The Master of Magic Battles the Mummy that Time Forgot!

Kent Nelson is Doctor Fate, a powerful sorcerer and agent for the Lords of Order who fights evil alongside his wife Inza. His amulet, cloak and helmet (shown on TV in Smallville & Constantine) are creations of the ancient Nabu who acts as his mentor and spiritual guide. He is a founding member of the Justice Society of America. Doctor Fate was created by Gardner Fox and Howard Sherman, first appearing in More Fun Comics #55.

Simonson did some great work on the tail end of the run on Hercules Unbound.
Manhunter, my favorite Walt Simonson series, with the great Archie Goodwin.
I've always enjoyed Walt Simonson's style, this sound effects and panel layout. Outstanding! 

Lovely splash page!
