The BLOODLINES Summer Annual crossover event continues from Hawkman (1993) Annual #1. As the alien parasite Venev cuts a gory swath of destruction across France, she comes head to head with Deathstroke. This tale finally answers the question of where Deathstroke gets his hardware, as we meet weaponsmith Gunther Von Horn...just in time for him to be slaughtered by Venev! And when Von Horn's 22-year-old son Andrew recovers from Venev's attack, he becomes Gunfire, the latest infusion of New Blood into the DC Universe. BLOODLINES continues in Eclipso Annual (1992) #1. Written by Len Wein, with art by Steve Erwin, Will Blyberg, John Statema, Brian Garvey and Dave Simons. Cover by Mike Zeck and Statema. 68 pages. New Format.
