By all rights I shouldn't have bought WARLORD. I wasn't into war stories, and it must purely have been the fact that it was a new comic I could collect from number one which appealed to me, rather than the theme of the comic itself. (It was the same with football: I was never into it, yet I bought SHOOT, SCORCHER, and SCORE when they first came out as well.) Launched in 1974, it survived until 1986, and inspired IPC to publish their own version, called BATTLE PICTURE WEEKLY.
Warlord was first though, so for all of you who bought it at the time, here's a little pictorial reminder of the debut ish to whisk you back to the days of your childhood faster than you can say "Hey, where did my life go?" Feel free to share any reminiscences in our ever-lovin' comments section.
