A deeply home-cooked anthology showcasing the wildly unique talents of the mysterious Peretti family. The first story, Daydreamers, explores the chronicle of an indestructible sword called Mankiller. A young warrior from the magical medieval land of Utope is assaulted by the henchmen of evil three-eyed Oculus Treis. Our hero awakens thousands of years later as a human vigilante in a mechanized society. He’s confronted by a robot guard that says: “No personal aloud out after curfew!” Someone hand that android a goddamn dictionary. Next up is a nine page adventure starring the Cosmic Force of America Team, a group of four firemen who are transformed into elemental superheroes by a space beam: “Maybe the Air Force can help us if we turn ourselfs in!” Last is All American, in which a pinstriped crimefighter beats two thugs into a coma: “Whoe! Cool it man!” The back cover promises that issue # 2 will be on sale the last week of September. But which September?! We’re waiting!! -ZC
