One of the great things about DC’s many anthology titles of the 1970s and 1980s was that a writer never knew who might end up drawing their story. In this case, it was the legendary George Evans of EC Comics, Blazing Combat, and (shortly after doing this story) Secret Agent Corrigan fame, who was handed my dinky little script by editor Paul Levitz to actually render. Decades later when I asked Paul how this bounty had come about, he said something along the lines of, “George probably needed a few pages to fill a hole in his schedule and I had this laying around.” Of such serendipity are fannish dreams made to come true. I only wish it had had airplanes in it.
