Italian Movie Comic

There were two series of comics with the title Logan's Run. Marvel Comics did a five issue movie adaptation and carried the story , as told in the movie, onward through issue #8. The story was just starting to get interesting whne it was cancled. You can still find old issues of this series at comic book stores.
Comic collectors will take note at Bizarre Adventures #2. This magazine sized digest held a pre-Logan's Run story called "The Huntsman." This was originally intended to be a backup story for future issues of Logan's Run had the Marvel comic continued. It was a fascinating look at a cross between the sandman as shown in the movie and their earlier version as seen in the book. Someone at Marvel cared enough to try to tie these two, almost completely unrelated items, different versions of this story together. Well worth looking for at flea markets and the like. The Huntsman has a gun with a liminted number of shots. His uniform was different as well, though on the cover is shown a typical Sandman outfit. He had the strange narrow stripe with the vertical stripes as shown in the MGM fashon show on one version of the laserdisk and on the the DS HQ movie page

The comics were evidently printed in England and even translated into Spanish and Italian. Shown above is the combined version of all the movie adaptation stories in a softbound edition. The interior was printed in Black and White. The back cover was similar to the promotional teaser poster from the movie. To the right is a sample page in Italian. If you check out the bottom of this page you can see the first three panels of this page in English form the original art.

In England, a country famous for 'annuals', a Logan's Run Annual was. This hard bound book has many wonderful pictures from the television series including many closeups of the interiors of the vehicles used in the show. It also had a few marginal stories and a few nifty comic strips. There was an introductor comic strip boiling down the basic plot of why Logan ran in the first place (just in case someone had not seen the show) boiled down inot about three pages. One of the comic strips was in full color and dealt with a village of Samauri warriors. Another was in Black and white and green. There were also some stories with full and partial page illustarations. There was a page about the vehicles used in the TV show. There was a section asbout how other SF TV shows had happeend before Logan's Run (Star Trek and Doctor Who were featured there) There was even a silly board game in the center of the book. The Logan's Run Annual was definitely a TV related item.

Updated 12-20-2001 Marvel Comics also produced a series of short TV based adventures for the Look In magazine (The Junior TV Times). The Logan story ran in several issues of this British publication. 19 of these comics are now online here! Special thanks to Stephen Fox .for many of the comics. Thanks also to Robert C Yancey for additinal comics! For more information about Look-In check out John's Look-Out web site! A fantastic resource packed with covers, listings of the various features, and changes to the publicaiton over the years. The series strip, which ran for at least 24 weeks, ended on September 30th 1978. The first issue in April aslo featured the show on the front cover, had a Logan poster inside, (it was the picture of the group in front of the red door with the blue tin foil around it. as well as the article below about the show. Look-In also had an annual publication which at least had some nice color photos from the series as well as a few comics the same year. (Though I have heard from others that the 78 annual only had one color picture. ) There was one earlier issue (Jan 21 1978) which had a large article on the series before the comic strip started running in early April of the same year. That article can be found below also!

30 September 1978 Final Story
Courtsey of Stephen Fox

In the Mid 1980's Malibu Graphics ( makers of both Adventure Comics and Aircell comics) signed a deal with William F. Nolan to adapt his books to the comic format. The story adaptation was fantastic! The theme was very much in keeping with the novels and the story had a great pace! The art however was handed to the 'hack' who drew ElfLord. A very popular artist of the time who could not really draw anything well unless that character was a big eyed elf. Later this same artis went on to draw some of the Elfquest comics. It was at that point I discontinued reading Elfquest. The comic ran long enough to see the entire first and second novels completed, but did not adapt Logan's Search. At the same time they produced some great Planet of the Apes books some 'OK' Alien Nation comics. These 'new' Logan's Run comics are not to bad if you can overlook the fact that everyone looks like a Nazi elf. The adaptation is very faithful to the novels in both content and spirit. Shown below are some of the outstanding covers they had on a few of the issues.

In my collection I have a few original Logans Run pages. This is part of one from issue #5
