ARAK (SON OF THUNDER) (DC) (1981) #8 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Arak #8
"Arena of the Black Pope" is written by Roy Thomas, Mike Barr and Ernie Colon. Art by Colon. Valda, the warrior woman, and Pope Hadrian have been taken captive by an albino race living in the catacombs under Rome. The descendants of heretics exiled from the Holy City years before remain angry and bitter. Their malice has evolved from grabbing young women from the surface-world for unwilling wives to kidnaping the Holy Father himself!

Into this world comes Arak, the Native American brave raised by Vikings. He raises his tomahawk in answer to the challenge thrown down by the leader of the exiles, the self-styled Black Pope. And with that courageous gesture, Arak is faced with a series of deadly foes. A white tiger, a massive gladiator and a chariot each take their turn to try to steal away our hero's life. But it's the Black Pope, not Arak, who rues the day in the end!
