WARLOCK #3-7 (1973)

As much as I really liked issues #1 and 2 of this series, which established the idea of a “counter Earth” where Warlock could attempt to guide the development of humankind away from war, these issues aren’t very good.  They mostly exist to say, “Look how cool it is that on Counter-Earth, Reed Richards and Victor Von Doom also exist but they’re in opposite roles!”  It’s actually a bit like the Ultimate Universe.  Good ideas, but not great execution.  It feels clumsy and plodding.

But I have to give an above average rating for the concepts.  Gil Kane’s art is pretty good, too, but it’s not his best work.

Creators: Mike Friedrich and Gil Kane (#3-5), Bob Brown (#6-7)

Grade: C+
