For a second, we considered editing this down to just the fight with the giant lizard… which seems to be based on an IGUANA. We hate to knock anyone who can draw better than us, but iguanas are vegetarians and probably the least scary reptile out there. Sure you don’t want to make one angry, but don’t think your lady friends are going to give you extra points if you spear one of them! COME ON!
Anyway, enough editorializing! Along with a Rex Baxter story, we get a drawing lesson in this issue. PLUS a fun fact about the world’s most powerful radio on the Eiffel Tower, a fun fact about ants with swollen bodies full of honey-flavored goo, and a %$#&!-ing sweet orb that explodes out of the ground! SOLD!
