With the help of computer tapes, Nicodemus regains his memories and once again schemes to become the Sorcerer Supreme. A solid, done-in-one story from Chris Claremont gets strong art support from the team of Marshall Rogers and P. Craig Russell.
With Angel and Spider-Man devolved into primordial creatures, it’s up to Ka-Zar and Karl “Sauron” Lykos to save the day. (Yeah, that sounds like it’ll end well.) Chris Claremont, Micheal Golden and others team on another good-but-not-amazing issue of Marvel Fanfare.
Spider-Man, Angel and Daredevil help the House of Ideas launch Marvel Fanfare, an upscale foray aimed at comics’ emerging Direct Market. While featuring some fantastic art from the likes of Michael Golden and Paul Smith, this debut issue’s stories fall a bit flat.
