AGAR-AGAR "Rendevous with Aquarius"

Star-Crossed, a new show on the CW, is about human and alien teens in love...
...but sci-fi and comics have been doing that for decades!
"This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius...Age of Aquarius..."
Oops, sorry, got carried away there for a second.
This surreal mini-series had eight installments, each one weirder than the previous.
Agar-Agar "got physical" (in a PG-13 way) with a variety of life-forms including centaurs, super-heroes, and a human or two.
Illustrated in a Peter Max-esque style by Alberto Solsona.
Written by Luis Gasca under the pen-name "Sadko" and published in England as part of Dracula (1971), a 12-issue partworks by New English Library, the first 3 tales made their American debut in Warren Publishing's Dracula TPB which reprinted #1-#6 of the British Dracula's run in 1973.
You can see the series, including the five stories that have never been seen by American readers, at our "sister" blog, Heroines™.
It'll be a groovy trip, baby!
Next week:
We haven't decided yet what it'll be, but we can guarantee that...
You'll Cry Your Eyes Out if You Miss It!
(Oh, you've heard that, eh?)

And now a word from out sponsor...
