Comments: “The Adventures of Sky Marshal” Plot by David Berge, words Dennis Mallonee, artwork Barras, Baldorado, Beachum & Tighe, letters David Cody Weiss & Simek and colors Janice Cohen.
Flare is illustrated here with an edge to her character.
The Sky Marshal stands ready to protect Flare from aliens. Are there really aliens? Well, the Sky Marshal can track Flare because of her Photonic Energy which gives her her powers. Flare is written with a tough attitude. She is a strong woman in both body and mind.
The story could have used more action. The fight with the Sky Marshal was over way to quick.
