1st Printing / April 1973 / 36 pages / Last Gasp
_
Greg Irons and Tom Veitch start off Slow Death #5 with a rib-tickling tale about an evil plot hatched in the bowels of the Last Gasp head office! Charles Dallas and Rand Holmes give us two interplanetary travel stories, which both conclude that Earth's destruction appears inevitable, and Richard Corben closes with a futuristic hunting yarn that gives an arrogant sportsman his just desserts.
