Far-Out Fantasy Week! Random Reads: "Slave Maid of Satan!" by Uslan and Villamonte

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Let's kick this Far-Out Fantasy Week off with some of the far-out strangeness that was DC's Beowulf! Writer Michael Uslan and artist Ricardo Villamonte gave this mag their all, filling it with literary references, mythology, fantasy, and a wild, unrestrained energy that kept this mag on Young Groove's radar for its all too short five issue run. From Beowulf #2 (March 1975), here's "Slave Maid of Satan!"

    Why..? The cover girl had such memorable breasts...
