A local police chief wants the Brute dead. Wait. No. No, he doesn’t. Oh. Stop. Yes, he does. Also: supervillain. This final issue is a mess of stereotypes masquerading as a story, from the team of Gary Friedrich, Alan Weiss and Jack Abel.
After a brilliant rabbi biochemist fails to help Morbius, the living vampire clashes with a demon-priest. Though Morbius’ Fear debut isn’t that well executed, Mike Friedrich and Paul Gulacy’s work with the character shows potential.
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.
Linda “Supergirl” Danvers moves to San Francisco to start a new job – unfortunately, with Lex Luthor’s niece in tow. Writer/artist Mike Sekowsky brings some Marvel-style continuity to the maid of might.
Killraven and the Freemen celebrate with new friends, sharing the story of Old Skull over a New Year’s feast. A catch-your-breath issue from the regular Killraven team of Don McGregor and P. Craig Russell, this time joined by veteran inker Jack Abel.
Three gift-bearing aliens who are following a distant star crash land on Earth, and the Justice League battles Major Macabre. A decent story with a lame villain, from the team of Gerry Conway, Dick Dillin and Frank McLaughlin.
The Freeman fight to save Carmilla Frost from a strange creature who lives for just 24 hours and must procreate. An off-putting outing from regular Killraven writer Don McGregor with art by P. Craig Russell, Keith Giffen and Jack Abel.
When Cobra kidnaps a nuclear scientist, an elite counter-terrorist strike force – code-named G.I. Joe – is sent to the rescue. Unfortunately, this debut issue – from the team of Larry Hama, Herb Trimpe and Bob McLeod – is in need of some help itself.
The High Overlord is called before a forum of Martian masters to review an earlier debacle against the rebel Killraven. A lovely new framing sequence from artist P. Craig Russell almost makes up for this slapdash repackaging of a contemporary reprint. Almost.
Killraven and crew cross paths with Volcana Ash before coming under attack from the Death Breeders. Don McGregor welcomes key collaborator P. Craig Russell and the War of the Worlds will never be the same.
