"Klarion isn't naturally heroic. He's not out to save the world or rescue anyone. He's a mischievous teenager who has done some bad things, but perhaps there's more to him. So what came to mind was an occult coming-of-age story. The high school years are a strange time of questioning, searching for direction, and rebellion. Klarion's on a reluctant quest to master sorcery and, hopefully, become one of the protectors the mystical universe." - Ann Nocenti

There are some artists who were ahead of their time, or at least the printing process involved in the production of their art. Art Adam's is one of them, as this story from 1986 proves.

This is very much a case in point, you can SEE the colouring and printing process mangling this tale to hell and back, and that's painful.

This story, has, to the best of my knowledge, never been collected or reprinted, which is a shame as it really deserves a modern re-colouring and printing if any does.

Ann Nocenti was the creator and writer on the series which made Art Adams a name to be recognised; "Longshot", the story of a sort of naive, well-meaning alien dealing with the real world and finding the likes of moral ambiguity frustrating. Here we see something quite similar, using another handy naive, well-meaning alien... One of my favourites!

Warlock! And Art Adams Warlock at that! )

DC have announced that Ann Nocenti will be taking over the writing duties on Green Arrow as of issue 7.

Ms Nocenti is quite the veteran in the comics industry. She was editor of the Uncanny X-Men and the original New Mutants run, as well as being a co-creator of a few characters you might be familair with; Typhoid Mary during her Dardevil tenure, and Longshot, Mojo and Spiral with Art Adams.
