Dragonfly #8 manhandled, peril

Categories PerilPhysical KO

#8 is the last issue of Dragonfly. Her saga never gets the finishing touches it needs. Following the murderous death of her alter ego, Nancy Arazello, she finds herself in some kind of "limbo" place between real existence and non-existence. Some kind of guide takes her around and shows her how to visit other places. She goes through some kind of portal and enters another reality where she discovers she no longer has any superpowers, she is simply an ordinary female in a costume. Some barbarian thugs living in this place manhandle her and threaten to kill her as the storyline ends. We are left hanging as to what happens next. Back on earth, a friend of hers hears Ken, Nancy's boyfriend, admit he killed Nancy acting in his alter-ego, Psiborg. The friend smacks Ken upside his head only to have Psiborg appear and KO her. Obviously the storyline needs a lot of finishing up, but this is the last issue. Bill Black writes a letter to his customers explaining why he is discontinuing this popular series -- it is because Rik Levins, Dragonfly's creator, insists on 100 percent of the profits from her sale, and will not renegotiate his terms, so Bill's company (AC Comics) can no longer afford to publish this book. Copy of the letter is shown below. It is the only letter of its kind I know of in comic book history. Dragonfly was always a fun read, and we miss her.
