The Fall of Nikki Harris, Part 3: “Take the Long Way Home”

The long-running, independent, sci-fi/space fantasy/adventure/humor comic book, The Adventures of Nikki Harris the Cybermation Witch, has released a “final issue.”  When last we saw her, Nikki Harris (cybermation witch and sci-fi heroine) had plunged into the Voyd beast-god, Gar-Lahk.

The Adventures of Nikki Harris the Cybermation Witch #12 (“Take the Long Way Home”) reveals that flying into the maw of the alien deity, Gar-Lahk, did not have the effect Nikki desired.  Nikki, however, is nothing if not resourceful, but her new plan may mean the end of her.  Can Nikki's colleague, Berzing, convince Nikki not risk time and space in order to destroy Gar-Lahk?

THE LOWDOWN:  So the Adventures of Nikki Harris the Cybermation Witch comic book series has come to an end.  Or shall I say conclusion?  It was a blast, and this series is worthy of being missed.  Nikki Harris #12 is quite entertaining, and I can always use the word “entertaining” to describe this series.

Once upon a time, women in science fiction, comic books, and even horror movies served coffee and sandwiches to the male heroes (as they did in Howard Hawks/Christian Nyby's 1951 film, The Thing from Another World).  If Nikki Harris were Wilma Deering, she would take over the Buck Rogers comic strip.  Although Nikki likes fashion like the early version of Sue Storm, I do not see Nikki fretting over which is better, stallion of the sea, Prince Namor, or brainy WWII vet, Reed Richards.  If she were Sue, I think that Nikki would fight one and out-think the other.

No, Nikki is Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, walking into a room full of men who have helped bring the world to the brink and thinking that she is every bit their equal and honestly, their superior.  She is Princess Leia, the true leader of the Rebel Alliance, even before she received the title, “General.”

Carter Allen has only scratched the surface of Nikki in his delightful, throwback comic book, The Adventures of Nikki Harris the Cybermation Witch.  And Nikki is bold enough to help him do the scratching if he can't figure it out on his own.  So let's enjoy this end until the next beginning...

I READS YOU RECOMMENDS:  Readers looking for humorous science fiction comic books can follow The Adventures of Nikki Harris the Cybermation Witch.
