Summary: In 2319, two centuries after the nuclear war, people in domed cities have survived and developed new isolated cultures. In one, at age thirty, citizens having reached their Lastday must participate in Carousel for their chance at renewal, or become runners from society and its Sandmen. Logan was a Sandman, but his Lastday arrived early and he ran. He found Jessica who told him about the myth of Sanctuary. Running together to find it, they befriend the cyborg REM, but are still pursued by Logan's former partner, Francis.

Summary: Logan, Jessica, and REM, drive to a lush valley and meet a girl picking berries. She reveals she is telepathic, and takes them to the Master in the Big House.

Reawakening

Summary: An earthquake exposes a buried museum. Its caretaker welcomes Logan and Jessica inside and shows them stuffed animal specimens from before the War. He thinks they're the progeny of citizens who left Earth in a spaceship to escape the War and have returned to repopulate it. When Francis arrives, the caretaker sees the anger in him and Logan and condemns their killing ways as the cause of the War in the first place. Not wanting to face it again, he lies down and dies. Logan stuns Francis, while evading his kill blast, then fires at the rock face to rebury the museum.

Sunrise.... Moonset

(eight-page comic feature)
Still running from Francis, the trio encounters a village of Samurai soldiers who think they are "Raiders". Rem notices that the Samurai are androids. They have a strict no firearms policy which leaves Logan defenseless, but also saves him from Francis.

Depths of Terror

(Story feature)
Driving through a long tunnel, Logan stops when he sees a pit dug in the road. The three get out to investigate and see spikes in the bottom of the pit, with a skeleton impaled on them. They walk a bit further and find a doorway to a long, descending set of stairs. Down and down they go, but as they near the bottom, something knocks them into the cavern below, where huge spiders bite them and spin them into their web. When they wake from the venom, a hunched little man says his pets captured them, and will eat them. Rem announces that he's just been playing along until they woke up, the venom didn't affect him and he is strong enough to easily break the webs. He grabs Logan's blaster, but his programming won't let him kill the spiders, or any life form. After a brief internal struggle, he instead fires at the floor creating a large pit. As the spiders rush toward him, they fall into the pit. Their master, anguished about losing his pets, hurls himself into it too.
