Synopsis: Aliens land to witness (through reporter's magnetofone) the end of the deserted Earth. A King Kong releated story tells how a girl is born as three months old as an healthy newborn. She keeps on growing and growing until she is higher than blockhouse. And she keeps on growing.
Comment: Bruce Jones's story is brilliant. Corben's color artwork is brilliant as well. Alien parts of the story are B&W (one page Prologue and an Epilogue, which depends on version, is one/two/three pages). The interest of the gigantic girl grows with the story (till the tragic end).
Alternatives [three versions]: There is three different version of this story - 10, 11 and 12 pgs. Versions differs from each others in the Epilogue: is the original version and it has got only one page Epilogue (first two frames are missing and the final frame is in the end of page). In the first Epilogue page is same as in the vers. 3, but the final frame is vertically on the next (11th) page. has got two extra frames (stolen from page one!) in the beginning of Epilogue page and the final frame is enlarged and cropped (!) as a spread on two next pages.
Alternatives, : Restored with piety by José Villarrubia.
Special (): The artwork of Heavy Metal Specials versions has been reproduced NOT from the American magazine! On a bottom of the second page is writing "SCENARIO: BRUCE JONES DESSIN: RICH CORBEN." Story itself is prob. relettered, though the title (on pg 2) looks like typed. The scanning quality is pretty poor.
