Love x Destiny – The Ship That Sails Off-Course

I’ve been catching up with Kiss Him, Not Me and the story took a surprisingly dark turn in a series that’s been mostly comedic.

I skipped over the dinosaur/ World War II combat stories DC did in the sixties. DC made a regular series of the idea. “The War That Time Forgot” was the overall name of the individual stories, and they must’ve appealed to many readers, because they kept churning them out. Despite my opinion other comic buyers thought differently enough to keep buying them. Because I didn’t buy them I missed artists like Russ Heath, who wasn’t concerned with how screwy the plot, he just turned in his usual [Read Entire Story]
