Nemesis The Warlock
Story:The Grand Master calls an assembly of all his forces and allies to claim that he Warlock is destroyed. But the dead Nemesis was an ectoplasmic duplicate designed to keep Torquemada occupied while Nemesis and the ABC Warriors board his flagship. They take the flagship controls and manage to destroy the Termight fleet. Nemesis forces has seized the ship, and now the arch deviant turns his attention towards an escaping Torquemada (5 pages).
Comments:We learn more about the two new warriors in this strip. Hitaki had been built by the Black Dragon Kai, a secret society dedicated to restore the Japanese empire, and he was programmed to act like the samurai and kamikazes of old. In his mind he is still fighting ancient wars, obeying orders given centuries ago. Mad Ronn once was a 'sniffer' robot, a bomb disposal expert. His snout contains the most sensitive electronic sensors.
