Demon Hunters: Back from the Dead – Page 1
Splash page. Champ de Mars, Paris. Parisians flee in terror as Alpha One fights a TENTACULAR MONSTROSITY clambering its way up the Eiffel Tower. A number of its offspring--MINISTROSITIES the size of VW Beetles--ooze around the base of the tower. ICHABOD dashes forward, slashing with both of his swords, dicing a charging Ministrosity into pieces. ANGEL is held aloft--and upside-down--by the Monstrosity's slimy purple tentacle wrapped around her waist, but that doesn't keep her from firing twin submachine guns into the beast's nest of crimson eyes. LONDON - in full wolf-mode - sinks his fangs into a tentacle and holds fast as the creature thrashes to dislodge him. A giant Fleischer-style battle robot--with HERR DOKTOR at the controls behind the glass dome of its head--grips a tentacle and pulls with all its might, attempting to tug the creature down from the tower. On the ground, VICTORIA, drenched in ichor and bile, stands victorious atop a small mountain of dead ministrosities as she holds one over her head and rips it apart with her bare hands.
