FIRSTS & LASTS
First work on Flesh by Felix Carrion and both the first and last work by J. Swain.
Anti-Matter Launchers are used for ballistic explosions. Plasticrete is a building material.
The huge spiders are blind and attracted by sound.
Claw locks him in with the spiders. He uses a sound recorder to fool them and escape.

OLD ONE EYE
She and thousands of other carnivorous dinosaurs break through the third defence line around the base.
He locks Reagan in a room with the spiders and uses anti-matter launchers to kill them.
Dozens. A spider kills a dreaming ranger, while Claw and Joe kill both spiders and Styracosaurs as the former swarm over the latter.
Claw Carver: "Believe me, Joe...it wasn't an easy decision...but we couldn't risk the spiders coming through..Listen...it's all gone quiet in the bunk room...the spiders got Reagan!...Reagan's courage will be remembered!"
Dreamer: "Boy! What a wonderful dream I'm having!"
CONTINUITY & CROSSOVERS
INFLUENCES & REFERENCES
'The Yellow Rose Of Texas' is a traditional American folk song first published in 1858 and apparently written by a J.K.
Script: Studio Giolitti
Artist: Felix Carrion
Letters: J. Swain
The brilliantly named Felix Carrion wrote three episodes of Flesh.
As far as I can tell J. Swain only lettered this strip.
As the spiders take over this begins to feel like a completely different strip, but they quite literally make Flesh crawl.
