Black and White Wednesday: "Etran to Fulsing" by Cuti and Giordano

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Today's minor masterpiece comes from Creepy #94 (cover-dated January 1978), and it's a doozy! Written by Nick Cuti with art by Dick Giordano, "Etran to Fulsing" grabs you right away and makes you think this is some sort of pint-sized Prince Valiant riff--but then it knocks you upside the head with it's Twilight Zone-ish ending. It's a lovely, bittersweet piece created by two of the best at the tops of their respective games. Ol' Groove digs it. I'm sure you will, too!
