Jeff Hawke's Cosmos v.9 no.2
The three strips in the latest issue take the story from December 1981 to January 1983, so it's a substantial volume, as always. 'Time-Out' concerns time travel from a base near to the pyramids of Giza with Jeff finding himself in trouble in the matriarchal society of the 22nd century. 'Home Is The Sailor' begins with the disappearance of a honeymooning bride on Mars and continues with revelations of what happened to the lost Martian race. Finally, in 'Frozen Assets' Hawke faces genetically engineered soldiers planning to take over the planet using weapons hidden in space junk orbiting the Earth.
Rudling has plans to reprint a number of special volumes and may be adding to the publications list of the Jeff Hawke Club. Subscription rates are £26 for three issues here in the UK and £34/38/41 for overseas subscribers, payable in a variety of ways.
