The Next Man, a comic book by writer Roger Mc Kenzie (Hulk, Ghost Rider) and Vince Argondezzi ( Racer X, Speed Racer, Cosmos' Commandoes) revive the story of the most traumatic post war syndrome of all...

25 years have elapsed since David Boyd, Boonie, Doctor Cross, and a host of other characters first graced the pages of comics.Now these characters are being revived, in print and soon to be online.
The nowadays commonplace subjects like Euthinasia, and the aftermath of the Vietnam war were not talked about too much in the mid eighties in comics. Roger Mc Kenzie and Vince Argondezzi brought the eclectic Next Man to the independent comics realm in the those heady days, and in doing so, opened up the subject matter to these and many other issues, in quite a dramatic fashion. It's where the award winning writer, Mc Kenzie, of the Hulk, Captain America and Ghost Writer, and cartoonist/commercial artist/ illustrator Argondezzi, later to lend his skills to the majors also, brought about a cacophony of racing motorcycles, government agents,computers, and secret projects into a thoughtful and introspective romp into the Unknown.
"In the light of America's more recent military conflicts, these storylines and concepts are more important than ever," Argondezzi states. "The super hero has always been a fantastic vehicle, an excellent metaphor for the super heroic efforts and problems that our men and women in the military services have to deal with every day, in war, and after these battles are consumated. Rog and I have used Next Man as an analogy for the journey of these brave folks. It is by their sacrifices and determination that we as artists and free people are given the privilege of exploring the future; it's only through the freedom that they graciously secure for us, can that future and it's positive possibilities also be secure."
