    Volume 19 - 1st printing. "Mike Ploog!" By Roger Ash and Eric Nolan-Weathington.

After an all too brief stint at Marvel Comics, Ploog returned to the world of animation and film, working on such classics as Ghostbusters, Ralph Bakshi's animated The Lord of the Rings, The Dark Crystal, and Labyrinth.
