This is it! Kirk suggests they retake the bridge. Spock agrees, but with the turbolifts offline, they will need to use the Jeffries tubes, using their tricorders to ensure they do not get lost.
However, April has already planned for this contingency, and uses Protocol 31 to seal off the tubes. Kirk repeatedly kicks at one of the environmental seals until it dislodges, enabling him to pass through. Spock is able to similarly escape and makes his way to a maintenance shaft.
Kirk emerges in Ten Forward, where April and Mudd have imprisoned most of his crewmates. Kirk tells them there is nothing to worry about, but McCoy motions to the viewing window; the IKS Klothos has arrived. Commander Kor is impressed that April has managed to take control of the Enterprise. However, before April can finalize their deal, the power shuts down. The systems will reboot in a few minutes, giving them back control. However, with the Klothos on their bow, those few minutes are looking very long.
The first officer of the Klothos notes that the Enterprise has lost power. Kor orders a boarding party, saying that April was foolish to bargain with something they could simply take from him. With April and Mudd focusing on the power loss, Kirk and Spock easily ambush them. April insists that he is trying to save an entire people, while the Enterprise is just one ship.
Kirk counters that the Enterprise is his ship, before stunning April. Kor hails the Enterprise and orders Kirk to surrender; any resistance will be seen as an act of war. Kirk insists that he does not want war with the Empire, then orders Spock to go to warp.
Kor tells his crew to take heart; the Enterprise may have escaped, but Phaedus IV can be claimed for the Empire.
In a holding cell, Kirk tells April that it was foolish of him to think that he could save his friends by making a deal with the Klingons. His actions nearly started a war with the Klingons, something the Federation cannot afford. Kirk tells April that his time away from Earth has driven him mad, but now he will go home to answer for all he has done.
Spock tells Kirk that Mudd will be remanded to the custody of Starfleet Security, but Kirk wants to keep her ship, as it might come in handy. Privately, Kirk grudgingly admits to Spock that he believes April was right; the Phaedans were on the brink of extinction.
If Starfleet cannot prevent that kind of tragedy, then why are they there?I hope you and your family and friends are safe and in good health. On the other hand, if you can take advantage of some unexpected down time at home, perhaps you might catch up on some leisure reading, and hey!

Crisp and clean, effective style. I think he is just fantastic. Celardo starts out as early as with Fiction House, but leaves there in Sounds a bit like Hitchcock there birds attacking people and killing them.
Not Ace, though. Ace did everything in 7 pages, but would have added a twist. Artwork is a mystery here — a wild guess: could this be Jack Katz inking Rocco Mastroserio? Giacoia was a DC regular at that time but did the odd horror job for Ziff-Davis!
Look There: Comics Stories with Art by Alex Toth
The Standard horror covers by Jack Katz are beautiful: shrill, strange and colorful. In my eyes, Katz is no good artist, but most powerful in his quirkiness. Very well suited for horror stories. His absence of any kind of elegance enhances the madness lurking behind every excursion into the supernatural, the brutal powerlessness of the protagonists in the face of incomprehensible evil.
Cardy is good though — and will get even better. Everything you always wanted to know about bucket-kicking but were afraid to ask…. Again I shake my weary head in disbelief how misguided the writing is. Standard put a real effort in creating as little suspense as possible : the plot idea about a camera able to show the future ends in a pedestrian wrap-up killer gets caught after 5-panel-flight.
And deservedly so. This tale about a robotic house with an electronic brain is refreshingly modern and a bit more science fiction than horrorbut who wants to complain regarding the wonderful art?! Too bad that this was NOT written by a Standard author. Obviously a clever writer sold his story twice!
There it is. Postcript September Special treat! Jason Willis produced a second animated trailer to promote this book — just for fun. We show you the cover, you click it and will see the animation. Does not make any sense, but fascinates the reader with pages of pure and dark psychedelia.

More details about this comic may be available in their page here.I've seen the hand of glory myth a number of times, but the throwing milk at it is new.
How embarrassing is that? Go to all the trouble to get one and it's defeated by milk and you get soaked in the process! The whole Hand of Glory has a lot of awesome art from Drucker.
The camera angles with the candles are all really well thought out. I love the frog-like demon in "Demon Count. I guess we know how the X-men's Polaris got her powers now! Wasn't there a Hand Of Glory story somewhere in the archives here?
I sort of half remember one. But the sun isn't a perfect circle, is an oblate spheroid like the earth. That's why the running around in circles doesn't bring luck!
I just realised! It's cute how they don't say what it is that succubi do. That succs! Yes there are two, and if you read my post intro you'll see that I even included the direct links to both stories.
Scrolling down the page quickly, I initially misread "Demon Count," omitting a vowel. That, doubtlessly, would have been a much different story and one that could only be drawn in one of the post-'60s alternative comics, not in a precode magazine. Usually, the milk was thrown on the hand of glory when it was left unattended.
It wasn't just thrown at the thieves like Dorothy throwing a bucket of water at the Wicked Witch of the West. Also, why milk? Quite simple really. Milk represented birth and life, the opposite of the hand of glory which was made from death itself.
I'm with Grant. Noticed it right away. That demon in the last panel is definitely stealing Christmas. I really like the first panel of the Magic Circle page. Not sure how I would react to my fellow poker player blithely announcing how he's going to employ magic to start beating me.
