Young Master by Larry Hama and Val Mayerik

One of my favorite series from the late 80's published by New Comics Group (NCG) featuring the scripts by Larry Hama and full artwork by Val Mayerik. The covers, also painted by Mayerik, were outstanding. Issue #5 featured the art of another great artist, Alex Nino. Later, Nino went on to produce two issues of "Demon Blade" for NCG (with Chuck Dixon scripts). Regretfully, the "Demon Blade" issues were printed a bit too dark, so lots of Nino's line work got lots in the process...maybe now, in the Age of Reprints, someone will find the originals and do that book justice (as well as come out with a "Young Master" collection!).
