Later, they discovered the Valley of Mists, where dinosaurs ruled and the human inhabitants had devolved into cave men Axa was almost lobotomized, but was saved by Mark Ten , a robot programmed to love her. She and an unwilling Jason took Robot Mark with them when they left, having united the scientists and the cave dwellers in a common cause.
Axa and Jason, though, finally parted company in the City of Hope formerly Las Vegas , a gambling town which Jason stayed on to run after Axa defeated its sadistic ruler, Mr Nero. Axa found a new beau in former gladiator Dirk, who traveled on with her and Mark. An encounter with the crazed, blind nature worshiper Joy Eden and her elemental creations in Seventh Heaven ended with Mark badly damaged, his circuits corroded by acid, lurching off into the fog after trying to kill Axa, while the woman warrior saw a less pleasant side to Dirk when the pair fell in with pirates and Dirk willingly joined them in robbing the coastal settlements of the Fisher People.

I have always liked fast cars. My sons have inherited the same tendency; one of my sons has sports Audi.
We have always preferred sports cars compared to classical. This is a sort of relaxation for me, when I want to break drawing.
There are no details in the background. When I was drawing a car for Modesty, Peter had sent to me a small model of this car he wanted in the story, so I could orient better. It was a very rare car. I find even more interesting secondary characters than cars. What do you think how many autobiographical elements are present in your characters?

No matter, female or male characters… EBR: All super heroes are based on me! This character had to be in the car driving around. Automatically and non-intentionally I have drew this person with black mustaches and cap. Then I have realized that I really put myself into it. Probably every comic book artist have to plunge into the story and character, at least I do it that way.
EBR: At the beginning of our collaboration I did regular trips to London in order to talk in person with him about details in plot and so.
Unfortunately, we talked through the assistance of translator. Then, Peter would sent me material with additional explanations of the scenes, in order to help me the growth of the character, and after the translation phase I would sent him back everything.
