Morgan currently lies helpless in the tentacles of a man-eating plant when the man from an alternate dimension, Scarheart, helps him out.  He was not going to at first, but as Morgan saved him, one good turn deserves another.  The two soon set off to find the black unicorn, the beast that has infected not only Shakira, but Jennifer and now Morgan as well and without it, things might end up being fatal for the three of them.  New writer Cary Burkett continues to put Morgan through his paces while also introducing him to a new friend, or at least a man who is not really an enemy which is just about the same thing.  Burkett makes it a lot of fun and he continues to perpetuate the same vibe that Grell started all those many years ago.  There is a fair amount of action and it would not be a Warlord tale if it did not, so it was good seeing Morgan and Scarheart as they make their way across the land looking for the strange and mythical beast that might hold the cure to what ails them all.  Of course, being an ongoing title, it would be silly if they killed off the main character and so a cure is eventually found, just not in the way that you expected when the book started out.  It would have been nice to see a little more from Shakira, but as she was essentially on her death-bed it is understandable.  There is still one person missing from the title, that being Tara.  It is hopeful that she makes a return and we find out just what it is she has been doing in the time that everyone has been away.  There are also a few other plot threads that have been left dangling, namely that of Morgan’s son and if they should ever be reunited.  Come the end of this second issue by Burkett and Dan Jurgens, it is found to be a good one, both entertaining and enjoyable.
