Badger, Ham, and Daisy head to a castle high in the Urals where Putin parades the reluctant scientists who found the mammoth, including the beautiful Vietnamese researcher Mavis, Badger risks Putin's wrath by springing her from his control. Putin considers himself a greater wizard than Ham, and will stop at nothing to acquire Badger's services. Or failing that, kill him. Standard cover by Badger fan-fave Bill Reinhold!
