Warlock v1 #13, 1976 - A malevolent entity is intent on extinguishing the stars. Warlock discovers that he emanates from the mind of a hospital patient on Earth. Jim Starlin does a terrific job drawing the far reaches of space, but his depiction of an ordinary hospital room is more intriguing. The artist introduces Barry Bauman on page 10, a man devoid of his five senses but wielding formidable mental powers. Window blinds cast diagonal shadows across his bed and face, suggesting his physical "prison". Steve Leialoha brings a sensitive polish to the pencils, though it appears Starlin may have inked the final splash page. This story was first reprinted in Warlock v2 #4. This is number 5 of 7 Warlock issues with Starlin art and/or covers.
