CHARLTON BULLSEYE (comic) #3, Sept. 1981

There's a lot of death in this one. Somebody dies in ALL FOUR stories in this issue. Probably not planned that way when assembling the book, but that's how it turned out.
The first story (and cover feature) is a finely crafted sword and sorcery tale written and illustrated by Ian Carr, who displays a level of scripting and art that could have been easily in one of the Big Two, but he chose to go with Charlton. Kudos to Carr.
"Mission" by Michael Grace is a pretty standard yet enjoyable 3 pager, followed by "Cavern Of The Brain-Eaters" by Gary Wray, which although a nice tale isan obvious knock of in both story and art style of Basil Wolverton.
Of real interest here is Ron Fortier and Gary kato's "Duel In The Stars". A bit cliched, perhaps, but a hell of a lot of fun!
Fortier and Kato would go on to have the cover feature on SCARY TALES #38, with the character Mr. Jigsaw, a character the duo still publish via their own Redbud Studio.
