1986: Urban Nightmare

1986: Urban Nightmare

You can consider this a sidenote to the "History of Captain Satellite" series. Our subject today is Urban Nightmare. While there seems to be precious little art of the Nightmare prior to 2007, I do still possess his very first appearance.

The truly remarkable thing about this artifact is that I can put a date on it. You see, the full sheet of paper also includes a reference to the Steve Winwood song "Freedom Overspill" which was receiving radio airplay at the time. Since "Freedom Overspill" was released as a single in 1986, that surely places the Urban Nightmare's creation during that year, too.
