7/10 - Johnny Darkness
It's kind of odd that this was reprinted just a year after it came out. And that it claims to be a collector's item on the cover when it clearly isn't.
Good comic though.



Deathlok-lite... - Decanus
Michael Collins is a scientist working for Cybertek, on what he thinks is new cybernetic limbs for paraplegics. He discovers they are working on the DEathlok project, to create super-soldiers that can be controlled. Before he can expose this he is drugged, and his brain placed into the Deathlok body; however, through strength of will, he overrides the computer. Now trapped in this body, he needs to figure out what to do next...

I found this watered down Deathlok to be too tame. I found the set-up to be really heavy-handed, and the fact the main protagonist just happened to be a pacifist..the issue seemed rushed, with some quick family characterisation, shady boss and colleagues characterisation, then a shooting (which made little sense) and presto, a new Deathlok. Deathlok will always be visually interesting, but the new Deathlok -lite is just a riff on the old disfigured guy with a heart of gold (think Darkman). The Guice art was decent, as was the cover, but the scripting was workmanlike at best.
