Women. Morgan’s only weakness. Especially those that are in trouble, for how can any man refuse a damsel in distress? So it is that he and Shakira are travelling through a town when such a woman appears, obviously in need and Morgan, who can never leave well enough alone, heads on over to help her out. Defeating the rogues who are assaulting her, she thanks him but begs him to leave. He informs her that if she is still in danger, then he will help her out until she is no longer so. Thus it is she tells him her troubles and how a mean old wizard has designs on her. Morgan hates wizards so there is no way he will let her fend for herself. This issue was pretty much the usual fare from Mike Grell, a story we have seen numerous times now up to this point. It is still a well-written and well-drawn tale; it is simply not as original as some of the previous stories. Also, in what was almost a filler issue, his old foe returns, almost random-like and is similarly defeated and hardly without a fight put up in defense. It was strange how that happened and how quick it was, and what it will mean going forward is a question left open. Will Deimos be back? More than likely as this cannot be the last we will ever see of him. A very standard, but strange issue of The Warlord.
