The FEMFORCE rarely deals in “all-out action issues”, but this edition of the long-running FF series heads in that direction, as one-time FF member, sometimes- villainess and daughter of team leader MS. VICTORY, RAD finds herself accidentally pulled into the long-running WAMPYR/CIANOSE DJAB storyline while trying to be a responsible “good samaratin”. One thing leads to another, and before you know it, she’s in a donnybrooke with most of the FEMFORCE team. Meanwhile, SHE-CAT; STILL trying to avoid the ire of Ms. VICTORY over SYNN’s romp on the West Coast in FF #163 has talked her way into yet ANOTHER solo mission in a remote location. This time, it’s the mysterious region known as The Dawn World, where ‘Cat must contend with both prehistoric and antidelluvian menaces AND the cat-diety known as BAST. This story guest-stars CAVE GIRL, THUN’DA and PHA, and is written and drawn by the multi-talented Eric Coile. After decades apart( for various reasons) NIGHTVEIL and her love Dan (The BLACK COMMANDO) Barton have finally been reunited. With unlimited resources and virtually all of time and space before them, their lives together SHOULD be idyllic- but seeds sown this issue may lead to the greatest adventure that either of these characters has ever faced. ROWENA, the gentle giantess returns, in a story written by R’s creator, Eric Lindberg, and drawn by a talented AC newcomer, Seth Bunke!! She-Cat makes a return appearance in yet another solo outing- and wait’ll you see WHERE it takes place!!Finally, after last issue’s short “teaser”, interplanetary trouble-shooter STORMY TEMPEST is back, in a feature-length story that harkens to her live-action, Galaxy International/CultRetro video adventures.
