The Warlord, by Mike Grell

Mike Grell studied at the University of Wisconsin and the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. He entered the comics field in 1972, when he became an assistant to Dale Messick on 'Brenda Starr'. He moved to New York a year later, and started working for DC Comics on titles such as 'Aquaman', 'Green Arrow', 'Phantom Stranger', 'Batman' and 'The Legion of Super-Heroes'. He came up with his own creation, 'The Warlord', in 1976. It soon became DC's best-selling title. Mike Grell also created 'Starslayer' in 1978. He took over the 'Tarzan' Sunday newspaper strip in 1981, following in the footsteps of Hal Foster, Burne Hogarth and Russ Manning.

Mike Grell moved from northern Wisconsin to Idaho with his wife Sharon, where he still lives and works.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
