Al Williamson enjoyed using friends and fellow artists as models for specific characters in X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan. But nowhere in the strip does the in-joke get better than in this sequence from September 1974. Corrigan is, of course, Al. Enrique is writer Archie Goodwin, Al’s co-conspirator on the strip. The guys were having fun with this one!
This story, as well as many others, will be in X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan volume 3, to be released later this year.
