Writer and artist Mike Grell was back at the helm for the return of DC's greatest sword and sorcery hero - Travis Morgan, the Warlord. During its late 1970s heyday, the title had been one of DC's best sellers. The new series followed on from the end of Grell's original run, ignoring 2006's attempt at a reboot. Opening with a new group of explorers finding their way to the lost world of Skartaris, the action soon reintroduced Travis and his trusted sidekick Shakira, as the Warlord became involved in helping his old friend Machiste retake the entire Shadow Kingdom. Joe Prado provided the interior art, with Mike Grell producing the covers and script.
