AGAR-AGAR "Rendevous with Aquarius"

We've done a lot of Golden Age stories, now let's leap into the Bronze Age...
...and the psychedelic world of Agar-Agar, the wildest space-heroine since Barbarella!
"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 a half-dozen installments, each one weirder than the previous.
Illustrated in a Peter Max-esque style by Alberto Solsona.
Written by Luis Gasca under the pen-name Sadko (which he also used as the scripter on Wolff, another strip in Dracula, illustrated by Estaban Maroto, which we'll be running in Hero Histories™).
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.
The remaining 3 stories have been unseen by American audiences, but will be posted here over the next few months.
It'll be a groovy trip, baby!

  1. The Dracula series did continue in Spanish it seems (I have issue 17 of Dracula) - Buru Lan Comics. The listings mention up to issue 24 but I have no idea if Agar Agar appeared in those issues (not in 17).
