Issue Review

I don't enjoy stories like this, ones where nothing actually happens and the hero merely fights some internal demon. Acceptable as a back-up story in an annual, maybe, but I really don't enjoy them as the 'main feature'. 3/10

  I hate lying covers. I know it's standart now but 1974? That cover made my inner child cry.

  Thank The Lord this is over with. Hopefully, Hellstrom won't appear for a while...a long while.

  I think what amazed me the most that issue is that it made sense. For all the mind(&$%ery that was going on it was reasonably easy to follow, and I have to give credit to Gerber for that.
So are the cops just going to let him go now, after they were trying to kill him last issue? That would be a little awkward.

  Yeah, this was a weird arc, even by Steve Gerber standards, and I'm glad it's done. I'm still not sure how Madame Swabada was able to make such a formidable opponent and possess Daimon, but do those appearances by Satana and Ghost Rider really count if they're in a dream sequence?

2 stars. The one time I faced my inner demons, we simply had a dance-off. Maybe that's what Daimon needs....

  That was trippy, but cool. Kind of Dr Strange but with added fire.
