The Warlord #37 - Jim Starlin art

The Warlord v1 #37, 1980 - Omac begins as a back-up feature, picking up where Jack Kirby's first series left off. Jim Starlin, artist and writer, adds more details to the hero's origin and introduces a newly revised costume. Most of the story is narrated by an alien named Quair, recalling events leading up to the present day. The format results in mostly repetitive nine panel layouts. Still, these are largely offset by Starlin's engaging pencils, nicely delineated by inker Joe Rubenstein. Other artists in this issue include Mike Grell and Vince Colletta. This is number 1 of 3 Warlord issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Warlord issues. See also this blog's Jim Starlin checklist or Top 10 Starlin comics.
