Batman and Warlock

Marvel's cosmic line has been in the spotlight again in the past few years, due to the talents of writers like Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.  This is a good thing because they have such a strong stable of space-faring characters - The Inhumans, The Guardians of the Galaxy, The Annihilators, and of course, Warlock.   I have liked Adam Warlock ever since I stumbled onto an issue of his self titled series as a kid.  The Jim Starlin artwork on that gave it a sleek, modern look that set it apart from most comics of the day.  Hopefully, fans of the new cosmic stories will seek out his earlier adventures.

The Countdown to the All-New Lost Issues Title has begun! 7 days left until the big change on December 26th... stay tuned!

Dave sez,

Merry Christmas, Ross!
The first time I saw Adam Warlock was Infinity Gauntlet. Very cool mini-series.

Can't wait to see what The Lost Issues looks like on Monday! It's gonna feel like a second Christmas!

Heh. My first Warlock story was Marvel Two-in-One Annual #2.

I'm old.

Technically, my first Warlock story was FF#66. I saw him as Warlock in Strange Tales #181 and was hooked. I worked backwards for a few years, then followed his resurrection, but burned out during Infinity Watch. Odd that you chose 1978 trade dress, the year after he 'died'.
