Axis Alpha

    (Axis, 1994)
™ and ©1994 Axis Comcs

Axis Alpha is a sampler of titles from Axis Comics, circa 1994. Javier Saltares delivers B.E.A.S.T.I.E.S., an X-flavored supergroup. Beau Smith and Jim Callahan’s DethGrip features a bitchin’ freelancer with big muscles and firearms. Gene Ha’s fine artwork graces Todd Johnson’s Shelter, a supersecret agency of superspecialists laced with conspiracy-theory overtones. Fans of artist Neal Adams will have fun identifying panels that artist Larry Stroman swiped in illustrating Johnson’s Tribe, about an outside-the-law armored mercenary. Brian McDonald and Brian O’Connell offer credible storytelling and distinctive artwork for the final feature, W, another jumpsuit-wearing, gun-toting private security expert.
