The Adventurers (Book 1)

 ADB1   (Adventure, 1986-1987)

™ and ©1986 Adventure Comics, a division of Malibu Comics Entertainment

Following a brief introduction at Aircel, the Adventurers returned in this 1986 series at Adventure Publications, a division of Malibu. The title began by reprinting the first two Aircel issues. It then went on to complete the story “The Gate of Chaos” in which the heroes sought to retrieve the Keys of Telku for the evil lord Tarrus. In doing so, they had to overcome all manner of lethal traps, dread creatures, and dark sorcery.

Perhaps it was because their enemies were so great that they never really questioned what Tarrus meant to do with the keys. Those who lived would regret not having asked that question for a very long time…
