Plastic Man-Jack Cole-1945

PLASTIC MAN by Jack Cole was the proverbial lightning in a bottle. No one since, no matter how well-intentioned, has managed to completely recapture the perfection of a Cole Plas story. As superhero series go, there are many more creative hits here than misses and many more stories that hold up still, even without a nostalgia factor. Everyone sees it and there have been some valiant and massively entertaining and fun efforts, but PLASTIC MAN by his creator was simply a one of a kind comic.
