    Some fairly interesting ideas brought into play in this issue, as we get a pretty solid look at how long the Weapon Plus program has been in operation, and we also learn the identity of a couple of it's past experiments, with the identity of Weapon I being a fairly unexpected revelation.

    Still, Id like to look at the future and see this as a means rather than an end, and hope Mr. Morrison has better things in store for us. Only eight issues left Read Full Review
