ComicsEdit

From this issue onwards, there were two comics in each issue, and the comics were five pages long, rather than the three pages the previous "Grudge Match" and "Fantasy Fight" comics had been.

Fantasy Fight: Panic Attack vs Suicidal Tendencies - The two robots charged straight into each other, and Panic Attack got underneath Suicidal Tendencies, pushing it into Sergeant Bash's CPZ. Bash attacked Suicidal Tendencies with the flamethrower, but then pinched into Panic Attack's lifting forks, giving Suicidal Tendencies a chance to escape. Suicidal Tendencies came back, and flipped Panic Attack with its forks, sending Panic Attack flying straight into the pit.

Fantasy Fight: Behemoth vs Wild Thing vs Gemini - Wild Thing charged at Gemini, but Gemini split, so both halves dodged Wild Thing. Instead, Wild Thing charged into Behemoth, which flipped it. The two halves of Gemini got behind Behemoth and flipped it. Wild Thing came back into the battle, and both halves of Gemini charged in on it. However, Wild Thing was able to flip one of the Gemini halves out of the arena, before Behemoth charged in on the other two robots, leaving them broken and immobilised.
