Time Warp #1, November 1979

DC’s penultimate foray into the world of the science-fiction anthology comic wasn’t particularly distinguished. The interior art of this premiere issue was solid enough, featuring work from the pencils of Steve Ditko, Jim Aparo, Tom Sutton, Dick Girdano, Don Newton and, er… Jerry Grandinetti.

What really set the series apart was the wonderful covers by Mike Kaluta. Evocative of a bygone era, they’re never less than spectacular. There are echoes of Frank Frazetta’s approach here (most especially his Buck Rogers covers), and that can only be a good thing.
