Comments: The Wild Wild West is certainly different here. There are so many famous people mentioned as well. King Abraham is ruling the American Empire and he wants the territories of the West.
The art is lacking in focus. The people are drawn indistinct. The story is extremely wordy and does start to drag on.
A contest is being arranged for ten men to fight as representatives of the men one of whom will be Lincoln’s, right-hand man. Faro is one of the ten fighters he represents Billy the Kid.
Besides the historical figures, there are many others the Sheik, the Professor, the Assassin and others. There is a nice variety of characters.
The Iron Games has ten men and women fighting for their boss who will lead the country while Lincoln is away. This battle royal brawl is hard hitting with fast action. An Iron King is crowned.
Then the battle for Iron Queen has Xera the Primal vs Tyde the Sea Nymph. These two are illustrated as warrior women.
The Raider of the Night pin-up style page has an amazing piece of art. The colors, the rider, and horse all combine to produce a sight of menace and astonishment.
