Johnny, Wulf and the Gronk explore the hell dimension.
FIRSTS & LASTS
The City of Lost Souls is the First City of Hell. The rain on is burning liquid fire and reduces the skin of Human newcomers from other dimensions to green festering sores. One individual spent sixteen years being burned by the rain.
He, Wulf and the Gronk explore the new dimension they find themselves in and go in search of Fly's-Eyes Wagner. Johnny sees Wagner and shoots him. The rain burns his skin.
The rain burns his skin.
The rain burns its fur.
Johnny Alpha shoots and wounds him.
Wulf: "Listen! Veeping...and vailing - like many souls in torment!"
Johnny: "Some kind of hideous creatures! Their skin is just a mass of festering green sores."
Remember when Johnny judged someone purely on their appearance? No, me either.
Wulf says der, haf, vailing, ve, veeping and voork, Johnny says "My Dok!" and the Gronk pluralises gateses, wailings and weepings
CONTINUITY & CROSSOVERS
INFLUENCES & REFERENCES
The reprise of last week's cliffhanger is once again somewhat different, Johnny now thinks rather than says his final line, unless he is repeating it only for his own benefit.
Script: T.B. Grover
Letters: J. Aldrich
This is excellent and the cliffhanger resorts to extreme measures to shock: causing harm to the Gronk.
