ENDWORLD #27 CHICAGO RUN


CHICAGO RUN


When one of his men headed to Chicago for revenge, Blade and two other Warriors followed to rescue him. But after battling murderous raiders and Technic patrols, they needed help, too. Their only hope to save their missing comrade--and themselves--was to join the rebels' fight to annihilate the Technics before they wiped out the entire city.


AMBUSHED


A twig snapped loudly to the west.

Blade heard it and shifted, his back to Geronimo, his finger on the Commando's trigger. Was it coincidence? Or was someone trying to catch them in a pincer attack?

"I make out three on this side," Geronimo whispered.

A moment later Blade spied four figures darting from tree to tree 30 yards off, drawing the net tighter. "Four over here," he reported.

"How did they know where we were?" Geronimo wondered.

"Doesn't matter," Blade said. "If they charge, waste them."

No sooner did the words clear his mouth than a series of bloodcurdling shrieks rent the night and the phantoms closed in.
