I think these types of comics brought about the 1990s decline. The market became swamped with similar looking comics. The art was ok but the plots were confusing and convoluted crossing many titles in Malibu’s “Ultraverse”. Despite many fans and sales figures that today would be considered very respectable, once Marvel had taken over Malibu the end was quickly in sight. The best thing you could say about them was the state-of-the-art digital colouring which made the Marvel and DC books of the time with their flat garish colours look feeble in comparison.
