Campy but entertaining enough
I won't be able to put this comic in proper context as I did not live through the 1970s. In this era of five television stations and no internet, the popularity of a real life stuntsman like Knievel is beyond anything which people could expect of similar acts in the modern day with all kinds of reality tv shows and youtube. With that in mind, there is something to be said here for the accuracy of celebrity, and at times this is a little lacking. It does a good job to show off Knievel's various vehicles, but at times the character is too comic book like, performing actions that are somewhat impossible and being faced with threats that are not indicative of real life. This is a short self contained story though, and forgetting everything else, it shows off the actions of a fairly brave (if not foolhardy) individual.
