“The Warlord” is a comic character created by writer and artist Mike Grell, first introduced in DC Comics “First Issue Special #8” in 1974.
“Sword and sorcery” fantasy was in vogue at the time of the Warlord’s premiere, with DC’s rival Marvel Comics finding success with its interpretation of pulp author Robert E. Howard’s “Conan The Barbarian.” The Warlord titled his own comic for 133 issues, (1976-1988,) and has been featured in several revivals since.
“The Warlord” is United States Air Force pilot Travis Morgan. After flying through a hole in the North Pole, the Vietnam veteran finds himself in the magical “lost world” of Skartaris, where he becomes a freedom fighter, trained in combat by his future wife Tara.
