There’s a new boss for the Femforce-General Robert Gordon. (He first showed up in the Armageddon Factor mini series.) His first order is an old directive-capture the unstable Rad. Meanwhile, the paranormal in question is keeping a low profile, while cooking up a scheme to raise cash. Using the skills she gained during Joan Wayne’s career as a bio-geneticist, she modifies the V-45 that gives her super-power into a youth serum that she plans to peddle to the desparate (but old and wealthy) rich. When an “old friend” tips off the FF to Rad’s locale, they go in swinging- backed up by the former members of The Sentinels of Justice this time. After a city-trashing battle, it looks as if Rad is in the hands of the authorities. But, is it a real victory? “Cold Turkey” is plotted by James Misson, with a script by Rik Levins, and pencils by Levins and Brad Gorby (his first assignment for AC Comics) and inks by Jim Sanders III. Guest-starring Captain Tom Kelly, Paragon, Commando D, The Scarlet Scorpion, and Astron. Then, in “I, The Kitty”, a solo She-cat is primed for action in what looks like a dark, gritty film-noir detective story-but when the tale takes a turn for the mundane, ‘Cat lashes out at the creators. Story and art by Jordi(Batman Beyond)Ensign and Chris Allen. Plus, part 4 of A Conversation With Bill Black, by Leo Laney. Full color cover by Mark Heike, interiors are black and white with graytones. Standard comic book format. Printed in 1989.
