A team of heroes for hire led by former Treasury agent Eric Redd rescue their wealthy, new next-door neighbors. The uncredited lead feature is just OK, but the Mike Mauser back-up by Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton is a treat.
The astronauts attack the vampires’ dome in a last-ditch effort to save their wives – but are they already too late? Awkward dialogue from John Albano pairs with decent art from Russ Heath to bring Planet of Vampires to a somewhat satisfying conclusion.
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.
When Hell comes under siege from the demon Brimstone, the Grim Ghost finds himself coming to the aid of Satan. A silly story from Tony Isabella – but not a bad one. The same can not be said for the art, a subpar outing from the usually talented Ernie Colón.
Stuntman Jeff Rand is forced to go into action as the Cougar when his brother – a werewolf! – attacks the set. This origin story, by the team of Gary Friedrich and Frank Springer, offers a great surprise ending.
On a stormy night, a young man hitches a ride from a vampire – and lives to tell the tale! The lead feature is one of four sub-par stories from the likes of Enrique Nieto, Dick Piscopo and, thankfully, Tom Sutton (who also crafted that excellent cover!)
Near golden arches in Gary, Indiana, Killraven and company battle the monstrous Devourer, as well as Atalon and the Sacrificer. Don McGregor and P. Craig Russell are hitting their stride as new material resumes.
Moro Frost “dies” in World War II, but the Scorpion lives on to battle the Golden Fuhrer in 1975. Not horrible, but this revamp by Gabriel Levy and Jim Craig pales in comparison to Howard Chaykin’s version of the Scorpion.
When a beautiful minstrel is maimed by jealous thieves, a secret paramour and sorceress team to save the future Ironjaw! This final issue – by the creative team of Gary Friedrich and Pablo Marcos – is less offensive but still lacks likability.
