Prof. Wexler World Explorer
I have been reading World Explorer Magazine for almost as long as I have been actively working toward being published. It has loads of idea's for my brand of speculative fiction. But don't get me wrong, what is contained in World Explorer while speculative MIGHT be true and I hold its founder David Hatcher Childress in the highest regard. I love his books.Along with stories of lost civilizations, cryptid animals, and other strange tales of discovery there are always a few comics of a Prof. Wexler, the intrepid world explorer himself who investigates all manner of high strangeness and mystic mystery.I recently acquired a copy of the first graphic novel of Prof. Wexler's exploits, by Charles Berlin and found it very enjoyable. Besides the single panel splash's there are several short tales in the graphic as well as some very early panels I had not yet seen.Most of the comics deal with the speculative forces of aliens, cryptids, lost treasures, etc so they may require at least a little familiarity to get the joke. But overall I enjoy Berlin's work and Character and look forward to whatever he comes up with for the next issue of WEX.
