Holiday Tales Bonus! Steve Ditko "On the Day of His Return"

Merry Christmas and Yuletide Greetings, Groovesters! Ol' Groove has a tiny bit of spare time on his hands, so I thought I'd share this little Steve Ditko illustrated gem I dug up. This tale is from DC Comics' Time Warp #3 (November/December, 1979) and is written by Dan Mishkin and Gary Cohn. Time Warp was DC's attempt to revive the sci-fi anthology, by presenting tons of stories by their best writers and artists in the big 68 page Dollar Comic format. The mag was really far-out, but only lasted five issues (July, 1979-March, 1980). Writers Mishkin and Cohn were just starting out at the time, but went on to be quite a prolific writing team in the late 70s/early 80s. You'll hear more about Time Warp, Mishkin, and Cohn as the Diversions keep on comin'! Meantime, enjoy this little quickie!
