The second issue of American Flyer is one of those comics I can read once a year and always get a kick out of. Like the first issue, the book features three Larrys (Welz, Sutherland and Todd), but this time Larry Todd gets a full story instead of only providing the back cover art. American Flyer #2 opens with Larry Welz giving us another Wyatt Winghead adventure, in which Winghead uses his amazing brain power to dethrone a dictator and thwart a hostile invasion of his adopted society (Earth!). Larry Sutherland also reprises the righteous “Right On Squad” for another battle, this time with neo-Nazis.

But it is Larry Todd's “Star Wench on Mars” that steals honors for best of the best in American Flyer #2. Introduced as a "skin flick in a comic book," Todd's story features the Star Wench (who looks a lot like Billy Kropotkin's babe girlfriend Holly from Dr. Atomic), who crash lands her space ship on Mars and sets out to locate the rumored civilization on the red planet. She finds the civilization and joins them for a feast, but is rudely swept off by a couple of mutant monsters to the laboratory of Dr. Emil (the Evil) Ozone.

When Dr. Ozone prepares the Star Wench for a nefarious operation, his ultra-horny assistant Jocko suddenly rebels against the mad doc. Jocko turns the table on Dr. Ozone and performs his own abominable operation, transferring the Wench's most lovely body parts to the doctor. Ozone is none too happy about this outcome and while he tussles with Jocko, the desexed Star Wench escapes the lab and joins forces with her old pals from the feast. Reunited, they conduct a coup on the laboratory and try to set everything right...but everything doesn't quite piece together the way it should!

Raunchy, funny, sexy, and beautifully drawn; “Star Wench on Mars” is eleven pages of underground nirvana. It consummates a terrific two-issue series that deserved many more. Fortunately for the uninitiated, both books are easily acquired for a reasonable fee on the internet.
