Comment: A sexual abuse of Den reaches it’s end. Beth Corben is again as a co-colorist. Story of Corben’s own is poor (four extra pages do not give anything new for story), and colors have somehow lost their quality (specially on pages three to six). The love making scene on first page is extremely brilliant. Heavy Metal version has shorter story (there is no pages four to seven, except last row of frames of sixth page are on place of last row of thrid page). On first page all balloons and text boxes are radically in different places and logo totally different. On second page there is an interesting experimental technique: extranarrow frames (here letters) side by side to tighten tension. He uses similar technique in “A Sound of Thunder”.
