Comment: Beautiful beginning for Solo comic book. Interesting fresh story telling and excellent black line art work. Surprisingly the girl is more stiffer figure than any of men. Very good colors and sandy architecture. The story structure reminds “The Dweller in the Dark”.
Scanned from Spanish print. Apparently similar with the original English print.
