The Phalanx

Inspired by the original run of Image Comics 30 years ago, writer/artist Jonathan Luna offers this tale of a modern day mercenary on the trail of villain she follows through a portal only to discover herself in 1992 with the chance to work along side the heroes she loved as a child. Even in the early panels which take place today, The Phalanx is so 1990s that it should come with some Ace of Base or TLC to listen to while you read the comic.

The one-shot, which apparently isn't connected to a larger story, is your basic hero out of time. The villain, a man possessed by an evil alien presence, proves to be difficult to catch even with the help of the heroes our protagonist Spur runs into. Fans of 90s Image Comics may get a kick out of this one.
