REVIEW SCORE 7
In the first issue of Forbidden Knowledge, Jim Himes contributes a particularly gore-filled tale about a primitive society in "Blood Lust of the Tupinamba." A few pages later, Rich Childlaw gives us a story about Russian castrators, which is dedicated to George's newborn son, the "Mighty Leonardo!"
