Warlord #4

In DC, Reviews by T. Andrew WahlLeave a Comment

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.

Moon-Boy remembers the fateful night that first brought him and Devil Dinosaur together as brothers. Jack Kirby’s last new series for Marvel isn’t as bad as its reputation, but it’s not that great, either.

While visiting the Nullport space station to pick up a new cruiser, the Legion uncover a Khundian plot. The lead feature, by Paul Levitz and Pat Broderick, is solid, but the real treat is a backup story that welcomes Keith Giffen to the 30th century.
