Manic Monday--I'm Spartacus!

Because some mornings... just need to see Kirk Douglas in a loin cloth.

I miss the good old days when Dell would do lots and lots of movie adaptations, especially of things you never thought you'd see in a comic book.


The bonus part of this adaptation?

John Buscema artwork!!

Gaylord Du Bois did the script, supposedly adapted from Dalton Trumbo's screenplay. But there are significant differences. Take, for example, the famous "I'm Spartacus" scene...

That's not quite how it went down in the movie...

Sorry, Dell. The movie is better.

From Four Color #1139 (1960)
