Back in the Stone Age I used to religiously read the The Destroyer books. #'s one thru 25 and totally enjoyed them. Got away from them as I grew older. Took a flyer on this one and it brought back memories. The wise cracking was still there as well as an the adventure. Will definitely catch up on them.
