David Michelinie’s pen and Ernie Chan’s pencils and inks provided the magic for this fantasy series that introduced Claw the Unconquered, a barbaric outlander with a deformed claw-like right hand. The appendage, often covered in a crimson gauntlet, had been afflicted by a generations old curse – that Claw roamed the lands of Pytharia to end. Of course, that meant doing away with evildoers and despots in the process, including the ruler who murdered Claw’s father, Prince Occulas of the Yellow Eye. Claw the Unconquered bravely made a total of 12 issues before it could not stave off the hand of cancellation.
