While on his way to visit Lila Cheney, Guido runs into the Blob at Dulles International Airport. The two fight throughout the airport, but the Blob is eventually able to escape and force his way into an airplane. After discovering that the plane doesn’t have enough fuel to take him to St. Croix, he demands that the pilot land and refuel. When he sees Guido on the tarmac, .the Blob takes over the controls and tries to use the plane to run over him. Guido grabs the front tire of the plane and uses his mutant power to absorb the impact. The two fight on the runway, as leaking jet fuel is ignited by exposed wires. The resulting explosion knocks out the Blob. Guido maintains consciousness until he’s interviewed by a local reporter.
I Love the ‘90s
Guido calls an airport employee “Beavis” when he steers his truck towards a gasoline tanker. He later refers to his fight with the Blob as “doin’ the Achey-Breaky”.
It’s self-contained filler that reads like something that would normally be in an annual. The art isn’t bad, but it’s a very thin story that tries to rely on Guido’s humor to get by. Unfortunately, pretty much all of Dezago’s jokes just aren’t funny, and the excessive narration on every single page gets old quickly. The quality of some of the spin-offs really seems to be deteriorating around this time.
