"Not 'Hollywood Independent' - writer John Oak Dalton is the real Real Thing." --Cinema Minima."Very weird and unpopular b-movies and comics."--Blogalicious. "After watching the film I am left to wonder if he had some childhood trauma he is not telling us about."--IMDB user review. "Screenwriter John Oak Dalton wanted to be in Hollywood. Instead, he's in the rustic kitchen above the Germania General Store, stirring a pot of boiling hot dogs."

Star Comics, 1976-2012
Above is the cover of Star Comics, circa 1976, where my god-like Superman-type figure, White Miracle, apparently gets pissed off, grabs a flying surfboard, and goes rogue. Lined up to stop him are Starman, Rockman, Stretcho, and Shadowman, who have only a coincidental similarity to the Golden Age Starman, The Thing, Elongated Man, and a Mego Spider-Man wearing a Mego Batman's costume. They are aided by the White Miracle of the 74th Century, an apparent nod to my fascination with the Legion of Super-Heroes and the color orange. The real question is, has my art style really evolved, more than 35 years later?
