The Saga of Crystar

The Scoop
 In 1982, Remco released a line of action figures and vehicles under the name The Saga of Crystar, Crystal Warrior. A year later a comic book series featuring the toys was released by Marvel. One would think that the comic book was based on the toys when in fact it the entire line was created and owned by Marvel comics.

The series lasted for 11 issues but it was issue 8 that interested me, or at least the cover. Glen Danzig swiped the Michael Golden drawn skull on the cover for the logo of his band. (see below)

  1. Danzig is a big comic geek and even did his own book but never realized he lifted that skull from Crystar. Guys a douche so I wouldn't put it past him.

    I had Moltar and a few Magma Men that I used to fight against my Joes and Insecticon stuff.

    Great find on the Danzig skull,
