Comment: Another early computer artwork by Corben. There is again problem with image resolution. This time Corben tries to draw some figures with computer – not very effective result. Artwork contains a lot not successful computer generated backgrounds. The result with naked female bodies are much better. This time there is text and artwork in separate files like they suppoused to be (texts are clear and sharp). Story by Richard Margopoulos is not very interesting.
