The menace of WAMPYR and CIANOSE DJAB has been building within the pages of FEMFORCE since issue #158, and as things begin to unravel, one villain turns against the other, with perhaps all of humanity caught in the crossfire. Will the FF need to lean on an old friend to tip the balance, or a former enemy? Everyone in media today is doing vampires or zombies- leave it to AC to find a new “take” on things. After the extra-length FF lead feature, return to the halcyon days of America’s Wild West with The BLACK PHANTOM, as the black-hatted former desparado must come up with a way to stop TWO badhats with only ONE bullet, in “Wanted…Dead”; scripted by Mark Holmes, with art by Seth Bunke. In the present, SYNN teams up with an extremely unlikely partner under extremely unlikely circumstances in “Just Synn Time”, written by Mark Holmes. Then, the futuristc peacekeeper known as STORMY TEMPEST runs a terrifying gauntlet in a Frank Tra- written epic titled “The Maze”, and Ms. VICTORY is reminded that loyalty and bravery are qualities that can be passed down from generation to generation, and that virtue
trully IS it’s own reward. All this plus a number of other surprise features!! Other stories written by Bill Black, Mark and Stephanie Heike and Eric Johnson, with art by Rock Baker, Scott larson, Manuel Diaz, Riccardo Dessini. Jeff Austin, Scott Shriver and Mark Dail. This issue ships with TWO different cover options- a “standard” She-Cat fighting solo cover version by comics and animation great Will Meugniot, and a special She-Cat and Nightveil design (celebrating the duo’s “return” to the FF group) by Mark G.
