...I discovered that Jon Sharpe was an alias. It's one of the many pseudonyms used by a guy named, as far as I can tell, David Robbins. (NOTE: It looks like Robbins only wrote #275 of the Trailsman, which means, I assume the Jon Sharpe is a whole host of people, and David Robbins is the only one who'll own up to having anything to do with it!) And lookee what David Robbins puts his real name on!
Yes! It's an "explosive new series of survival in a post-nuclear age"! I love this cover! It's sooo nice and hyper-masculine. The dirty, bruised guy is posed (nice little snarl there) with his GIANT knife just-so...It's sooo, soooo, well, PHALLIC!Don't believe me? Well, what about this one?
Here we have mortar rounds and a BAZOOKA! posed ever so alluringly. Seriously, who reads these?
