|The 1st time Steve Savage's face has graced a cover in over 15 years|
Waiting for the news, Savage blows a bunch of stuff up.
Attacked by a couple of German planes in the cliffhanger of last issue, Savage and his Spad make short work of his assailants. In between taking down enemy aircraft and exploding German observation balloons, Savage kills even more time with a couple of animals: a stallion, which allowed him to relive his youth in the Old West, and a lone eagle with whom he identifies with much more than with his Air Service comrades.

Though Steve Savage, The Balloon Buster would go on to guest in a handful more stories, this serial finale would be his very last appearance in a feature of his own.
