Random Reads: "Night Flight" by Englehart and Estrada

Check it out, Groove-ophiles! Did'ja know that back in 1977/78 when Stainless Steve Englehart was at DC making history with Batman in Detective Comics, the Justice League of America, Mister Miracle, and even Starfire, he also managed to slip in a sci-fi war tale featuring a certain ill-fated zeppelin? Well, he did! It was illustrated by Ric Estrada and published in Weird War Tales #60 (November 1977)! And heeeere it is!

  1. Single story issue. Rare for Weird War Tales. Too bad Ric Estrada wasn't finished by Wally Wood this time around.

  2. Excellent stuff, I love 70's DC war mags above all other comics!

  3. Groovy!! More Weird War, Tony Dezuniga & some Twilight Zone!! Love to see some Classic Classic Illustrated also. Like Frankenstein, War of the Worlds, Dr.Jekyll & Mr.Hyde, the Invisible Man,etc. Thanks Groovster!!
