Brain Bolland: Short Science Fiction Story

Here's a science fiction story, written by J.M. DeMatteis and drawn by Brian Bolland. DC Comics published it in Madame Xanadu Special #1 in 1981. This was before Bolland began to become popular in the United States with the publication of Judge Dredd reprints and Camelot 3000 in 1982. The facial expressions in the story are what really stand out to me, particularly the alien's expression on the third panel of page two. Bolland packs a lot of emotion in an alien looking face, not an easy thing to do. The crowd scene on page 4 is a standout also, looks like some mayhem straight out of a Judge Dredd story.
