This is the story of Bubber.
You heard me. No, It's not the story of Rubber.
Bubber is the son of Sam. No, not the mass murderer. He's Sam's son, the deaf kid with amazing strength and skill. Skill that Sam uses for his own purposes.
When I first read this story in EERIE # 79 both my friend and I would laugh at his name. We just don't see many "Bubber's" where I come from. The scenes where the fans are chanting his name were particularly amusing to my buddy.
But Bubber's story is far from funny. Nope. It is a tale with tradgedy of biblical proportions, you might say. Certainly a cautionary tale for all parents.
The story is written by Bruce Jones, Pencilled by Carmine Infantino, and Inked by Al Milgrom.
Those names should be familiar to most comic fans. I think I've already mentioned my appreciation for Bruce Jones work. Carmine Infantino is a DC legend, and he does a typically perfect job of story-telling here.
Al Milgrom 's inks fit over Infantino's pencils like a glove, their styles working together as one.
