THE BATTALION #1 (Unpublished) (1969)
Tom Sciacca

The Battalion--unpublished, by George, featuring Astron--- the original pages were stapled together as a book, and distributed to read thru Cardinal Hayes High School--only the one original copy.. in English class, the teacher/priest took it from a student and tore it in half...I retrieved it from the trash taped it up...later in 1977 at marvel gave it back to George.

To set the story straight, I brought George to the convention, I believe in 1971, New York comic art con run by Phil Seuling..George had never been to a comic con before---we were introduced to Sal Quartucchio, who introduced us to Jim Glenn, now actor Teel James Glenn, and the first published work was in Factors Unknown #2, stranded, a story I wrote and George penciled---we later did stuff in #3, he then did Hot Stuf, my Conjure., and in 1974 we broke into Marvel, he doing Man Wolf, me writing for Archie Goodwin, later becoming an assistant to Stan Lee---
