DC's latest horror anthology didn't enjoy as long a life as the company's other Weird themed titles. However, the host that was first presented ina framing sequence by author Marv Wolfman and artist Bernie Wrightson would provide endless creative material for Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman" series decades later. Cloaked in a dark robe and cowl, Destiny's stories came from a large book chained to him, containing events past, present and future. Despite his blindness, nothing escaped his notice - except, perhaps, the fact that the biblical Eve would replace him as the series' host after fourteen issues.
