Indy Spotlight: DR. WEIRD #1

Dr. Weird, the Master of the Macabre, was created by Howard Keltner in 1962 and turned into a cult-classic by G.R.R. Martin & Jim Starlin in 1970. He returns now in a respectful revision of his origin. Here we will find out how the soul of a dead time traveler from the future, Rex Ward, attained his magical powers and garments, ghostly castle and new name! Lovecraft fans shouldn’t miss this one. Plus, a mob hit man gains the power over life and death with an enchanted Egyptian Ankh containing the mystical Black Flame in Death Stalks Dr. Weird. Finally, this issue also includes the classic origin of the Golden Ghost from 1970 by George R.R. Martin and Jim Starlin.
