Synopsis for "The Genie Lives"

Amazing Adult Fantasy Vol 1 9 027
A boy finds a book with a spell for summoning up a genie. He reads the words aloud and is astonished when a genie actually appears. The genie can grant any wish the boy thinks of. He wishes himself a giant and that everything other than Earth disappear so he will be the greatest of all. When the Earth begins to careen he realizes that without everything else, Earth no longer has its place in gravitational attraction and will be destroyed. He panics, and wishes that "everything was back the way it was right before I found you." The genie obliges, and the last panel of the story is identical to the first, giving the reader the impression that the boy is doomed to live out an infinite loop of a few events for eternity.
