“Birds of Prey”
Writer & Artist: Mike Grell
Morgan and Shakira are zipping through the sky on the Titan’s flying disc when they are attacked by Hawkmen. The Hawkmen manage to capture Shakira and Morgan goes crashing into the forest on the damaged disc. Luckily for him the forest is inhabited by a village of dwarves. The dwarves are friendly and victims of the Hawkmen’s raids. Morgan finds out that the Hawkmen live in a giant nest high up on a giant tree. He climbs up and manages to rescue Sharkira and burn down the nest.
This story was a fun one. There was a lot of humor in this story. The dwarves brewed their own moonshine and it is powerful stuff. The look on Morgan’s face as his eyes start to water after drinking it is priceless. The moonshine comes in handy later as its used to burn the nest down. The dwarves are a fun bunch of cowards. Morgan also shows a loyalty to Shakira in coming to her rescue. Shakira is introduced as a very intriguing character. We get to see her cat side more in this story. She would rather burn to death than jump into the lake. Morgan forces her to jump and she is quite upset at the bath. A fun and enjoyable story.
