Written and Pencilled by Mike Grell; Inked by Vince Colletta (first story)
- The seventies super-heroine, technicolor racoon-eye make-up sported previous amongst Skartarian women appears again
- Ghedron wears more clothes than the usual Skartarian, but does garb himself in purple, the traditional color of comic book villainy.
This story is a sequel to Warlord #7, which showed Ghedron not disposing of the axe as instructed.
The title of this issue's main story likely comes from the 1971 Italian sword and sandals film of the same name.
