Gold Digger Color Remix Issue 4
While Armageddon stands around bwahahahahing down in Atlantis.
Gina uses the lull in the action and the 24 hour deadline to formulate a plan to counteract the nefarious and dastardly and just plain no good Gyphon.
They involve flowers.
And the solution comes with almost insultingly comical ease.
Meanwhile, Brittany nearly puts Strype into traction during a training exercise and Strype feels somewhat inadequate compared to her. Though does manage to get on well with her father, doctor\ professor Diggers.
Whom seems to like Strype more, then previous suitors.
Eventually to deal with Gyphon and his dastardly plans, the Diggers sisters and Strype have to travel to the garden of Eden, to harvest the flowers they need.
But there are guard dogs, literal guard dogs in the form of werewolves.
things once again go downhill from there

And Armageddon still does nothing ! ( Even though he has set an ultimatum to have the princess and her allies brought before him for nefarious ends ! And a million dollars. )
But this time that's alright, because that's the joke.
It's not so much as an apocalypse as the slowest moving apocalypse. The crapocalypse, as it were, which gets taken out in the most ridiculously hilarious way possible.
Death by flowers from the garden of Eden !
No, Armageddon isn't the real threat here.
..Issue 3 could have made that more clear.
Nor is he the real focus, the characters sleep through the whole crisis and don't seem to be in a real hurry to deal with Gyphon's latest little trick.
And it gets more and more ridiculous, which is the point, because this is a humor series and issue 4 really drives that point home.
Instead we see Gina's father Theodore Diggers and delve more in to Brittany's obsession with Strype, as well as Strype's doubts about this relationship.
Which is an good idea to put the brakes on it a bit, because things have gone so fast and so hard that Brittany honestly seems a bit overbearing and desperate through out.
I am going to suck every bit of tension out of this right now.
After this minor wave, Strype makes his mind up and those two will never ever waver again.
The highpoint of the comic however is the introduction of the two werewolves, Jetta and her husband Thabain and the absolutely bone crunching fight that follows. Where Gina, Strype and Brittany are outclassed and overmatched and still manage to hold their own, if barely.
The two werewolves even have a reason to be there, to be literal guard dogs of the garden of Eden and they perceived Brittany as a threat.
Jetta's zeal was a bit off putting though.
Armageddon continues his crapocalypse and it ends it the most hilariously ridiculous way possible.
Gyphon's death by flowers as he bwahahahah's his way to victory.
Brittany threatens to tear up Gina's pin ups and Jetta wonders w y her husband, never picks her flowers while they live in the garden of Eden.
Absolutely brilliantly ridiculous.
Issue 2 was slightly off, issue 3 is a misstep, but issue 4 redeems the series to it's former gloriously silly self, with an amazing action scene to boot.
And finally the original 1993 cover from Comicvine
