Gravely wounded during a battle with pirates, Warlord is nursed back to health by a mythical creature under the sea. This simple story offers surprising depth, from the team of writer/artist Mike Grell and inker Vince Colletta.
Warlord must cross blades with his own son, who has been prematurely aged and is under the control of Deimos. This concluding chapter of Mike Grell’s latest storyline is solid but should pack more emotional punch.
Warlord and friends make their way to Deimos’ fortress, where the sorcerer holds Morgan and Tara’s son captive. Mike Grell’s Bronze Age mainstay (inked poorly by Vince Colletta) has settled into a consistent, serviceable rhythm.
A magically induced storm causes Tara to crash, leaving her and Warlord at the mercy of a savage horde. Mike Grell’s classic swords-and-sorcery series loses a some of its magic thanks to Vince Colletta’s mismatched inking.
Tara and Morgan escape a carnivorous dinosaur but soon find themselves captured as breeding stock for a dying alien race. Mike Grell’s story is a bit of a mess – but not compared to Vince Colletta’s inking.
Tara and Morgan seek refuge from the great desert in the halls of Timgad, the Citadel of Sorcerer Kings. Tried-and-true fantasy material gets a fresh visual-storytelling treatment from writer/penciler Mike Grell.
Tara and Morgan set off to rescue their son but soon end up sidequesting to capture the Eye of Shakakhan. Divisive Vince Colletta joins the creative team as Mike Grell’s popular Warlord series goes monthly.
