The Human Target

I'm kind of curious about Fox's new version of The Human Target which debuts tonight. I remember not liking the first version too much but this one actually looks pretty decent, at least from the few ads I've seen. I first got exposed to the character when he was a backup in The Brave And The Bold in the late 70's. The great Jim Aparo even drew him on the cover of his first B&B, #143, October, 1978.



The inside story was by Len Wein and Dick Giordano, not a bad creative team I must say. I enjoyed the series while it lasted and hopefully the new TV series will preserve some of that. We'll just have to wait and see.

I liked the show, but it seems to have strayed from the original concept, which was Christopher Chase as master of disguise who actually took his clients' place.
