Black and White Wednesday: "Time Eater" by Butterworth and Neary

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Before super-star inker Paul Neary became partner-in-comix to super-star pencilers like Alan Davis and Brian Hitch, he was a pretty far-out penciler in his own right. His work for Warren's b&w mags was always top-notch, as the following piece, "Time Eater", written by Warren regular Jack Butterworth, proves. This was a heavy dose of sci-fi, baby, popular enough to be reprinted in summer 1979's Galactic War Comix number one-and-only (reprinted from Creepy #73).
