Here, have some OMAC. In Italian.

O.M.A.C.! It stands for (if you follow the Kirby definition, and why would you follow any other?) One Man Army Corps. But in a future without national boundaries, that solo fighting guy with the big-ass mohawk might be known as different acronyms. For example, in Italy, let's call him UUAB! (Pronounced oo-abb.) Un Uomo Armato Battaglione! Mmmm, I think I had one of those after my spaghetti and meatballs down at Aunt Suzie's Italian restaurant last week. Oh, let's just continue to call him O.M.A.C. for copyright sake. Signor O.M.A.C.

Panels from Classici DC: OMAC trade paperback (Planeta DeAgostini, 2007), Italian translation by Margherita Galetti, Italian lettering by Silvia Romano; originally printed as OMAC #1 (September-October 1974), script and pencils by Jack Kirby, inks and letters by Mike Royer, colors by Jerry Serpe

Now that's a passionate, romantic version of OMAC! Be sure to join us here next time for "Here, have some Mister Miracle. In Norwegian."

Until then, always remember!:

I went to high school with Armato Battaglione.
