The final battle between Travis Morgan, the Warlord and Deimos takes place in this issue.  While their armies rage against each other outside the castle, Morgan and Deimos face off one on one with only one man to be left standing.

Grell pulls out all the stops in this issue to give us some exceptional battle scenes between the two sides.  There is a lot of intricate work done by Grell to bring the battle to life and his pencils are stunning.  The showdown between the two archenemies is exciting, if short, and gives us a good display of the mastery Grell holds over human anatomy.  The only weak part of the book was the cartoonish looking demon that should have looked a little fiercer than it actually was.  The Scrolls of Blood, Deimos’s weapon against Morgan and company, have a simplistic, yet awesome sounding name.  What they actually turn out to be – even better!
