From heroes dressed in uniforms of warriors postapocalittici, for once, stop complete their strong and tight leather and fur, with a lot of coats, to wear clothes more modern, and contemporary, perhaps more conventional, at least for our times. The design is certainly interesting, but flipping through the pages of the magazine, despite the excellent results both graphically and completely original idea, one is a bit 'confused.
