When a mute, blind orphan witnesses a murder, local thugs again come to blows with Ragman. Another excellent offering from Robert Kanigher and the Redondo Studio, though the art is better executed than the story this time out.
A hostage situation forces Luke Cage to come after Misty Knight – something that doesn’t sit too well with Iron Fist. Changing social mores make this one a bit tone deaf today, but it’s hard to go wrong with the creative team of Chris Claremont and John Byrne.
The trio of Warlord, Machiste and Mariah attempt to retrieve the Mask of Life from the Tower of Fear. More fantasy tropes served up with style by Bronze Age auteur Mike Grell.
Separated from his companions and bleeding out in the snow, Warlord finds aid from an unexpected source. Another fun-if-unoriginal outing from writer/artist Mike Grell.
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.
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
Morgan and Tara learn the secret history of Skartaris – but a forgotten subway might make it all for not! Another greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts outing from Warlord creator Mike Grell.
Legionnaires marooned on an icy asteroid wonder if rescue will come before supplies – and hope – run out! Writer Paul Levitz starts to mine the rich characterization that would be a hallmark of his and Keith Giffen’s Legion run.
Trying to catch their breath in the Everglades, the Micronauts instead encounter the smoldering touch of the Man-Thing! Writer Bill Mantlo ups his game a bit this issue, but the art – from Michael Golden and Josef Rubinstein – isn’t as strong as previous outings.
Morgan’s legion lays siege to the city of Thera in an effort to earn freedom – and rescue Tara from Deimos. The story is a bit rushed and the art a bit scratchy, but, overall, creator Mike Grell delivers another Warlord winner.
