One of my favourite covers and comics of all time. My first Primortals issue, I was hooked. It was accidentally a perfect issue to jump on, with all the major elements and themes of the series packed into one wild issue. Probably the best issue of the whole series.

Lady Justice is a comic book published by Tekno Comix, starting in 1995. It was created by Neil Gaiman and the first three issues were written by Wendi Lee, with art by Greg Boone. The remaining issues of the first series were written by C. J. Henderson, with art by Michael Netzer/Steve Lieber in the first series and Fred Harper/Mike Harris in the second. Music by 13th Sky.
Our fearless leader Mojo (along w/ a few other youtubers) discuss Neil Gaiman's Teknophage. Featuring music by: the Unsatisfied, Skold, Evil Activities, Mygrain, and the Braindead.
The Teknophage, known on Kalighoul as Mr. Henry Phage, is the main antagonist of the Mr. Hero comic book series. Though he is portrayed as dinosaur, he is actually a bipedal 65 million year old serpent or snake demon since his powers are beyond powerful and demonic. He was created by Neil Gaiman for Tekno Comix and featured in Neil Gaiman's Teknophage and Neil Gaiman's Phage: Shadow Death and as a villain in Neil Gaiman's Mr Hero the Newmatic Man.
Neil Gaiman's Teknophage was written by Rick Veitch and drawn by Bryan Talbot for #1-6. Paul Jenkins took over from #7 with artist Al Davison until the series cancellation. The character then appeared in a six-issue limited series written by Bryan Talbot and penciled by Steve Pugh.
Henry Phage, sometimes called the Teknophage or Mr. Phage by those that worked for him is the ruler of many worlds, including his home world, Kalighoul. He has survived for 65 million years, feeding himself and practically making himself like a god. However, he is not immune to objects that are Off-World matter, as we have seen in the Teknophage and Phage: Shadow Death comics. He has created his own technology through use of alchemy and has made his world similar to a Victorian era steampunk world. He lives in a gigantic moving building, the Phage building. He has made allies and enemies from almost every planet and has his sights set on Kalighoul's sister world, Earth. Mr. Phage has the ambition of conquering the whole universe and turning it into his personal buffet.
Teknophage has cultivated civilization on numerous worlds. Through his guidance those worlds make great achievements, only for him to tear it all down and turn them into nightmarish worlds. In his dominions, the innocent are tortured, psychologically destroyed, and physically torn apart. They are either enslaved and worked to death, processed into food for the unsuspecting masses, and/or chemically dissolved. Their souls are turned into Teknophage's obedient soldiers. He has devoured thousands of world and killed billions. When he eats his victims, he swallows them whole so that they are alive while being digested slowly. He is known for slaughtering others for the most minor slights, even his own people.
Teknophage has several powers. For one he is able to consume not only flesh but also the souls of his victims. He is a powerful telekinetic, which grant him the ability to travel across time and space. Teknophage possesses a godlike intelligence.
