As a kid who grew up on roleplaying games and '80s horror, sci-fi and action flicks, there's nothing I love more than a good mashup. In 1986, writer Gordon Derry and artist Denis Beauvais created a cosmic, magic-fueled mashup about a group of five guardians from different realities who protect the Grid, a nexus that connects them all.
The new Warlock 5 series will be written by Cullen Bunn and Jimmy Johnston, with art by Jeffrey Edwards and colors by Andy Poole. Here's the synopsis:
Five touchstone realities exist at focal points along the Grid. From each of these realities, a Warlock is chosen to act as one of five Guardians. Savasthar, a shapeshifting dragon-like being. Doomidor, a warlord from the Dark Ages. Argon, an advanced cybernetic organism from a techno-hell.
Tanith, an ageless sorceress. Zania, a power-mad, machine gun necromancer. Together, the Warlocks protect the Grid, thereby protecting all of space and time. They are the last line of defense against the awful forces of chaos that lurk in the darkness outside the Grid.
There’s only one problem.
They hate each other.
