Story & art by Victor de la Fuenta, originally serialized in the European magazine A SUIVRE. De la Fuenta was (and still is) a well-respected Spanish illustrator whose works spanned decades. His realistic style was quite similar to Al Williamson.
Fore the most part, the stories here are much more mature than those of the earlier issues but still doesn’t come close to the quality of higher-end comic mags like Heavy Metal.
