  Nice guy, this Jock character. A family member is dying and his first thought is about a possible inheritance.

This feature holds some promise. I think the battle against Mars was a thinly-veiled allegory about war in general. Interesting to see these anti-war messages in the oncoming shadow of World War II.

2 stars, but to be honest, I was expecting a lot worse.

  This was really good... Aside from the gender swapping of Hunger and Poverty. Still a solid story, and I believe this is one of the major key points in the Quality Universe.
