This Charlton house magazine from Bob Layton’s CPL/Gang Publications features The Question by Roger Stern, Michael Uslan and Alex Toth, and Doomsday +1 from John Byrne. If only Charlton’s regular lineup was that good!
Wulf joins forces with the Free Swordsmen’s Guild to save the city of Rama-Kesh from a magically induced drought. Another surprisingly strong outing from the Atlas (Seaboard) team of Larry Hama and Klaus Janson.
Bad science and other silliness undermine what should have been a promising superhero anthology. Only the Neal Adams cover and some above-average Batman art from Michael (Nasser) Netzer save this one from being a total stinker.
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.
