Sword and Sorcery Week! Greetings from Skartaris: "Lair of the Snowbeast!" by Grell

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! It's SWORD AND SORCERY WEEK, and what better way to kick it off than with another timeless tale featuring Travis Morgan aka The Warlord! This time, Travis, Mariah, and Machiste are in for one whopper of a violent version of Beauty and the Beast! Not only that, but this is the issue in which Travis gets his loin-cloth outfit (but only after he spends a couple'a pages fighting a Sasquatch-type character in the buff --both of 'em, actually, but the Big Foot at least has plenty of fur)! It's an action-epic with heart, and more of Iron Mike Grell's ground-breaking storytelling style! Go back with us to Warlord #9 (July 1977) to visit the..."Lair of the Snowbeast"!


  1. Where is Warlord #8?

    1. Would you believe I skipped it to give y'all the feel of how difficult it was to get complete runs of mags back in the Groovy Age? Would you believe I skipped ish #8 to see who was paying attention (you're the only one who mentioned it, btw)? Would you believe I goofed? Don't tell anyone--let's see who says something like "I was wondering why you skipped #8" when I do post it... ;D

    2. LOL! you are soooo mean to us ! ;)

  2. Fore easy navigation, here is a link to Groove's post of the next issue, WARLORD 10, cover-dated Jan 1978:
