Robert Boyd and Francisco Solano Lopez present "Buoy 77," a tale of desperation, greed, and treachery. When the crew of the Sogeco Explorer lose a valuable scientific instrument near the village of Viçosa, they entice the locals with a small reward for its return. But a small reward to the Americans is an unbelievable fortune to the villagers, and some people would resort to anything to get a fortune -- even murder! Christopher Moeller's Shadow Empires concludes in this issue as Hano Khazar escapes the palace, and seeks help among the people. But Khazar is a warrior, and warriors are rarely trusted by the common man. Eddie Campbell's Hermes vs. The Eyeball Kid continues this issue. The Eyeball Kid has escaped certain death in the whirling maw of a dam's generators only to face Hermes, who is prepared to use the Beetle Suit!
