It's been a number of years since I wrote that story and I never did see the art. It was at a point where Archie was no longer sending proof sheets to me. Which was a problem, because often I could correct mistakes before it went to press.
Many of the supporting cast in that story were based on real people that I worked with at the time. Gary Luben was a co-worker of mine. It was fun to see how Ayers portrayed him from the photo I sent him. It was truly an honor to have written stories about The Shield. He was a favorite of mine growing up. (Yeah, I'm old!) It's too bad the 10Down story never was done. I know Ayers had started on it. That was going to be a killer story. 10Down was a prison, 10 stories underground. The Shield's boss went there to interview a recently captured bad guy. This bad guy managed to override 10Down's computer system and many villains escaped into the place. The lights were now on emergency and guards were being wiped out, left and right.
The Shield arrives and after some problems descending into 10Down, manages to get into the place. I had created one villain that was extremely scary. You were supposed to see his eyes and outline, because he stayed in the darkened part of 10Down.
The Shield's lady boss almost ran into him and only the arrival of The Shield saved her.
Anyway, thanks for posting the story. It was a fun read, after all these years.
Regards,
Martin L. Greim
