The Horse Head Five..."Quantum Leap" Comics

In grade school...Horse Head wanted to be an astronaut. He wanted the mad-skills of eating an entire slice of pizza in a single chomp ala Ninja Donatello.

And he also wanted to randomly "bounce through time...putting things right that once went wrong"...like Sam Beckett (and his friend, Al) in the early '90s sci-fi TV series, Quantum Leap.

So when Horse Head discovered Innovation Comics published a Quantum Leap series (1991 -1993)...he nearly "leaped" his pants.

Each comic was a complete story and almost like watching an episode...minus the commercials. The run was short...(13 issues + 1 special edition)...but they're pretty good, lightweight fare and still a fairly easy series to complete.

"Carried Away" - Crosby, Stills, Nash (1977)


You came from out of the skies
Your skin and your eyes, the colors of bronze
The moon in your ear twinkled and shone
Soon you'll be gone.

Sailing out on the blue, your old man and you
Drifting along, leaving me here
Thinking it through
Soon you'll be gone.

Moving through my changes as fast as I can
Trying to bring a balance to me and the man
Part of me is screaming to say
I wannna be carried away.

From out of the skies
Your skin and your eyes, the colors of bronze
The star in your ear twinkled and shone
Soon you'll be gone.

Good stuff!
