MAY 1976 (#70)

Gold Key Comics published a long-running Twilight Zone comic that featured
the likeness of Rod Serling introducing both original stories and occasional
adaptations of episodes. The comic outlived the television series by nearly
20 years and Serling by nearly a decade. A later revival of Twilight Zone
comics was published by Now Comics, spinning off of the 1980s revival of
the show.
