At long last Travis Morgan, The Warlord, arrives in Shamballah with his friends Machiste and Mariah.  True to form for the title though, not all is well within the city as they are attacked before even reaching it by some sort of lasers.  People are fleeing the city, but when Morgan learns Tara is there, he races to her side as fast as he can.  When there, he learns he has a son but there is no time for relaxation as everyone is still in danger and Morgan knows just where it is coming from.  A good issue from Grell and a conclusion to the long running storyline that sees Morgan finally reach Tara after many trials and travails.  This book also seems to feature a conclusion to the Atlantean storyline with the destruction of the machinery underneath Shamballah, but only time will tell if it is truly so.  Deimos makes a return heralding the start of a new storyline and leaving the book on a cliff-hanger, hooking the reader to make sure they come back for more.  The artwork is still a strong highlight of the book being detailed, strong and incredibly beautiful to look at most times.  Fun and exciting stuff.
