My Favorite Comic Book of the 1970s-- The Gormandizer!

Over at When Falls the Coliseum, I wrote a brief piece about my favorite comic of the 1970s, the Gormandizer. A small preview:
The Gormandizer was Frankie Franklin, a competitive eating champion whose specialty was hot dogs. In the first issue, Frankie accidentally ingests hot dogs that have been irradiated by nuclear waste. Rather than dying of radiation poison, Frankie gets super powers, with the ability to eat anything at all, from nuclear waste to oil, to Twinkies.
The piece can be read in its entirety here.
