Warlord (DC)

    (DC, 1976–1989)
™ and ©1976 DC Comics, Inc.

Skartaris is a world in and underneath Earth’s crust, ruled by a heroic warrior, former USAF pilot Travis Morgan. Short on fuel, Morgan crashed in this mythical world, eventually becoming the powerful Warlord. A magic mirror allows him to travel through time, and on our surface, having fantastic adventures. He is joined on those adventures by friends and fellow heroes Mariah, Machiste, Aton, Shakira, and Claw the Unconquered. Other characters who have appeared in the series, Arion, Lord of Atlantis, Arak, Son of Thunder, and Conqueror of the Barren Earth, eventually spun off into series of their own.

Rob Liefeld fans will be especially interested in Warlord #131, which features the artist’s first professional work in the comic book field.
