I really like the house in the background here. Lots of detail, nice texture, and really a good example of the Kirby/Royer combo. Royer’s display lettering is also interesting. It’s really unique, I don’t think I’ve seen anyone else from that era doing such display lettering in the era.
Another single issue story in a more conventional mode, not referencing the Fourth World background much at all (except a funny brief scene of Barda and some of the Furies). Scott and Oberon are wandering around and see a bunch of monsters capturing another creature, taking him back to “Satan’s Lair”. They follow, coming across an old house run by Madame Evil Eyes. Various death traps are encountered before Scott realizes that the whole “Satan Club” is a cover for a ring of hijackers specializing in high-tech inventions. Not a bad story, but every time I read something from this stretch of Mister Miracle I can’t help but see how far it falls from what Kirby clearly wanted to do with the series just a year earlier.
Mike Royer inks the 23-page story and cover.
