And Then I Read: WARLORD 12 & 13

Well, I guess I don’t really need spoilers, as it’s all there on the cover above, but if you haven’t read WARLORD 12 yet, you might want to skip this review.

Mike Grell handles script and art for that issue, as he gives Travis Morgan a nice sendoff, allowing Travis’ son to inherit the role of The Warlord. Whether Travis will stay dead is another matter, this being comics, but for now, the old order passeth, time for new blood, and that’s where issue 13 begins. And when a large meteor (or small asteroid) enters Skartaris through the polar opening (talk about an unlucky shot) and makes a devastating impact, Joshua, the new Warlord, has a mission to investigate, with reports of destruction and newly unleashed monsters to spur him on. I’m interested to see how things go with this storyline, and will be reading. Recommended.

    I was a HUGE fan of the original Warlord series written and drawn by Mike Grell back in the day and even bought two of every issue (and got my sister to do the same) since I was convinced at the time they would become unsung masterpieces and highly-sought-after collectibles down the road. Well, I may have been wrong about that, but I still treasure them all the same. Haven’t read or bought any of the more recent series though, mainly since they’re not drawn by Grell, even if they’re done “in his style”. Do you think they’re worth my hard-earned money?

    Some of the later issues in the first 12, including 12 ARE drawn by Grell, and he’s just as good as ever, so I think you’d enjoy them. The writing on the first few is a little rough in spots, but on the whole, it’s a fine new series.
