Morlock flees from dystopic authorities and a greedy mob, turns a rail gang into fungus, then eats a couple people. This ‘70s pop-culture mash-up from writer Michael Fleisher continues, with some above-average art support from Al Milgrom.
A prehistoric sub-human frozen in ice emerges eons later to bring death and destruction to a Minnesota town. A stinker of a debut from the usually interesting talents of Michael Fleisher and Mike Sekowsky.
The spider priestess Rak-Nora escapes from “astral disintegration” and seeks her revenge on the Tarantula. Another enjoyable issue of Weird Suspense, featuring a so-so script by Micheal Fleisher and interesting art by Pat Boyette.
Double-crossed by a cult, Vietnam veteran Gideon Cross must try to stop xenogenesis – the rebirth of the demon race! The story is a bit hard to warm up to, but the visual storytelling by Rich Buckler is a lot of fun.
A second group of aliens stop Phoenix’s suicide attempt, turn him into the Protector and send him to battle a cyclops. A victim of the dreaded Atlas-(Seaboard)-last-issue revamp, this outing by the new creative team of Gary Friedrich and Ric Estrada is pretty much a bust.
Phoenix tries to save a village from a yeti army controlled by Satan – who is actually an alien in disguise! The lead story by Gabriel Levy and Sal Amendola is a bit off, but a backup feature with nice art from Pat Broderick and Terry Austin brings up this issue’s average.
After learning the alien threat still lives, Phoenix races to New York to stop the annihilation of the city. Heavy with Biblical allusions, this series, by artist Sal Amendola and new writer Gabriel Levy, still has potential.
