Introduces the character Harm. Character and story title suggested by Harlan Ellison,


Harlan Ellison’s role in this issue is described in the letter column the following way:

“Credit where it’s due/look who thinks we’re cool dept.: A tip of the Milestone ballcap to celebrated essayist, novelist, television writer and talk-show host HARLAN ELLISON for his enthusiasm and support. It was he who, after effusively praising us at an industry gathering, suggested the name, ‘Harm’ for a character and ‘In Harm’s Way’ for an issue title. Dwayne has been a fan of Ellison’s work for many years and was thrilled to collaborate, even in such a small way, with one of his idols.”

The character of Harm continued to be used throughout the history of Milestone comics.
