Greetings from Skartaris: "Holocaust" by Grell and Rubinstein

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Mike Grell's Warlord is back on the Diversions! We're celebrating the return of Ol' Groove's favorite Groovy Age DC creation with Warlord #15 (July 1978), which is a pretty spectacular issue, lemme tell ya! It's the only 25 page DC Explosion/Implosion ish (due to its then bi-monthly status) and it is glorious! Joe Rubinstein inks this issue with those gorgeous, lush brush-strokes that have made him one of comics' top inkers ever...we get our hero's return to his wife Tara...the first appearance of Travis and Tara's son, Joshua...sci-fi action...and the return of Travis Morgan's greatest foe! Hang on for..."Holocaust!"


  1. You cannot follow everything. That said, Mike Grell's Warlord is one I wished I taken up. I had an aversion to Grell's art which has warmed over the decades, but this series really seems to have some depth. I have one trade of the earliest tales and that's it.

    Rip Off

    1. Mike Grell, in my opinion, had the misfortune to follow the immensely popular Dave Cockrum on the LSH. Although a good artist he paled in comparison to the one and only Mr. C. That's why I never warmed up to him as an artist. But I continued to buy his LSH and anything else he did such as Warlord.
