Coerced by the Corporation, swashbuckler Donovan Flint has no choice but to join in the search for an ancient artifact. A surprisingly flat story by David Michelinie, with inconsistent but potential-laden art from the team of Don Newton and Bob Layton.
Contrary to its striking cover, this issue actually features three unconnected – and largely uninspired – tales featuring Batman, Aquaman and the Legion of Super-Heroes. From creative talent including Gerry Conway, Paul Levitz, Don Newton and others.
Series host Colonel Whiteshroud explains the Monster Hunters Club to the visiting Countess Von Bludd. While a better debut than sister series Scary Tales, this first issue by the likes of Nicola Cuti, Joe Staton, Wayne Howard and others lacks any real creative spark.
