Comments: Erik Farrell is twelve years old he is on the run and as he sleeps we get a glimpse of what he might be running from. Than we see exactly what he is running from. He should run faster.
Erik encounters Morgan Dwar of the Mermidonians. She is a beautiful green warrior.
Doctor Once now has Erik and others captured including Princess Thea. She is an insect type girl. She has an interesting look to her.
Erik is thrust into an area of combat. He decides to make a stand. Morgan joins him and so does Thea.
Erik's adventure is the stuff little boys dreams are made of. Only when it's real its a nightmare come to life.
This is a world both familiar and new. It is full of wondrous creatures. The adventure has just begun for Erik.
Whether you are a child or an adult you will love this comic.

Comments: Erik Farrell faces a horde of demonic looking creatures. Now they are taking him somewhere. The creatures homes are not what you might expect. Erik is made king of these monsters and he plans to use them. Erik is a twelve year old boy who knows what he wants and he plans to get it.
Kleef is a friend of Eric's and he is drawn as a monstrous creature with one big red claw.
Eric journeys to the Mercedes Patch. Kleef joins him and the monstrous creatures do as well. But most importantly Eric brings his stuffed teddy bear, Bear. On his journey which is a wondrous adventure filled with danger Eric finds one coolly designed ship with underwater travel. Eric seeks alias against Baalikar.
Morgan is a water dweller and one who is very unhappy with her life. She does not fit in and does not want to. Bur Eric knowing her gets him in with the water dwellers they become his aliases. He does seem to be gathering a lot of aliases. The lesson here is what one can not accomplish on there own many can.
Baalikar is a huge dragon and the evil in this story.
Somethings are not explained in this issue. You are expected to have read issues two and three to fully understand what is going on.
Eric is a young boy on the adventure of a lifetime. One you are lucky enough to join him on.

Comments: Baalikar one huge evil dragon faces Princess Thelandria. She is a warrior with no fear. Phaedrus and Morgan fight by her side. Baalikar also has many demonic looking creatures on his side.
Princess Thelandria is illustrated in a beautiful pin-up that brings across the fact she is a fighter. The colors are done wonderfully in it and you will love the pose.
Erik joins the fray attacking the dragon. You have got to see the drawings of this dragon in battle. It is visually stunning. The entire city is being leveled and the Queen is dying but the battle continues on. So many brave fighters here.
Erik with the help of his friends does fight on. He finds a lost friend as well. The one that had given him the courage and love to fight on against anything.
This is a world of magic and science filled wit wondrous beings. Erik the only living boy left may just be the most wondrous of them all.
