Today's black-and-white one-pager is guest-starring Cobweb.
This first story is actally the backup story, beautifully drawn by Frank Cho (Liberty Meadows). It's about an evil-minded rich software pirate who wants to be a real pirate on the sea. But he better shouldn't have messed with Greyshirt...
GREYSHIRT: The Last Mile
The second story (being the actual main feature in this issue) is finally concluding Greyshirt's origin story. Candi, who is on death row (see #2), tells Greyshirt that his ex-pal and former adversary Johnny Apollo is not dead, and that he's responsible for the kidnapping of Greyshirts parents, Lips and Carmine (see #5). Greyshirt is supposing that Johnny's hiding in the mines. And he's right: Johnny lives there - but as a part of the mine monster "The Lure" (see #1). Everything ends with a final showdown, where Indigo City is almost destroyed and Greyshirt's family is happily reunited.
It's really great to see how all the different strands are tied together in this final issue of the miniseries. The one thing I didn't like was the strange explanation of how and why "The Lure" exists.
All in all, this series had some ups and downs storywise, but great guest artists and good entertainment for everybody who liked the Greyshirt strips in Tomorrow Stories.
