The Homecoming

The Homecoming
Author: Archie Goodwin
Art: Al Williamson
Creepy #112 (August 1979)
Reprinted in Creepy #137 (May 1982)

This story I was fortunate enough to see the original art to when I visited Al Williamson in October of 1998. Al mentioned that Bruce Jones scripted the original concept (if I am remembering correctly), but after Al drew it he felt something was missing and shelved it. Al then talked to Archie about it and Goodwin offered to rewrite it – changing the focus and making it much darker than the original.

It is one of my favorite Goodwin/Williamson collaborations.
