Time Warp is the name of a science fiction American comic book serie
published by DC Comics for five issues from 1979 to 1980,
a Time Warp one-shot was published by Vertigo in May 2013,

in 1978, DC Comics intended to revive
its science-fiction anthology series Strange Adventures,
these plans were put on hold that year due to the DC Implosion,
a line-wide scaling back of the company's publishing output,
when the project was revived a year later,
the title was changed to Time Warp and the series was in the Dollar Comics format
the first issue was published with an October–November 1979 cover date,
Michael Kaluta provided the cover art for the entire run

the title featured a mixture of both established comics creators and new talent,
the writing team of Dan Mishkin and Gary Cohn made their comics debut in issue #3
with the three-page short story "on the Day of his Return"
which was drawn by Steve Ditko

Time Warp was canceled with issue #5 (June–July 1980)
and unused inventory originally intended for the series
was published in a revival of the Mystery in Space title
other Time Warp stories appeared in the mystery anthology the Unexpected
