Quadrant Publications owned by Peter Hsu published Quadrant or Peter Hsu’s Quadrant a vehicle for his creation “Hellrazor”. It also showcased Hsu’s other creations “Sleazoids” and Spacelab, plus stories: Steve LeBlanc’s “The Girl Who Could See Tomorrow”( Quadrant 7); “ The Love Of A Good Woman by Mark Shainblum and Gabriel Morrissette, (Quadrant 2)“The New Flying Tigers” by Dave Darrigo and Rick Taylor (Quadrant 6)  and “The Human Factor” by the cousins Mel and Rick Taylor (Quadrant 4 & 5). These stories are quite unlike the main feature. Indeed, Rick’s wife speculated that his students’ parents would not be happy if they knew their children’s teacher was being published in a raunchy magazine.

Quadrant took over “Elfwarrior” from Adventure Publications and published Elfwarrior 4 July 1988.
