Archer & Armstrong
Archer is a consumate martial artist and a Harbinger,
gifted with uncanny powers of perception. Since a childhood
near-death experience, he has committed himself to vanquishing
the evils of the world. Armstrong is an immortal, amoral libertine
who abandoned such naive idealism thousands of years ago.
As different from each other as Yin and Yang, they go together
as naturally as beer and pretzels...
As a child, Obadiah archer discovers that his evangelist
parents are, in reality, deviant killers.
In an attempt to cover their tracks, they engineer Archer's
fiery death. Archer is left clinically dead, but he miraculously
returns to the land of the living--longing for vengeance.
Archer's resurrection seems to have endowed him with paranormal
abilities. Running away, he travels to Ladakh, where his psionic
powers of perception and coordination make him the greatest martial
artist to ever live!
Returning to America many years later, Archer meets a drifter
named Armstrong, who is actually thousands of years old and
as strong as a tank.
"Armstrong", born Aram, is the brother of Ivar, the Timewalker
and Gilad Anni-Padda, the Eternal Warrior.
They are pursued across the globe by a cult called the Sect,
who believe Armstrong is the Devil and must be destroyed.
On a Mediterranean isle, Archer meets Armstrong's beautiful wife,
Andromeda, who seemingly wields magical powers.
Moving on to England, the pair finds Ivar about to be lynched
by a temporally-displaced mob. Only Solar's timely intervention
saves the day.
Back in L.A., they once again face Sect leader Mahmud, who now wields
the enormous power derived from the mysterious items within
Settling down in Los Angeles, Archer & Armstrong find that trouble
continues to find them. In the coming months, their attempts to
recover art treasures stolen from Armstrong will bring them into
conflict with neo-Nazis. And a second brush with death will leave
Archer even more fanatically bent on destroying the evils of the world!
Mobster Angelo Mortalli was sold out by the Carboni crime family.
Forced to be a test-subject, his memories of his former life were
erased when his bloodstream was infused with microscopic computers
called nanites. Now a killing-machine, a lethal engine of destruction,
he struggles emotionally to accept what he has become...
The empirically-enhanced man who would be code-named "Bloodshot"
escapes, clueless of his former identity, from the secret labs
of Project Rising Spirit.
A triumph of bio-engineering, his nanite blood gives him superhuman
speed, agility, and healing powers: total body control.
Bloodshot can also dominate electrical devices and read computers
directly through physical contact.
Unable to successfully recreate the "Blood of Heroes",
Hideyoshi Iwatsu, founder of Rising Spirit, sends his "Speedshot"
warriors to retrieve it. But their inferior nanite-spawned
abilities cannot match those of Bloodshot's.
Not even the bionically-armored Harbinger, Ax, can prevail
against Bloodshot's ferocity! Even so, the Blood of Heroes is
too attractive a prize for Ax to stay away for long.
Bloodshot seeks out Mafia Don Benito Carboni to learn the truth
about his own criminal past.
Turning his back on the evil man he once was, Bloodshot gains
an ally in Gilad, the Eternal Warrior. As a global agent of
Gilad's "solicitor", Neville Alcott, Bloodshot continues to find
himself in the thick of the action.
Bloodshot's affiliation with Neville will introduce him to new
foes and allies--including Ninjak and the multi-national criminal
organization known as the WEBNET. And a long-running conflict in
Bloodshot's life will be resolved with surprising results!
With an ultra-dense cellular structure that gives him great
strength and the ability to heal from the most grievous of wounds,
Gilad Anni-Padda is even immune to the ravages of time.
The greatest fighter from an age when the sword was the law, he
was ancient before the rise of the Pharaohs, and shall survive the
fall of nations yet to come. He is the Fist and Steel of those
who guard the Earth--the Geomancers, and his battle is
Bravest of a warrior tribe, Gilad Anni-Padda was born before
He and his brothers, Aram and Ivar, are the only known naturally
When their tribe is decimated by the Sumerians, Gilad and his
brothers go their separate ways.
Establishing a relationship with the Geomancers, Gilad pledges
to enforce their will for generations to come.
Centuries later in China, Gilad first battles the Immortal Enemy,
General Cheng. It is Cheng's hatred of Gilad that makes him
reincarnate through the ages, always seeking Gilad's destruction.
In World War II, Gilad meets Neville Alcott, who would later serve
to aid the Eternal Warrior's causes.
Now known as Gilad Abrams, the Warrior fights the Immortal Enemy's
latest incarnation: Colombian drug lord Juan Javier Caldone.
Gilad has also incurred the enmity of Master Darque--necromancer
But Gilad is no stranger to strife. For if a warrior's worth is
measured by his enemies, then Gilad continues to be the greatest
warrior of all time.
With Bloodshot taking over Gilad's responsibilities to Neville,
the Eternal Warrior finds himself focusing all of his energies on
stopping the man who may well be his greatest enemy--Master Darque!
If you thought the first 5,000 years of Gilad's life were hard,
just wait for the battles ahead!
A new breed walks among us--harbingers of the next step in
human evolution. Are these paranormal "Harbingers" the hope
of the future, or heralds of doom?
It begins with Toyo Harada, the powerful psionic whose Harbinger
Foundation recruits others with similar abilities to carry out
his agenda of world domination.
One of the Harbingers they recruit is Pete Stanchek, the only
other existing "Omega Harbinger", whose full-range psionic
power rivals Harada's.
Realizing Harada's schemes, Pete flees the Foundation with his
They are joined by Zepplin, Flamingo, and Torque, all of them
renegade Harbingers. Together, they use their different psionic
abilities to wage war against Harada's forces.
But Torque is killed by Harada's elite Harbingers, the "Eggbreakers".
Months later, during the Unity conflict, Kris gives birth to
Torque's child. That infant, by the will of the Geomancers,
is sent to the future to become Magnus, Robot Fighter--champion
of the forty-first century.
Back from Unity, they recruit Shatiqua, whose superhuman reflexes
and tough attitude help when they battle the H.A.R.D. Corps.
Later, they team up with Screen, a renegade Harbinger capable of
projecting force fields. Having opposed Harada even longer than
Pete, Screen brings the experience of a veteran to the group.
But Peter Stanchek knows that time is running out, for he must
soon face Harada in a deadly showdown that will determine the
fate of the world.
The turbulent past of these young warriors will seem like the
good old days compared to what lies ahead. When Pete and Harada
have their final battle, nothing will ever be the same, either for
Pete's band of renegades, or for the Harbinger Foundation.
Members of a secret paramilitary organization, the psi-borg
soldiers of the H.A.R.D. Corps have use of amazing powers,
but the cost is their freedom...
Fearing the rise of the Harbinger Foundation, Mr. Heydrich's
Omen Corporation creates the Harbinger Active Resistance Division,
or H.A.R.D. Corps.
By means of cybernetic brain implants, candidates are plucked
These same implants can stimulate portions of the brain,
reproducing the psionic powers of certain Harbingers. In battle,
the H.A.R.D. Corps operatives, called psi-borgs, can call for
Harbinger powers, one at a time.
Operating the H.A.R.D. Corps' Harbinger Powers database is
Softcore. It is she who grants psi-borg requests for powers.
The original H.A.R.D. Corps included Maniac, Gunslinger,
Hammerhead, and Shakespeare.
On a raid against a Harbinger Foundation installation, Maniac is
beaten to death by the massive Harbinger, Big Boy.
Despite the perious nature of the job, more psi-borgs join the ranks,
including Superstar and Flatline...
...as well as the newest rookies, Hotshot, Wipeout, and Perp.
In addition to fighting Harbinger forces, they have even battled
the Spider Aliens. Any enemy of humanity is an enemy of the
But it is not the joy of battle that motivates these men and women.
Should they forsake their duty, Omen will return them to their coma
state. In the months to come, they shall test the limits of their
freedom, and be forced to watch as death takes another of their ranks.
Magnus Robot Fighter
In the distant future, when people have become dependent on the
robot work force, one man has come to symbolize the strength of
the Human Spirit. Magnus, Robot Fighter, who was raised to
protect the citizens of North Am from their own mechanical
servants, now fights a robot invasion that threatens humanity
The self-aware "Freewill" robot, 1-A, raises Magnus from infancy
to fight rogue Freewills.
A second-generation Harbinger, Magnus hones his superhuman
toughness through 1-A's perfect method of martial arts training.
When he reaches adulthood, Magnus comes to North Am to battle the
growing number of rogue Freewills. Becoming a national hero, he
falls in love with Leeja Clane, the daughter of North Am's President.
But, even as he shatter rogue after rogue, he begins to consider
their right to life.
Befriended by the Freewill robot, Tekla, Magnus is finally convinced
to end his war on robots. Thereafter, the Freewills set up their
city-state of Synchron, with Tekla as their leader.
Contemptuous of those who dwell in the Milespires, Magnus moves
to North Am's impoverished lower levels to live among the "Gophs".
There, he meets Goph champion, Slagger.
Then, the evil robot race of planet Malev 6 invades North Am.
Led by the Malev Emperor, these killer robots have no regard
for life. Their ultimate goal is to transform Earth into their new
To the Malevs, humans are only useful as a source of the "ectotheric
energy" produced by their thought waves.
Now, all the Earth is at war with the Malev invaders. Taking
the lead in this battle, Magnus armors himself with a new,
more protective uniform.
And even his old robot mentor, 1-A, is reborn, able to transfer
his consciousness between the bird-like "ASA" unit and the
humanoid "Hard Rob" body.
The future is uncertain, not only for Magnus, but for the
Human Race itself. As the Malev invasion forces spread their
conquest across the globe, Magnus will find himself fighting to
save South Am and other bastions of civilization from falling
before the onslaught. And, in the midst of global warfare, can
Magnus and Leeja's fragile love endure?
Rai and the Future Force
Since the thirty-first century, and for a thousand years thereafter,
a successive line of extraordinary men have assumed the mantle
of "Rai", the national protector of Japan. Now, with Japan shattered
and Earth being conquered, one man has become the last Rai--seeking to
defend not a nation, but the entire planet from the Malev threat...
Tohru Nakadai is the forty-second man to become the Japanese
It is "Grandmother", the sentient computer caretaker of Japan,
that transforms Tohru into Rai, imbuing him with vast and powerful
During Tohru's tenure as Rai, the Spider Aliens invade Earth for
the second time. Controlled by Grandmother, the enormous robot-body
that covers the Japanese islands is brought to bear against the
The alien armada is destroyed, but Japan will never be the same.
Grandmother relinquishes control of the nation of Japan, which now
orbits Earth like a second moon...
...and, during the battle, Tohru's wife, Kayuzo, acquires an alien
battle-armor suit, making her nearly as powerful as Rai!
Later, during the Unity conflict, Mothergod causes Japan to fall from
orbit, effectively destroying the once-proud country.
Tohru attempts to avenge his slain countrymen, but is himself killed
by the murderous Mothergod.
Later, with Earth under attack by the evil Malev robots, Geomancer
Rokland Tate infuses Takao Konishi with the fabled "Blood of Heroes",
dubbing Takao as the "Last Rai".
Now Takao wields the powers of the nanite-laced blood that once
coursed through Bloodshot's veins. With the cry of "Mindlock!",
he can mentally control the Malev invaders, one at a time.
And Takao has a further talent. He has the Harbinger ability to
psionically inspire others. The stronger his own convictions are,
the more others will be inspired to follow him.
Fighting alongside this new Rai are Magnus, Tekla, the Eternal Warrior,
Kayuzo in her X-O Commando armor, and the mysterious Spylocke.
Rai's Mindlock power makes him the greatest threat to the Malev
Emperor, and therefore he is a primary target of the evil robots.
Rai's campaign against the Malev invaders will take him around the
globe. From Australia to South Am, Rai's struggle is as worldwide
as his hopes. and what of the mysterious Spylocke? Is he truly
an ally, or has he some private agenda?
Geomancer Geoff McHenry has a gift for finding trouble, and enough
sense to summon help in his causes. Even with his new
comrades-at-arms, Livewire and Stronghold, Geoff must often recruit
other heroes to combat the evils that threaten the world...
Shortly after becoming the present Geomancer, Geoff McHenry discovers
that he needs help in his personal mission to safeguard the Earth.
The Unity conflict becomes the first great test for the young
Elsewhere, Edward Sedgewick and Amanda McKee are two youths with
psionic powers, training as Eggbreakers for the Harbinger Foundation.
Eddie is code-named "Stronghold" because of his ability to absorb
mass, making him bigger and stronger.
Able to manipulate the electromagnetic spectrum, Amanda is
code-named "Livewire". Her favorite weapon is a long metal cord
which she magnetically animates like a deadly steel serpent.
When Stronghold accidentally kills a fellow Harbinger with his
mass-absorption power, he is overcome with remorse.
Tired of being manipulated by the Harbinger Foundation, Stronghold
and Livewire leave the Eggbreakers to pursue their own lives.
Meeting Geoff, they are immediately recruited in the battle
against Master Darque's strongest minion, a being composed
of pure necromantic energy--Doctor Eclipse.
Now, the three have an ongoing partnership. Their alliance will
be tested when they take on the "Speedshot" agents of
Project Rising Spirit, and with Ninjak, they'll confront the
organization known as the WEBNET.
The city of New Orleans has a history of wild nightlife and
Voodoo lore. Now, the superstitious folk whisper of a man in a
carnival mask who prowls the night, savagely attacking members
of the New Orleans underworld. The pushers and pimps are learning
to fear the vigilante called "Shadowman" who's causing big trouble
in the Big Easy...
Jack Boniface is a jazz saxophone player--just another Bourbon Street
entertainer with big dreams.
One night he is bitten by a vampiric Spider Alien named Lydia.
Jack does not know what saves him after her poison knocks him
out--only that when he awakens, she is gone.
Since that night, with each sunset, Jack is overcome by the urge
to seek and destroy evil. Drug dealers, in particular, are targets
of his nocturnal patrols.
Jack's housekeeper, Nettie, provides his costume. Familiar with
Voodoo, Nettie claims that Jack is inhabited by Voodoo Loa that
compel him to be Shadowman.
During the Unity conflict, Jack meets Elya, a warrior-woman from
the forty-first century. After they fall in love, she reveals to
him that he is destined to die violently in 1999.
Losing Elya when Unity ended, Shadowman goes on to become the
nemesis of Master Darque. Their ongoing, strangely intimate conflict
may one day decide the fate of humanity.
At one point, Darque's power makes Jack into a "Blood-Runner".
His life-force bleeding out for Darque to consume. Jack finally
shakes off Darque's influence when he recalls that he isn't fated
to die until 1999.
Then, as Shadowman, he attacks Darque at a critical moment, ruining
the master necromancer's spell for absolute power.
With Darque temporarily defeated, Jack sets out on a journey of
sight-seeing and introspection. But the same questions still
Why does Shadowman sometimes possess inhuman strength in time of
great peril? And why does it seem that Jack Boniface and Shadowman
are like two separate people within the same body? The coming months
shall reveal that Nettie is not who she seems, that Jack's link to
Darque is closer than he fears, and that the legacy of Shadowman
extends farther than he ever dreamed!
Solar, Man of the Atom
What would you desire, if nothing was beyond your grasp? If atoms and
energy, the building blocks of reality, were yours to command, what
more could you want? Such a man exists. A man of absolute power
who wants what he cannot have: love, peace of mind, a simple life.
In a world of men who covet power, he is god who wants to live
as a man...
Originally appearing in comics published by Gold Key in the 1960's,
Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom, has thrilled generations of readers,
including a young physics enthusiast named Phil Seleski.
Years later, the adult Dr. Seleski designs the experimental fusion
reactor where he works with fellow physicists, Gayle Nordheim and
An accident at the reactor unleashes forces that give Phil godlike
energy powers--abilities subconsciously shared by Dr. Pierce.
But he loses control of these powers, killing everyone on Earth,
including his beloved Gayle.
The powers that Phil unleashes cast him through time and space into
our universe, burdened with the crushing knowledge that he has
destroyed his own world.
Phil avoids repeating his world-shattering mistakes by merging with
the Phil Seleski of this new timeline.
Adopting the guise of his childhood comic book hero, Phil defends
Earth from the Spider Aliens, who call him the "Destroyer" because
he is bent on their total annihilation.
With her own energy powers, Erice Pierce also comes to our world
and draws its heroes to the Lost Land to fight in the Unity conflict.
Solar ends her bid to destroy all of creation by trapping her within
a cinture wormhole.
Returning from the Lost Land, Phil moves with Gayle to California,
where they try to live as a normal couple.
But Solar continues to be needed. Learning of the Spider Alien base
on the moon's dark side, Solar teams up with X-O to destroy the
Later, manipulated by Master Darque, Phil releases another Solar,
the Destroyer, now journeys through the galaxy, seeking to
annihilate the Spider Alien Homeworld.
With such epic battles in his past, Phil's greatest challenge is his
second chance at a life with his lover, Gayle. But with his powers
cut in half and a trail of enemies behind him, can he ever have a
normal life? And what will become of the Solar Warrior?
Turok, Dinosaur Hunter
He is a man out of his time--born before the White Man conquered
America. With a deadly combination of modern weaponry and ancient
wisdom, he fights a vendetta against creatures birthed by an unholy
union of nature and technology--the bionisaurs. He fights this
private war, knowing the society he protects has turned its back
on his own people...
First seen in Dell Comics in 1954, Turok built a strong fan following
that endures to this day.
In the American West of the 1860's, Kiowa Indian hunters Turok and
Andar explore a cave in the desert. The cave leads to another
dimension. They emerge in the Lost Land, where they are menaced by
dinosaurs and primitive tribesman.
Later, Turok leads the primitives against an incursion into the
Lost Land by Dr. Lazlo Noel of North Am. Joining forces with
North Am's protector, Magnus, Turok has his first encounter with
Then, Erica Pierce, known as "Mothergod", arrives! Immediately
changing the Lost Land to suit her plans, she erects futuristic
facilities and fits dinosaurs with intelligence-boosting implants.
One of these "bionisaurs", called Mon-Ark, becomes Turok's
When Solar defeats Mothergod's genocidal "Unity" plan, the Lost Land
is reduced to a state of unreality. Separated from Andar, Turok is
cast through time and space to the jungles of Colombia in 1987.
But he has not made the journey alone; scores of bionisaurs have
also appeared on Earth--including Mon-Ark!
Turok's epic battle against his enemies eventually results in
Mon-Ark's death, but it has cost him dearly in lost friends and
With occasional help from his closest friend, Aric, Turok's hunt
Even as he searches for the few remaining bionisaurs, he knows that
he must also find a place for himself in this strange new world.
Turok's quest will soon reveal what became of his lost friend, Andar,
as well as pit him against high-tech hunters out to bag the dinosaurs
for their own questionable purposes. And he will also discover that
he was not the only human to be transported here from the Lost Land!
Aric, the Visigoth, is abducted by Spider Aliens in A.D.408 to
serve as both slave and food-source on an alien starship. A fierce
warrior, he turns upon his captors and steals their ultimate weapon:
a sentient suit of living armor powerful enough to lay waste to a
planet! Returning to find Earth changed by hundreds of years of
progress, he must now make a place for himself in this new society
where his honor and courage make him the only man worthy of the power
The starship on which he is a captive is attacked by Solar.
Amidst the chaos, Aric steals the aliens' greatest weapon:
the Manowar Class X-O Armor that he simply calls the "Good Skin".
On Earth, 1600 years have passed while the alien ship traveled
space at relativistic speeds. Upon returning, Aric is befriended
by Ken Clarkson, who seeks the Armor for his Spider Alien masters.
But Ken turns against the Spiders. His left arm is severed by alien
laser-fire as he and Aric defeat the aliens and take the corporate
empire of Orb Industries away from them.
But Ken cannot be trusted, so Aric forces an extension of the
X-O Armor upon him as an artificial arm to slay Ken should he ever
again betray Aric.
During the Unity conflict, Aric is nearly bitten in half by a
bionisaur. Only the X-O Armor's healing abilities keep him from
From Unity, Aric is returned by Solar to A.D.408. But his superhuman
power so terrifies his fellow Visigoths that they unite with their
enemies, the Romans, in an unsuccessful attempt on Aric's life.
Unwelcome in his own time, Aric hibernates in the Armor until the
present. During this time, the X-O Armor evolves a different
configuration and sprouts a Seed able to spawn another Manowar Armor.
The Armor is called to the Spider moonbase by the aliens, who desire
the X-O Seed. But Aric proves that even without the Armor, he can
still beat the Spider Champion.
With a mutual desire to eradicate the Spider Aliens, Aric and Solar
destroy the moonbase and the sixty thousand aliens within.
Then, the U.S. government tries to take the Armor and study it.
Rather than risk it falling into unscrupulous hands, they decide
that such a powerful weapon is best left in Aric's hands.
But Aric has had enough of the modern world and he takes off on a
personal sabbatical, leaving the Armor with his trusted security
chief, Randy Cartier.
Aric's attempt to leave his troubles behind will only lead to further
conflicts in the Amazon rainforest. Meanwhile, Randy's life will be
changed by the Armor even as the Armor is changed by Randy! After
that, we will see the deadly result of the Government's study of
the Armor. And a figure from Orb Industries' past will return
to test Aric's mettle.
The most powerful psionic on Earth, Toyo Harada is living proof
that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. One of two
known Harbingers to possess the "Omega Power", Harada commands the
full spectrum of psionic abilities, including telepathy, telekinesis,
mind-control, and many other deadly talents. Fearing that humanity
may eventually destroy itself, Harada decided early in his life to
preserve the planet by clandestinely conquering it. To this end,
he established the Harbinger Foundation to recruit others with
paranormal abilities, whom Harada refers to as "Harbingers" of the
next step in human evolution. He seldom confronts his enemies
directly, preferring to leave such dirty-work to his elite
Harbinger warriors, the "Eggbreakers". With tremendous economic
and political clout, Harada seems close to achieving his goals,
and is ready to destroy anyone who stands in his way. The great
irony is that Harada truly feels he was born to save the human race.
But, in his haste to eliminate any opposition to his grand scheme,
Toyo Harada has lost his own humanity.
Little is known about the man called Master Darque, and every
revelation about this sorcerous necromancer only raises further
questions. Born in the early 1800's, Darque and his sister,
Sandria, always showed a penchant for magic and the Black Arts.
Mystically prolonging their lives, the pair have survived to the
present day, spared the ravages of time. In recent years, Darque's
necromantic powers have blossomed to horrific new extents, as though
some new source of death-energy had arrived in the world.
Now, after years of seemingly pointless existence, Darque finds
himself with enough power to challenge the host of new superhumans
in the world.
Special investigator Fred Bender once coveted the limitless power
wielded by Solar, Man of the Atom. However, such godhood was denied
him and he was stranded by Solar in the middle of the desert.
But Master Darque has other plans for Fred Bender, converting him
into Solar's counterpart--a being of vast necromantic energy to
serve as Darque's most powerful instrument of destruction.
But where Solar's power had thrilled Bender with the wonder of
Creation, Darque's gift of power numbs him with the emptiness of
Death. Reborn as Doctor Eclipse, Bender is now cursed with the power
he thirsted for, his black vestments reflecting the dark madness
in his soul.
The Second Life of Doctor Mirage
Parapsychologists Doctor Hwen Mirage and his wife, Carmen Ruiz,
investigate unexplained phenomena, trying to solve all manner of
supernatural mysteries. When Mirage himself is murdered by
Master Darque, Carmen brings her husband's spirit back from the
dead through the power of their love for each other. Now, the
spectral Doctor Mirage finds himself intangible, unable to even
touch the woman he conquered death to rejoin! Together, they
must face new dangers as they strive to control Mirage's strange
powers. And in exploring Mirage's supernatural potential, they
shall unlock secrets of the Valiant Universe itself. Find out
in THE SECOND LIFE OF DOCTOR MIRAGE!
Colin King, code-named Ninjak, is the enforcer for the mysterious
Weaponeer and the top espionage expert in the world. From martial
arts to demolition and information acquisition, Ninjak's multitude
of skills and keen intellect always keep him a step ahead of his
opponents. And his amazing ability to prepare for any outcome in
a given situation means that, no matter how outmatched he may seem,
Ninjak always has an ace in the hole! Ninjak also protects himself
with a unique, kevlar armored body-suit that can change colors like
a chameleon. But whether his approach is stealthy or direct, Ninjak
is never caught unprepared!
Ivar, the Timewalker, has experienced the passage of thousands of
years, just like his immortal brothers, Gilad and Aram. Unlike them,
or anyone else, Ivar has spent his years skipping around from one
point in history to the next. Able to find natural "time-arcs" that
carry him from era to era, Ivar might be in the present on week, and
in the 41st-Century North Am the next. This gets to be tricky for
Ivar, who must take care to do nothing that could change history--even
though this pledge of non-interference often leads to some difficult
choices. But his time jumps aren't motivated by curiosity or
adventure; Ivar only hopes that the next arc will place him back in
the arms of his one, great love--lost in another time.
