The Omega Men lead a rebel takeover of the planet Slagg, then move on to Broot’s home world, Changralyn. This early direct-only outing from the team of Roger Slifer, Keith Giffen and Mike DeCarlo seems more interested in delivering gore than character building.
A powerful young man is on a quest to avenge his parents against Hyssa, the tyrannical lizard king. A typical blast of Bronze Age goodness from Jack “King” Kirby, who never got the chance to further develop this world.
Lois Lane finds herself with a rival for Superman’s affection: a sentient, alien tree with erotic dreams of world domination. Yes, you read that right. Cary Bates, Werner Roth and Vince Colletta’s kitschy concoction makes for a fun lead story.
On the anniversary of his parents’ murder, Batman visits Crime Alley – and the kind woman who comforted the orphaned Bruce Wayne. A strong if simple story from legendary Batwriter Denny O’Neil, with gorgeous art from Dick Giordano.
Air Force pilot Travis Morgan ejects from a crashing SR-71 – to discover the hidden, savage world of Skartaris! The Warlord – writer/artist Mike Grell’s most enduring creation – proves to have that “it” thing right out of the gate.
