Valiant Annual 1978 ( published
in the winter of 1977 ) saw the return of Adam after an absence from the previous years Annual. This story
had previously appeared in Lion in October 1971! However it was notable for its explanation of Adam's genesis as
the accursed time traveler ( previously covered in March 1971 - perhaps Lion editors felt readers needed a reminder
of how Adam came to be? ) and a special "guest" appearance by Erasmus Hemlock himself albeit as a vision!
