A rogue hero prowls the midnight skyline of San Francisco, searching out and eradicating the darkness of man. His name: VICTIM. Meanwhile, wealthy young Casey Lockley is a magnet for trouble. Every time he steps outside, he’s witness to a mugging, a police shooting or worse. But his luck may have changed, as he suddenly finds himself stalked by a beautiful, mysterious woman. Nearby, spiked mandroid Deathborg unleashes his anti-human rage in a hail of automatic bullets. Victim emerges from the fog and chaos to bring this automated murder machine to its steel knees. Can Deathborg be destroyed? How does Casey fit in? These and many other questions will be addressed in the next issue, titled “The False Egg.”

After a botched mob hit leaves two cars decimated and exploded, lanky youngster Samual (not my “a”) Gamble is just a moment too late to save the day. A bloodied woman lies dying crushed between the wreckage and before uttering her last breath, she gives Gamble a secret briefcase containing a mysterious glowing egg. Gamble suits up as “Port” - a teleporting super hero that can pass through solid matter - to learn about the egg from his informant buddies. However, one teleport in the wrong direction leaves Port face to face with a nameless villan agent, metallic samurai warrior and a cliffhanger ending to issue #1. Apple 2GS computer lettering, primitive artwork and the distintive front-cover colored border are all characteristic of Silver Wolf’s charm - even the cigarette burn on my issue’s cover.
