A new generation of the Strikeforce team suffers a tragic blow during its showdown with Countessa Del Marco. A not-quite-ready-for-prime-time outing from future pros Fred Schiller and Tom Morgan.
When winged dinosaurs make off with Mariah, Travis Morgan and Machiste pursue them to a city in the sky. Mike Grell’s passion for the material makes this one a winner.
Moro Frost “dies” in World War II, but the Scorpion lives on to battle the Golden Fuhrer in 1975. Not horrible, but this revamp by Gabriel Levy and Jim Craig pales in comparison to Howard Chaykin’s version of the Scorpion.
The Legion holds their own against the Servants of Darkness, but the Master enslaves three billion superpowered reinforcements. The penultimate chapter of “The Great Darkness Saga,” from the classic Legion team of Paul Levitz, Keith Giffen and Larry Mahlstedt.
The Micronauts appear to take heavy losses as they clash with Baron Karza’s Dog Soldiers over the Acroyear homeworld, Spartak. A fast-paced and particularly brutal outing from the Micronauts creative team of Bill Mantlo, Michael Golden and Al Milgrom.
Officers Dave Greenberg and Bob Hantz bust petty crooks and red-light runners. Based on a 1974 movie, there’s not much super to these stories by Marv Channing, Gray Morrow, Frank Thorne and others.
Travis Morgan returns to Skartaris with new ally Mariah, only to find one of his old allies possessed by a demonic weapon. Writer/artist Mike Grell seems to get better each issue, with Warlord quickly evolving into a special series
When an eccentric financier goes missing, the Scorpion gets pulled into a case plagued by voodoo and zombies. Another fun pulp adventure from writer/artist Howard Chaykin (with the help of a few famous friends!)
The Legionnaires attempt to make a stand against the Servants of Darkness on The Sorcerers’ World. “The Great Darkness Saga” rolls on with another excellent chapter from Paul Levitz, Keith Giffen and Larry Mahlstedt.
The Micronauts flee Earth and end up on Acroyear’s homeworld – and under attack from the forces of Baron Karza! This return home to the Microverse bodes well for this sci-fi series, which remains under the guidance of writer Bill Mantlo and penciler Michael Golden.
