I just can't resist it. Let's read some Classic Cheesy Claremont. Lady Daemon is from the Lethal Ladies issue of Bizarre Adventures and actually, it's reasonably free from 'tics', proving he could write a good story without all that nonsense. Even Chris' predilection for making all his characters speak in a cliched celtic lilt makes sense here for once, as these characters are actually Scottish. And the art, courtesy of Michael Golden & Terry Austin is, of course, brilliant. When they used to talk about comics being 'black & white in colour' this is the kind of thing they meant. The use of photos doesn't quite work, but hey, this was years before photoshop. And I guess, if you were in a nitpicky mood, you could mention that the death card in the Tarot pack doesn't actually mean real death, but who ever gets magic right in comics anyway? Only Steve Ditko.
