Drowned by Women

"As Terry grew up, he had less need of Pat, but more interest in the fascinating women who have always populated Caniff's work. Normandie Drake, April Kane, Burma, and of course, The Dragon Lady. The latter, one of comics' all-time greatest female villains, had a complex and unpredictable relationship with the strip's heroes. She was capable not only of seducing, humiliating, or attempting to murder them, but also, to help him overcome a case of pre-date jitters, teaching Terry how to dance."
"Other bits of darkness fell out of the shadows. More knights, wrapped in masklin and cloak, appeared. They fared no better than the first, seeming to come apart at the seams. Limbs dropped away, bloodless but dead. Innards burst, pouring in tortuous loops from bellies. One knight collapsed in on himself as if his bones had suddenly jellied. Horrified, Tylar fell back. What deadly Grace was at work here? He found his back pressed to the mortared stone of a burned-out structure. He huddled into a doorway's alcove, seeking refuge inside, but the entrance was boarded tight. Trapped, his eyes widened, seeking any clue, any answer to the slaughter."
