In the end hediscovers what it really means to be hero . but at what cost?"

The evil wizard Osyrus finallyhas the Princess in his grasp and only the Last Paladin can save her but todo that he must first overcome an ever greater obstacle... his alter ego Dr.Zack Machin.

"This third installment of THE LAST PALADIN will bring the current story toa close and set the stage for an all-new adventure in 2006," said Ascher."With issue #26 DWP celebrates its 4th anniversary and I consider it anhonor to be included with such a strong group of fellow creators for thisamazing issue.

"DREAH: FIGHT KNIGHT," by Sean Dulaney and Ryan Sergeant.

"Sarge's art on this story is going to blow folks away," said Dulaney. "Theywere raving about the art on EYE OF FIRE, but that was actually drawn backin the summer of '03. Everything he's learned, all the experience he'sgained since then shows on every page."
