Spaceknight Saturdays: A Night in the Museum

So we're where two axes of badassery intersect...

Coming from one direction, Rom, Greatest of the Spaceknights. From the other, Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu.

At the middle point, the Dire Wraiths, trying to resurrect a pharoah princess who just happens to be a Wraith who came down to Earth millenia ago and got mummified alive for her trouble. (Well, she DID kill her adopted father and cause some plagues of Egypt (just not those plagues). Their ceremony involves some brainwashed children, as all their schemes do at this point. It's easy when you have the Jedi mind trick on your side.
And both our heroes are in the museum. At the same time. And together, they battle!

Kung Fu versus mummies!
Yes, you heard me! That's KUNG FU + MUMMIES!!!
Also: Spaceknight versus Knight of the Round Table!
And: Kung Fu versus cavemen!
And of course, a lot of Wraith-fighting too. But while that's going on, the ceremony goes on, and the kids awaken the phalse pharaoh!
Soon enough, our heroes realize she can't be defeated by Rom's neutralizer because she's drawing strength from the kids. Now, I'll say this about Shang-Chi's supporting cast: They're HARDCORE!
(Did I mention I love the inking on this mag? Well I do.) While Rom and the Wraith princess trade energy blasts, it's up to Shang-Chi to upset the balance of power. Museum... museum... what could be helpful?
Oh yeah!!! And in case you thought only his supporting cast was hardcore, let me the say the same about Shang-Chi:
HE'S HARDCORE TOO!!!

A job well done, kids freed, Wraiths dust... Meanwhile, back in Clareton:
That's no-name villain Dr. Dredd turning up out of the blue to turn Brandy into the next Starshine. Stay tuned every Saturday!
