Granted, you might not think of him as a comics star. But lest we forget...
...and not just any comic - the GROOVIEST!
Okay. Maybe you don't count The Partridge Family comic books, saying they were merely a tv product tie-in and not true "comics". (I'd disagree with you, but you might say that)
But he also had his own title...
...and not just in the USA...
How's your Dutch? They gave David & the family about 100 pages - lots to read!
But, that is still with The Partridge Family, so maybe doubts linger. Very well, then. Let's skip over to Britain and an old title of which i'm rather fond, we've gone there before and we'll go there again - Look-In. In late 1972, David popped up with his own ongoing strip, and took the cover while doing so:
As mentioned previously, these comics were generally short installments, only two pages per chapter. Here's the first 3 issues worth:
You might be wondering what happens next. As am i. My collection is spotty, at best, and i'm missing the first few issues of 1973. However, we do have a complete short tale here from the Look-In 1973 Holiday Special for you, that you might find a little closure of sorts:
It's also worth noting that when David Cassidy gets together with the boys, he drives-
There you have it - bona fide comic star.
And yet, in the internet age, there are always those doubters in the back of the digital room. So let's drive a stake through the heart of that, shall we?
David Cassidy also played one of the classic Rogue's Gallery villains on The Flash - Sam Scudder, the Mirror Master:
David Cassidy - Comics Star, any way you want to look at him.
Sadly, he did.
He'll be missed by a lot of fans of other media, but comic book fans should remember him, too.
So long, David. I'll always be a fan...
