Synopsis: Dumog used to be an ogre. Mistress Mortana spelled him back to man with a revenge to transform his beloved Byrna as ugly ogre instead. A living carcass talks Dumog round to kill Mistress to reverse everything like they were. Rotten head promises that Dumog will be a handsome prince.
Comment: The rerun of "Ogre [I]" story is a little bit useless. Graphically story is brilliant, but the story does not give anything new or interesting. The first story was made in a photo collage technique and Mr. Corben wanted originally to do the same with this sequel, but he had to forget that idea. Mistress Mortana has a great resemblance with sexy Horrilor. Back to human form transformed Byrna looks like a model Karen Gibertson, who Mr. Corben used a lot.
