After being damaged by Hellinger’s explosive, Deathlok is rebuilt by the CIA and sent back on the hunt for Ryker. The creative team of Rich Buckler, Bill Mantlo and Klaus Janson serve up a visually striking story that’s overstuffed with plot elements.
Looking to improve efficiency, Santa adopts the elves’ plan to utilize a new computer that’s “never wrong.” Uh oh. Strong cartooning from longtime DC humor-artist Sheldon Mayer anchors a fun seasonal package.
The Assassin targets Captain America – just the first step in a plot to take down all of the Avengers. The first of two surprisingly strong fill-in issues by Tony Isabella, with less-than-exceptional art from Don Heck and John Tartaglione.
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.
Three members of the Moonbase Alpha crew join with other captives in an attempt to escape an intergalactic zoo. Nicola Cuti story is fun, but early John Byrne artwork is this Charlton comic’s real draw.
The Doomsday +1 team continues to look for other survivors – only to find themselves fighting for their lives once again! A subpar outing from the creative team of Joe Gill and John “Byrne Robotics” Byrne.
On the anniversary of his parents’ murder, Batman visits Crime Alley – and the kind woman who comforted the orphaned Bruce Wayne. A strong if simple story from legendary Batwriter Denny O’Neil, with gorgeous art from Dick Giordano.
