Black Hawk: The Intergalactic Gladiator.
Black Hawk and Battak fight Ursa and Zog.
FIRSTS & LASTS
Silversun is half a galaxy or more from Earth.
When Ursa and Zog attack, he tries to defend himself. Ursa defeats him and he crawls to a nearby cave to take refuge. He is carried deeper underground by an army of tiny winged creatures.
When Ursa and Zog attack, he fights back with his claws. Zog bludgeons him with his club.
He and Zog attack Black Hawk and Battak in a trance-like state. Following their fall through a time-hole, they are under the influence of the Great Beast.
He and Ursa attack Black Hawk and Battak in a trance-like state. Following their fall through a time-hole, they are under the influence of the Great Beast.
Ursa: "Then Beast magic us. Him say-"
Cuts to the chase.
Ursa: "We better remember. This plenty important..."
In one panel we hear all three catchphrases of our heroes as Ursa threatens "Chop-Chop!", Black Hawk exclaims "Sebek's blood!" and Zog unsurprisingly says "Zog!". In total, Zog says his name seven times and Ursa Chop-Chops twice.

The fight sequence is great and the flashback explains Ursa and Zog's surprise antipathy toward Black Hawk and Battak, but refreshingly they keep their personality and demeanour.
