Because YOU (i.e. two people at SPX) requested more Mai, here is my personal favorite sequence, in which writer Kudō demonstrates that he is absolutely not fucking around with this teen superpower shit; Cyclops is gonna take some civilian heads off with the optic blasts, so to speak.
(Mai, the Psychic Girl, Ryōichi Ikegami, written by Kazuya Kudō, c. 1985)
this? this is great. (also i want her cap.)
i followed the entirety of the so-called “archie legion” era of legion of super-heroes in large part for saturn girl doing wonders for my possibly stereotypical teenage-girl affection for fantasy fiction about teenage girls with awesome psychic powers, naive emotions, and really bad decision-making skills; this is that, distilled into eight pages of a literal feelings car crash over a cute dog. that panel where the car leaps off the ground into psychedelic terror! i can hear the theremin/violin shrieking in my eyes!
now i need to get myself a copy of these comics.
