As the A.B.C. Warriors travel across Mars to recruit their latest companion, they recall their battles in the Volgan War, a vicious conflict fought for oil on Earth. Hammerstein, Mongrol, and Joe Pineapples relate their personal experiences fighting the bloodthirsty Ikon, and find that their tales contain a sinister common thread. Just who was the mysterious Zippo, and what was the Phoenix Programme? Then in Volume 2, ever closer to retrieving their comrade Zippo from Marineris, 'The Ugliest City in the Galaxy,' Deadlock and Blackblood recount dark tales from their involvement in the Volgan War, and an ex-ABC Warrior nursing a big grudge commits the ultimate act of betrayal!
