Mike Machlan’s spectacular cover art is but a prelude to this issue’s opening vintage classic- “The Birth of the AVENGER!!”- the origin and first appearance of Magazine Enterprises’ historic premier Silver-Age costumed defender, as written by Gardner Fox and illustrated by Dick Ayers. Then, AIRBOY flies into action, as he investigates the mystery of a ghost-plane, in a taught drama drawn by the great Ernie Schroeder. Next, Ernie’s back, doing art chores on a classic tale starring The HEAP, wherin the big, silent, shaggy guy tangles with a a monstrous crustacean known as The Black Death from the Sea!! Next, it’s a feature-length adventure of SPY SMASHER, as he “Discovers the Streamlined Treasure Island”; as rendered by Alex Blum. Then, a Klaus Nordling LADY LUCK adventure as she goes undercover as a chorus girl to rescue the kidnapped General Stone, followed by Matt Baker’s PHANTOM LADY in- “The Television Spies”. IBIS The INVINCIBLE makes an appearance, in a Kurt Schaffenberger-drawn tale entitlrd “School for Sorcerers”, and LANCE O’CASEY rounds out the issue in “The Deadly Seadragon”. 64 pages of action and excitiement, straight out of the pages of Golden Age comicvs originally printed by Fawcett, Hillman, Fox Features, Quality and others, reproduced in sparkling black & white using state-of-the art restoration and reproductive techniques.
