As Patrick Slade is held at knife-point by the South African soldier, Gore, he reflects upon how he discovered that the Black Panther’s mother was still alive. Unfortunately for Slade, the Black Panther cannot react quickly enough to save him from the blade – now covered in his blood.

Coldblood in “Rise and Shine” part 5

Coldblood-7 finds sanctuary at a Las Vegas brothel while, back at the complex, Mako accuses Gina of helping Coldblood escape and subdues her. Given safety and time, Coldblood asks the computer to reveal his past to him. He learns that he is Eric Savin, a Lieutenant-Colonel in the U.S. Army and that the fake city he escaped from was a training ground for super-soldier cyborgs like him. The program was unwittingly funded by the U.S. Government for the mad scientist, Mako. And, the cyber-surgeon behind all of this was Gina Dyson – the woman who has now, in her guilt, given aid to Coldblood so he can shut the whole thing down.

Leir in “The Temper Of A God…
written by Sue Flaxman
art by Tom Morgan

An intruder has disturbed the peaceful autumn morning on Avalon and it’s up to Leir, the Celtic Lord of Lightning and God of the Spear, to dispatch the troll. Dagda, the God of the Druids, claims that the Fomorians sent the troll to test the Celtic gods. So, to teach them a lesson, Leir and Caber (the God of Bards) invade the Fomorians’ camp. But, Dagda intervenes before Leir can kill the rival tribe. The Lord of Lightning, it seems, has a lot to learn about mercy.
