Susan is worried about Johnny because he's happy-go-lucky, womanizing and drinking. Sue, Johnny' been like that since 1962.

We are shown a two-pager of the good times.

As the issue comes to a close one of those gateways Richards keeps in the Baxter starts allowing unwanted guests.

Metallic gargoyles? Doesn't look so bad. The FF can handle this.
