Morgan and Shakira are flying by on their pegasus when they come across a ship being attacked by a sea monster.  Morgan rushes to their aid and when all is said and done, one of the people on the boat turns out to be his daughter Jennifer, come from the surface world in search of her dad.  What follows is an attack and a reunion with some men upon the beach, a little heart to heart with Jennifer recalling his adventures and a revelation from the man that accompanied her to Skartaris.  This was a pretty good issue from Mike Grell that never failed to entertain as well as expanded Morgan’s world with the introduction of a family member.  The tale is a quick one with a lot of action and a little intrigue thrown in, not to mention some dramatic moments between father and daughter.  Now that another character has been added into the mythos that is Travis Morgan, hopefully, Jennifer will come back and play a larger part in her father’s life.  This book also featured a second story starring OMAC by Jim Starlin that continued off of last issue with the One Man Army Corps facing off against the corporate forces of IC&C.  OMAC tries to surrender and then prove he wants to join up with their forces, to which they agree, but both OMAC and IC&C have something up their respective sleeves.  At this point, being only the second chapter in, the OMAC story is fairly interesting. Starlin’s art looks fantastic and the story is good enough that you want to see where it leads.  While both features in the book are are done quite well, the lead story is the better of the two.
