The Powernaut commits to touching the monstrous power object in this 
battle - right as Paula shows up again!  Powernaut 1992:  Romance and 
Death continues.



Bonus Section: 2005 Reprint Commentary from Wyatt Ferguson! Cartoon Violence

For a series so full of swords and axes, there's remarkably little 
blood.  There are a few possible explanations.  (1) Super-powered aliens 
don't bleed the same way we do.  (2) Good swordsmen make a point of not 
bleeding. (Just like good boxers make a point of not being hit.)  (3) 
Artistic license on the part of Powernaut Comics.  I've seen Marvel 
Comics show a lethal hole blown right through a hero, with no blood. 
Maybe it was cauterized.  But I'm inclined to say, cartoon violence.
