  1. Sounds like another winner from one of the best in the biz, Mike Grell! Issue #2 definitely seemed to slow down a bit but it sounds like the action and pacing once again took off here in issue #3. I really have to try to track this series down. I can't wait for part 4!

  2. i'll definitely be on the look out for Warlord #50 thanks for the heads it happens to be one of the Warlord back issues i never had. as for ROM, it seems that yet another layer of mystery may have been added to the licensing red tape aggravation. back to Mike Grell and back issues, i didn't mention before that i used have the first issue of the 1988 Green Arrow ongoing series that sprang from the Long Bow hunters mini-series. that was back when every 1st issue of a series was a "collector's item". i was doing a little research this morning only to find out on DC's wikia page that Green Arrow series went on for 137 issues and that Oliver Queen died in issue #101.
