100 SCC Sketch Cards: #93 ADAM WARLOCK
ADAM WARLOCK, another 70s Marevl comics character and star of Jim Starlin's Magnum Opus gets the number 93 slot. When I got my first job and started visiting the Odyssey 7 comic shop in Manchester, Marvel and DC were reprinting entire runs of classic series like Neil Adam's stint on Deadman, Marshall Rogers's Detective Comics run and Jim Starlin's space-opera Warlock. It was and still is an incredible read, the story was huge taking in (literally) the whole of the Marvel Universe and introducing supporting characters like Gamora, Pip the Troll and The Magus. Unusually for a comic series it also came to a definite (if not lasting) close in two 'giant-sized' annuals co-starring the Avengers and the Thing.
Man, I might go and re-read them now...
