While Ragman battles various thugs, blind/mute orphan Teddy brings the missing-money mystery to a fiery close. Co-creators Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert team on this excellent series finale.
A team of heroes for hire led by former Treasury agent Eric Redd rescue their wealthy, new next-door neighbors. The uncredited lead feature is just OK, but the Mike Mauser back-up by Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton is a treat.
The Invisible Girl returns home to find the FF defeated by a golden-haired man – a strangely familiar golden-haired man. John Byrne follows up his three-part Galactus epic with a powerful solo outing starring Susan Richards.
A pair of short stories from regular Ragman writer Bob Kanigher. The first one, illustrated by the Redondo Studio, is a bit hurried, but the wordless backup story, featuring art by co-creator Joe Kubert, is quite masterful.
Starfire gets involved in a whirlwind romance – one that takes a tragic turn thanks to The H.I.V.E. A strong, character-driven issue from The New Teen Titans creative team of Marv Wolfman and George Pérez. Also: The debut of Captain Carrot.
Rom ally – and potential love interest – Brandy Clark prepares to wed the Dire Wraith who secretly replaced her fiancé. This above-average issue from the regular Rom creative team of Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema moves the series forward.
Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers destroy an enemy hive world – but evil Insecton survivors flee to Earth! Comics legend Jack Kirby helps usher in the post-Bronze era with this creator-owned epic from Pacific Comics.
As Travis Morgan brawls in a tavern, Mariah and Machiste reminisce about their previous adventures with the Warlord. A nice character-building issue from series creator Mike Grell.
When a mute, blind orphan witnesses a murder, local thugs again come to blows with Ragman. Another excellent offering from Robert Kanigher and the Redondo Studio, though the art is better executed than the story this time out.
Rom is attacked by the Mad Thinker’s android while a backup tale sheds some light on an earlier spaceknight battle. A odd-and-uninspired pair of stories from the regular Rom creative team of Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema.
