Ralph Snart Adventures Volume 5

One year to the month after the last issue of the "Mind Games" mini-series, RSA returned with a new series written and drawn by Marc Hansen. This series was characterized by relatively short Ralph Snart stories complemented by other Hansen work, including "Fid" and colorized excerpts from the Dr. Gorpon mini-series (originally published by Eternity Comics in 1991).

This run of RSA consisted of issues 1-5, dated July, 1993 through November, 1993, after which Marc apparently decided he did not want to do RSA anymore. From the "NOW newsflash" section, and ads in other NOW titles, it is apparent RSA volume 5 was intended to be a 12 issue series.

In some later issues of other NOW Comics titles, NOW threatened to unveil a new series of RSA (presumably done by other writers and artists), at a time in Ralph's life where he was not insane anymore, but NOW ceased publishing forever in 1994, and the "new" RSA was never published. More information on that is here. It is unknown who (if anyone) owns the rights to RSA at this time, but Hansen certainly does not.

Each issue also came poly-bagged with trading card.

UPDATE: As of April, 2003, Marc Hansen regained all rights to Ralph Snart. The unpublished issues that were to be issues six and seven have been published on his web site. For more info...

UPDATE: All of volume 4, 5 and the unpublished issues of 5 were published in the Ralph Snart Adventures: Comic Collection #1 trade paperback, which was released in 2007.
