    Gyre Traditions and Interruptions (1998 Abaculus) 0

    Written by Martin Shipp, Art by Mare Laming. An immortal, armored woman considers the champion she will choose to safeguard humanity. A young man reflects on the mystical powers he has been given and his mission to protect and avenge the souls of all those who died before their time. A female assassin accepts a mission. What do these three events have to do with one another? Its not obvious in this short, cryptic prelude to Gyre: Harmless Childrens Toy, but mysteries put forth here are interesting, especially when the armored woman muses, This [champion] will beā€¦one for whom the role will mean unique duties, to be executed in exceptional ways. With a line like that, one wonders what will happen next. This special was distributed at the 1998 San Diego Comic-Con as a preview to the ongoing Gyre series from Marc Laming and writer Martin Shipp. 8 pages, B&W. Cover price $0.99.
