@Mestiere -- your fancy "logic" and "facts" about the story just prove you missed the entire point, it's all about the romance!

Why, look at her torn between the Galt and Wayne! Er, actually, wait, no she wasn't. And she was already in love with Wayne. Damn it, I know there's romance in there, somewhere!

I like the slightly Ditko-ish moon/light/Galt drawing when Wayne basically expositions us all.

Sutton does something really cool on page 3/4 of this set -- he repeats the tree branch motif across a number of panels.

And Brian missed the point of me posting that KISS ad! Argh, points missed... even for KISS fans, haha

Had a request for a witchy Dell story, that's coming up next-- see ya in a few!

It's a little like the Lovecraft story THE THING ON THE DOORSTEP, where a warlock gets reincarnated as his own daughter.
Or a supernatural answer to the mad scientist movie THE ATOMIC BRAIN / MONSTROSITY.

Haha, for sure, Grant!

Looking at some of the panels again it seems like Sutton was channeling Jerry Grandanetti in a few places as well.
