Worst comic ever - kafraco
This comic book was the last of the DeMatteis/Badger run. Their collaboration on the title was unfairly compared to the Chaykin days and was not as bad as a lot of fans said. Sales were slipping however and Chaykin was being brought back in. The last few issues were not their best work, but none as bad as this final one.

The writing was bland and kind of there as DeMatteis tried to tie up all the loose ends he had set up. What would have been a below average issue was dragged to the depths of awfulness by the "artwork." Mark Badger couldn't have pencilled and inked a worse issue if he had tried (and I'll be generous enough to give the benefit of doubt and say that he DIDN'T try very hard). I tried to go through the issue in order to say when it went bad (like "the last four pages were awful"), but it was ALL OF THEM and there aren't even any that make it up to the "kinda decent I suppose" level. The letters were just there and nothing special.

The only one who seemed to put any kindof extra effort into their job was the colorist. There are three colored stripes on the uniforms of the Rangers. Most of the time Badger didn't even bother to draw the lines where the stripes go. The colorist made sure that they were there.

Rick Oliver must have really not cared about ending this run with any dignity because he's the editor who signed off on some of the most amateurish artwork ever to be printed.

Even the cover by Chaykin himself was pretty bad.

This was a bad issue all around.
