Comments: Malcolm is surrounded by Demonoids of all sizes. One huge one has him. Malcolm just has attitude for them.
In the fore ground is one nude female demonoid with one gorgeous figure and her butt is drawn perfectly.
Malcolm is not alone Special Operations Strikeforce there leader is a gorgeous Wonder Woman look alike called Angel. The demonoids invade Earth, now the art focuses on the demonoids more than the super-heroes.
The battle is over to soon and it could have had more focus in it on the individual fights.
Maxine is drawn cute and sexy. Dragon or Malcolm is drawn in one exciting action packed pose when he leaps into action.
The backup story stars Vanguard in "Broken Home" written by Gary Carlson, art by Frank Fosco, colors by David Branstetter, letters by Adam Pruett and cover colors by Courtland Brugger. Vanguard has one woman Modem on his side who is strong and definitely in love. She is shown as a deadly woman.

Comments: This comic is a huge 100 pages long.
Malcolm and Maxine move in together. She is one cute and sexy girl. Well Angel joins them and a threesome does happen. Malcolm is one lucky guy.
Dragon is depowered still and Angel and Malcolm do find him and we are treated to a huge brawl with the Vicious Circle's members.
The story well is kind of haphazard it jumps around and never really focuses. The art well it needs more than a sex babe in it. The fight scenes are boring. The poses need to be more powerful and show the super-heroes as heroes.
"Flash Mercury" Written by Joe Keatinge, art by Ryan Alexander Tanner and colors by Rodgers and Pruett. This short story makes no sense. The art is ok but nothing special.
There is one nice pin-up by Fiffe of the major Image characters including Dragon. It is lightly colored.
"Out of Time" Story/inks by Erik Larsen, pencils by Herb Trimpe, colors by Bill Crabtree and letters by Ferran Delgado. Here Dragon teams with his son Malcolm. This is how Dragon was meant to be drawn. They are batling Nazi's. After a battle against enemy soldiers what is best well going out for ice cream of course.
"Conquering Heroes!" Story by Erik Larsen, art by Chris Burnham, colors by Dylan McCrae and letters by Ferran Delgado. Mr. Glum and Angel team-up and they are conquering Dimension X. Mr. Glum is a great character, he is a villain but you kind of like him.
"End Zone!" Story by Erik Larsen, art by Travis Sengaus, colors by Bill Crabtree and letters by F. Delgado. A friendly game of football turns into a life and death battle for Malcolm. Critical Mass is illustrated nicely, the colors on him stand out.
"Taken" Story by Eric Larsen, pencils/colors by Nikos Koutsis, inks/flats by Mike Toris and letters by Ferran Delgado. We have a plethora of super-heroes here fighting trolls. Among the battle true love is found. Aw a happy ending.
Mike Perkins delivers a beautifully illustrated black and white pin-up of Dragon. He is jumping into action.
"Flash Mercury" Story by Joe Keatinge and art by Ryan Alexander-Tanner. Bounce bounces around here and makes Flash Mercury an offer. Bounce is drawn in some great poses.
"The Contest!" Story/pencils by Eric Larsen, inks by Herb Trimpe, colors by Nikos Koutsis and Mike Toris and letters by Ferran Delgado. Mr. Glum you can not help but feel sorry for him. Well until you see him in bed with Angel. Lucky guy.
"Bad Hair Day!" Story by Gavin Higginbotham, layout by Ron Frenz, pencils/inks/colors by Scott James, color flats by Mike Toris and letters by Adam Pruett. Wow we are greeted with one insane looking woman with living hair as this story starts. Wildhair is stopped by Lightning Bug. A villain takes the first step to becoming a hero. The art is a bit gritty. Wildhair is a great character and her personality makes for a great villain.
"Daredevil" Daredevil is drawn in some good poses using his boomerang. Here we see things are not always as they seem. The art could have shown off the background characters better. Having Daredevil in full color and the rest not does make him stand out the most.
"Weird Science" Written by Gary Carlson, art by Frank Fosco, colors by David Branstetter & Courtland Brugger, letters by Adam Pruett. Vanguard is upset. This story is really hard to follow. The art is good but could have been used better.
"Savage Dragonbert and Hitler's Brainbert. By Karl H. This story makes no sense. The art is simple and not much detail to it.
"Desperate Times" By Chris Eliopoulos. Not much to this the art is cute but the story makes no sense.
"Flash Mercury" By Joe Keatinge and Ryan Alexander-Tanner. Poor Flash he just has no luck. He is drawn as a cute character though.
Funnies are comic strips that are slightly funny.
This is one huge collection. You will be entertained for quite some time.
