In a storyline that continues from the one-shot Reddevil comic released several months earlier, the Femforce is face-to-face with a modern version of the greatest anti-hero of the Golden Age of comics, Lev Gleason’s The Claw! Magically brought to life out of Reddevil’s memory, The Claw has amassed a gang of thugs , losers and tiny winged demons; and working out of a suddenly-active volcano, is picking up his plot for world domination right where he left off fifty years ago. And the only answer to defeating him is to be found in… a vintage comic book? “In The Clutches Of The Claw, Part II”, is written by Bill Black, drawn by Dick Ayers, and inked by Mark Heike. It guest stars Miss Masque, The Avenger, Yankee Girl, Darkfire, Dr. Jonathan Weir, Catman and Kitten and Crimebuster. Then, the strange tendril-filled house that trapped Nightveil last issue has snagged Dragonfly- and only by changing back to Nancy Arazello can she escape. But what do those tendrils have to do with the death of Jason Burke, wonders Buckaroo Betty, and how can her late father, The Haunted Horseman, help solve the mystery? This untitled story is written by Bill Black, drawn by Dick Ayers, and inked by Chad Hunt and Mark Heike. Color photo cover of Sharon Blair as Synn; interiors are black and white with graytones. Standard comic book format. Printed in 1992.
