THE MAN WHO OUTDISTANCED - TIME! (THAT'S ME, FOLKS)...
"All things come to he who waits" runs the old saying - or something pretty close to it. And it's right, 'cos I've just this minute purchased the comic wherein I originally saw 'The Man Who Outdistanced Death!' back around the mid or late '60s. I managed to acquire a colour reprint of the story two or three years back, but I just had to have the b&w one I'd originally read as a kid.
Surprisingly, for a self-proclaimed 'Adult Comic', they've toned down the skeletal figure of Death on the cover, and also adjusted the 'first' page of the story to avoid repeating the cover image inside. However, rather than describe it all in my usual tedious, long-winded way, I'll just show the cover and splash page as they originally looked when first published.
Well, that's another one soon to rejoin the throng. At this rate, it won't be long before I have just about everything I recall from childhood back in my possession.
