Gerber, Baby!

I just read the last issue of Countdown to Mystery today and I have to admit it made me smile. Like Tales of the Unexpected, I had no use for the Spectre story, but the Dr. Fate Steve Gerber tale had me impressed. Sadly, Gerber died and was unable to finish his story. In a very weird gesture, DC decided to have not one, two or three writers finish it, but four.

The ending I liked the most was by Adam Beechen. It not only set up further tales for the new Dr. Fate and his associates, but gave us the return of one Gerber's greatest creations. I refer to, of course,


Thank you, Gerber, for your wonderful whimsy.
