The Vibe Piper of Empire City

"The Vibe Piper of Empire City" from C.O.P.S. #3 (DC, 1988) by Doug Moench, Bart Sears and Pablo Marcos
C.O.P.S. (Central Organization of Police Specialists) was a comic book tie-in with a toy line and cartoon series, which managed to last 15 issues thanks to writer Doug Moench, and in the case of those issues I picked up, covers and sometimes interiors by Pat Broderick. The series also featured early DC work from Bart Sears who would go on to put his stamp on Justice League Europe and later, Eclipso, before moving on to Valiant. This kind of book must be the most thankless kind of assignment - they're not all going to be G.I. Joe or Transformers - but making it last more than a year deserves some respect at least.
