Admiring Adams: "Above and Beyond the Call of Duty!" by Aragones and Adams

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Here's a Neal Adams classic from Witching Hour #8 (January 1970). Best I can tell, Sergio Aragones and Adams collaborated on the writing, while Nefarious Neal supplied the pencils and inks. It's a beaut of a bizarre brain-blaster, baby! Get ready to go..."Above and Beyond the Call of Duty!"


  1. Bummer, the butler got it & did it! I think they stole that story from a episode of the Twilight Zone by Rod Sterling in a way. Boy Neal Adams sure could draw some great tales couldn't he.

  2. I remember having read this story in a reprint digest during the 80's. Man, this was out there.

    If there's one thing underrated about Sergio Aragones, it's his talent as a writer.

  3. Great story! It is such a shame that besides a handful of covers, Adams didn't draw romance stories. He would have been perfectly suited for the genre!
