TALES TO ASTONISH #9, which shipped Christmas week of 1959, was the first issue to have a character make a return appearance. The character was a Kirby-drawn genie.

      Kirby's cover was for the Heck-drawn story in the anthology title though.

  1. This "Droom" story is reprinted in one of the early Marvel Tales or Fantasy Masterpeice reprint 25 center squarebound books of the mid-1960s.... if anyone is looking for it. As I recall, he keeps growing and growing, and as he walks across the surface of the earth, he comes to the missile launch field, and the launch them all at once, propelling him into space, where it dies. SO realistic.... NOT!
