After recent events that saw many in Skartaris come to distrust the Warlord, Morgan has decided to hold a conference and invite members from each city to attend so that everyone’s differences can be worked out. He also hopes that it signals the return of his beloved Tara and that things between them can go back to normal. On another front, Michael Fleisher continues to chronicle the ongoing adventures of Power Girl and Jennifer Morgan who aim to stop the demon Azmykon from assembling his staff of power. Should it be completed, Skartaris will face one of the most dangerous threats in its history. Their battle with the demon takes them across the country and they soon face off for the final piece of the mystical artifact which finally sees them triumphant, though a little worse for wear. What will be most intriguing is if Power Girl should decide to stay in Skartaris and become a supporting character going forward. She would add quite a unique dynamic to the book, but one that would stand out and ultimately not fit due to her power set. Everyone else, except perhaps for Jennifer, are just normal people and while they might not live in a normal world, Power Girl would change everything. Be that as it may, it has been interesting seeing Fleisher tie Power Girl to Arion and Arion/Atlantis to modern Skartaris though if it goes any farther than that still remains to be seen. Now that Tara is back home and it looks as if things might be on the mend, you have to wonder how long it will take Machiste to come around and truly forgive Morgan. This was a nice interlude by Fleisher and company, a very dramatic one with a good dose of action on the side and one that will most likely pave the way towards whatever journey Morgan will find himself on next.
