Comments: Created by John Byrne.
Thanks to Mike Murphy for informing me of this story. Mike informs me that "D+1 was one of Byrne's first major talent showcases (gorgeous covers that looked painted but were done with magic marker!)", and also provided the plot synopsis used in the history section above. He also provided the image used at the top of the page.
Thanks to Dan S for providing the name of the Captain.
Any Additions/Corrections? Please let me know.
