Cary Burkett and Dan Jurgens outdo themselves on this issue as they tell two stories in tandem, one with the Warlord himself and the other with Tara. Travis Morgan is still trapped in the future while Tara is still in the Atlantean caves and both realize that if they do not do something soon, then all might be lost. So Tara and her men head out of the caves and battle their way back to their ship, taking it back from the New Atlanteans and manage to get themselves free. Morgan in the meantime is still heading up his little revolution and when things look like they are about to go sour, he and his men manage to overcome. In what is probably one of the most interesting endings to come out of this book is when Morgan is made President of the United States. Of course you have to read the book to find out how that comes about, but it is definitely something that was never expected and it calls into question the actions he may take next. Will Morgan stay in the future and guide the world into peace and prosperity or will he go back home to Tara? Morgan never liked being a monarch before so it is doubtful he would like being President and secondly, he made a promise to Tara and his people and he is not a man to go back on his word. Whatever Morgan decides should be captivating reading and though you can pretty much guess what he is going to do, it will be fun getting there. It was great to see Tara in action this issue as well as she just sort of seemed to be in a holding pattern, but with the Warlord’s absence she had to step up or submit to failure which for Tara is never an option. This was definitely one of the best issues of the Warlord produced thus far.
