Warlock v1 #9, 1975 - This premiere issue takes over the numbering from the first series (Warlock #1-8), but picks up the storyline from Strange Tales #181. Warlock, Pip and Gamora encounter the all-powerful Magus for the first time. Jim Starlin, partially responsible for reviving the lead character, continues his impressive work. Intricately drawn panels reside within thoughtfully designed layouts. A silently sequenced countdown (see interior page below) is one of many well-paced scenes. The story culminates with the sudden arrival of Thanos. This story was later reprinted in Warlock v2 #2. This is number 1 of 7 Warlock issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Warlock issues. See also this blog's Starlin checklist or Top 10 Starlin comics.
