Time Warp #1 - Steve Ditko, Don Newton art

Time Warp v1 #1, 1979 - One of DC's few science fiction titles during the bronze age, Time Warp displays a collection of short stories within the large dollar format. Steve Ditko's pair of stories set the tone, generally meeting expectations. "Forecast", the shorter tale, is more graphically interesting despite the page length. Don Newton's tale of a planetary rescue is competently drawn, despite the small panel sizes. Other artists in this issue include Rich Buckler, Dick Giordano, Tom Sutton, Jim Aparo, Jerry Grandenetti and Michael Kaluta (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Time Warp issues with Ditko art and/or covers and number 1 of 5 Time Warp issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton, Ditko or Time Warp issues.
