(P)Raising Kane: "Doorstep" by Laumer, Conway, Kane, and Sutton

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Check out this superior sci-fi shocker from Marvel's World's Unknown #2 (April 1973)! Adapting Keith Laumer's classic short "Doorstep" we have a trio of titanic talents who could wrangle twenty cents out of even the stingiest pockets: Gerry Conway, Gil Kane (natch), and Tom Sutton! Dig it!!


  1. Brilliant, as usual. Again, just shows that Kane was at home in all genres - in this case SF and war/military.
    Did he ever do any romance stories?

  2. This adaptation of Fredric Brown's "Arena" from WORLDS UNKNOWN #2 (penciled by John Buscema and inked by Dick Giordano) certainly qualifies as groovy:
