Col. Luther Manning has been locked in a state of living death. He is no longer a man, but a mockery of a man. He has become an amalgam of reanimated flesh and computer circuitry, stripped of his family, his humanity - but not his will. He has become Deathlok the Demolisher - a weapon of war programmed solely for destruction. A challenging blend of science fiction and psychological war journal, Deathlok set the pace for anti-heroes in the turbulent post-Watergate '70s. Stories by Rich Buckler, Doug Moench, Bill Mantlo, David Anthony Kraft, Marv Wolfman, Mark Gruenwald, Ralph Macchio and J.M. DeMatteis.
