murray and Len Wein, as well as Peter B. Gillis, and while these gents were and are talented writers, the title never engaged me like the Isabella issues. If you ever see them in a box of cheap comics at a store or comic book show, you could certainly do a lot worse.
