Axis Alpha

 AXIA   (Axis, 1994)

ô 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 Callahanís DethGrip features a bitchiní freelancer with big muscles and firearms. Gene Haís fine artwork graces Todd Johnsonís 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 Johnsonís Tribe, about an outside-the-law armored mercenary. Brian McDonald and Brian OíConnell offer credible storytelling and distinctive artwork for the final feature, W, another jumpsuit-wearing, gun-toting private security expert.
