After the climatic ending that saw Travis Morgan defeat his arch-nemesis Deimos last issue, you would think this book would pick right up after those events, and yet, it does not.  Instead, after fifty issues, Mike Grell thought it would be smart to give new readers a refresher on just who and what our hero is about and so the first issue of the series which featured Morgan and Tara’s origin is reprinted.  While it was fine to do as such, for those hoping to see what would come next would be out of luck and it was a bit of a downer no matter how good that first issue was.  Also in this book would be the start of a new backup feature entitled Dragonsword which was not half-bad.  While it was good overall, the inclusion of a talking monkey ruined the seriousness that the story started off on and gave the book a whole different tone after that point.  All in all, a bit of a disappointing issue.
