Synopsis: An unexpected revelation causes Ms. VICTORY to question her past as demons threaten the FF.Guest-Starring FIREBEAM and CAPTAIN FREEDOM.NIGHTVEIL triumphs over VIVARNA- but at what cost? Can RAD maintain “deep cover” without breaking into a federal facility, and STORMY TEMPEST plies the spaceways again. Plus- more ATOMIC BLONDE!!
Special Notes: This issue ships in a 4:1 ratio of standard Jacob Bear FIREBEAM cover design A, to a special Francesco Savi FF team cover design B. (Meaning that out of every FIVE copies of this book that are shipped, ONE will be a special Francesco Savi alternate design cover and FOUR will be the Jacob Bear standard cover at no additional cost.)
In a heartfelt attempt to solve the tragic mystery involving her good friend and colleague ROBERTA STROCK, Ms. VICTORY accidentally uncovers a thread that will lead to a major deconstruction of her OWN past, and the frightening possibility that an awful chapter of her life might not be closed. The mystic anomally called FIREBEAM acts as the conduit to “the other side” where secrets that perhaps were best LEFT hidden may be brought to light. Another gripping FF lead story written by Stephanie and Mark Heike, with art by Rock Baker and Jeff Austin. On Dhagor, the defeat of a powerful enemy and the end of a long struggle should be a time of great joy, but what if that is NOT the case? What if NIGHTVEIL is NOT the biggest hero in her greatest triumph? Find out in another chapter of this long-running saga written by Mark Heike with art by Dan Gorman. So far, RAD’s stint as an undercover infiltrator of the shadowy STRONG HAND organization has gone according to plan, but what happens when the Bad Guys’ plot could involve breaking countless Federal laws and being an accessory to tons of capital offenses? Can RAD participate and not be held accountable if the only contact that knows she’s actually a secret government operative is Tom Kelly? And that siren of the future spaceways STORMY TEMPEST is back, fighting her way through an assorted cadre of hideous alien B.E.M.’s with a new spacefaring pal in “Thrilling Science”, written by FF fan favorite scribe Mark Holmes. Finally, FF’s smash success guest-feature of 2016 (first seen in FEMFORCE #174), the ATOMIC BLONDE is BACK!! That’s right, Joseph Michaels and Dan Gorman’s atom-powered heroine of WWII returns to battle the Axis to her very last neutron in an all-new, never-before-seen story (drawn by Dan, written by Joe- but adding ace ink-slinger Scott Shriver to the creative team), AND an eye-popping Dan Gorman painted back cover!! The ‘BLONDE will again run as a flip-book feature back-to-back with the FF part of the issue with her own “cover” running on the back in flip-format fronting the AB portion of the issue. All this, plus a few more suprises will comprise FEMFORCE #177, the latest installment of the ongoing adventures of comicdom’s first and only successful, long-running all-female superteam. This issue will feature a SPECIAL variant cover design (shipping in a 4:1 ratio, meaning out of every FIVE copies of FF #177 shipped, FOUR will be the awesome and dramatic Jacob Beab FIREBEAM design, and one will the variant featuring a special FF group shot starring Ms. VICTORY, SHE-CAT, SYNN and STARDUST, as delineated by new discovery Francesco Savi.) So, if you want to be SURE to get BOTH cover variants, talk to your retailer about ordering enough copies of FF #177 to get them. FEMFORCE #177 will as usual be a full 80 pages; black and white with color covers, standard comic book size and saddle-stitched. Available at your local comic dealer in December for $9.95. Ordered it with your local comic book retailer out of the October 2016 issue of the Diamond Previews catalog.
