Question!

I have a very very important question for everyone who reads this blog.

Why is there not, to my knowledge anyway, a MacGyver comic book?

Has there ever been a MacGyver comic?

Because that really seems like a missed opportunity there. What with all the implausible science, aversion to guns and what not.

Okay, I admit it, I just want to read a comic book where the hero takes out a militia with three paper clips, a rubber band, fountain pen and globe of the Earth, damnit. That sort of thing's timeless.

    How could you forget the Swiss-Army knife?! MacGuyver never went anywhere (save back in time to Camelott) without it. Shame!:)

    But Damn, now I;m curious to. This IS a great idea.

    If nothing else, write a fan-fic, this is gold for that to!

    My goodness, you ARE channelling Patty and Selma!

    Speaking of Richard Dean Anderson, what oh what was the name of that western that he did right after MacGyver? It had the guy who played "Q" as Nicola Tesla, and it was a hoot.

    Did you watch Burn Notice on USA, by any chance? It was a ton of fun, and he always managed to MacGuyver a bit of spy equipment in each ep.

    You know, I don't think there ever was one produced. I had thought Marvel tried to, but I did a little research for my own curiosity and I turned up nothing.

    Marvel released a short lived comic based on the A-Team, so it would only makes sense they would have grabbed the property.

    What's funny is that even though the concept would make an awesome comic (and teach physics/chemestry) it probably would not sell very well.

    So, to answer the question: I do not think one was ever published. I'm sure I would own every issue otherwise.

    Sally P: That would be Legend, about a hack author of pulp novels featuring a character called Nicodemus Legend who finds himself mistaken for the hero himself on a trip out west. Hooking up with Tesla, he becomes a real life... LEGEND!!!

    MacGuyver Adventures was going to be the flagship title of a revived Gold Key Comics line, but no one could draw the MacGuyver mullet properly.

    Thanks Dan. I really liked it, and I couldn't for the life of me, remember the name of it.
