It's true.
I'm back.
Get ready for more of me...

Is it true that I have been involved in time travel experiments, and that the last fateful excursion went horribly awry? Could that be the reason my time sphere became encased in a trionic cocoon as I drifted helplessly on time ripples, all whilst being bombarded by pulsing zeegee rays emenating from the great Tempus radiation belt? Has my corporeal reintegration function therfore been compromised, in effect causing me to phase in and out of random time continuums uncontrollably? Is that the reason I haven't been able to post for the past several months? Huh, izzit?

All I can tell you is, "I can neither confirm nor deny this rumor at this time."

But who cares? For now, before I phase again, let me post a classic from Joe Maneely and Stan Lee. Now, I realize that this story has been posted on Karswell's blog previously, but I didn't know that when I scanned and cleaned up the pages from my own comic book months ago. So I figured I'd post it since I spent the time on it. So enjoy another beautifully drawn story by the late great Joe Maneely. The colors in this one are particularly vivid for a 1950's comic, making it very pretty to look at.

So, in lieu of any Christmas stories, here instead is a story stinking with the sulphurous stank of Hell itself...





Hmmm...perhaps he is not a ghost after all, 
but merely a bit of undigested figgy pudding...hrumphhh!


Tha--th--th--that's all, folks!

See you soon ...


  1. Welcome back, Mike! and Merry Christmas!

  2. It rather looks like you've been involved in a controlled near-death experience!
    Christmas will probably bring presents in a lot of houses: you're back is, for sure, one of them!

    Happy Holidays and stuff!

  3. Good to see you back, my friend. Here's looking to more good comics reading in days and weeks ahead! Thanks for posting.

  4. Welcome back! Makes Christmas even merrier!

  5. WELCOME BACK!! You've been missed.

    And a Happy Merry Christmas to us all!

  6. Indeed I join my voice to the chorus above!!! Welcome back Apocolyte!! You've been missed.
    And thanks for the groovy story.

  7. As you have mentioned, the colors for this one are quite eye-popping... before Marie Severin joined the Atlas staff, too~! Too bad some GCD info is lost to the shifting sands of time... like an Apocolyte adrift in a bubbling time-continuum stew ;~j

  8. Why does Satan look like Dr. Strange?!!


  10. Thank you everyone for the welcome back...
    I missed you all too.

    I'm just getting geared up here, I have a lot of catching up to do!
