This tryptic of episodic sci-fi/fantasy character pieces rages out of the gate with ”ESCAPE FROM THE CITY” featuring Ragne Ness’ jaw-dropping illustrations. What follows is 8-pages of meticulous perfection featuring the mohawk muscler Damlog - a fugitive of the future with the Woblac Police on his tale - who was subject of his own Pyramid Comics one-shot. ”SPARTAN - DEVASTATOR REX” follows a inter-dimensional barbarian which adds a clunky mid-section to the book with zzzzz-inducing artwork. The closing story “AKLON - LAST OF THE BLUE TREE ELVES” about an abandoned elf turned champion deity rounds out the book with some head-scratchingly frustrated art. -EH
