Published April 1973 / 36 pages / Last Gasp
After a pretty unlikely cover (when has a more advanced civilization not conquered the more primitive one? Come in peace, indeed) Greg Irons and Tom Veitch start off Slow Death #5 with a rib-tickling tale about an evil plot hatched in the bowels of the Last Gasp head office! Charles Dallas and Rand Holmes give us two interplanetary travel stories, which both conclude that Earth’s destruction appears inevitable, and Richard Corben closes with a futuristic hunting yarn warning about incompetent assistants who will get you killed, also the fact that most hunting is not merely shooting fish in a barrel, it can be a dangerous and competitive sport against big game, which is why it’s so exhilarating and why rich men spend millions to engage in safaris. Leftists also ignore the fact most safari game is raised for the purpose, like a field of wheat ready for harvest, meaning the animals wouldn’t even exist if it weren’t for sportsmen, some of the first and most conscientious conservationists in history. They actually understand the issues, unlike urban tree-huggers who know nothing about actual hunting or game management.
