Diggin' Ditko: Dragon-Lord

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Today's--er--spotlight is on a far-out comic that started out as a fill-in issue for Marvel's Godzilla comic that wound up taking a life (and cult following) of its own. From Marvel Spotlight Vol. 2, No. 5 (December 1979), here's the dazzling debut of Dragon-Lord as written by Marv Wolfman and drawn by (duh!) Steve Ditko. Kick back and enjoy "A Hero Is Also a Man!" (Oh, and dig that groovy Frank Miller/Bob Wiacek cover!)
