Remember Adam Ant Comics?

Greetings Ghouls! As some of you may know, I have an affinity for what the kids call “80’s music” (or as we called it back then; “Music”). One of my favorite performers from that era was the theatrical genius known as Adam Ant. And while countless millions of folks worldwide are familiar with his awesome music, few know of his days as an adventure seeker, straddling the dimensions of time and space. Yes fiends, Adam Ant, the hero of a hundred ages, went on quite a series of fantastic adventures featuring action, intrigue and apparently Satan (perhaps Rock N’ Roll is the devil’s music after all!).

So how do we know of Adam’s deeds? Well, fortunately his journeys were documented in the pages of “TV Tops” magazine by the erstwhile scribes Maureen and Gordon Gray. Unfortunately, finding copies of these pages is as difficult as beating Minh Thai in a Rubik’s Cube challenge.

So, what follows is a small sample of Adam’s totally bananas (and surely non-fictional) exploits that more than likely took place during a lunch break while filming the video for “Stand and Deliver”, followed by my own tribute to these amazing adventures!

  1. Great post as always, Daniel Th1rte3n! I had no idea that Adam Ant ever had a comic series. Was TV Tops a British Magazine? It kind of has that 2000 A.D. look to the pages.

  2. Atari Adventure Square says:

    I never knew he had a comic book existence, but it makes perfect sense.

    Still have Goody Two Shoes stuck in my head after all these years.
