    This issue comprises of four stories.  The first three deal with challenges from Aphrodite, sort of centered around love (these are supposed to be equal to Hercules' 12 tasks).  The stories are pretty average in terms of golden age material.  The second story is probably the best with the Mole Men and Mole Women, though the message is a little bizarre, basically that the blind Mole Men treat their women poorly until their vision is restored and then they see how beautiful they are and treat them...
