Synopsis: Henry finds a cube that distorts time. Cube is a game; always when Henry plays it (he wants to beat the cube), time leaps years, wars appears and he does not grow older at all. Cube is an alien lifeform, who came to Earth to deal with time and history.
Comment: Jack Butterworth's Hellraiser related story is interesting. Corben's color artwork is good, just good. There is one excellent frame (first on last page), dark but effective.
Alternatives, : Poorly scanned from magazine.
Extra: The Vampire Archieve version was resored partly from the original art plates (5 paltes were used).
