HOUSE OF YANG #1 July 1975
Just take a look at that stunningly beautiful painted cover Mr. Kim delivers!
House Of Yang is by far one of the finest series in all of Charlton's many titles, not just due to Kim's art but Joe Gill's scripts (many written around Kim's story suggestions) are some of the best of his career. Details on the creation of the book can be found in the text piece included , "Welcome To The House Of Yang".
HOY is a rarity in that it ties into a continuity seldom seen in the Charlton Universe, as it's a companion to the earlier YANG title, the two main characters of the books being cousins in the storylines.
It lasted only a year and 6 issues, but what a great run it was while it lasted.
