  B-204 Molu's Secret!

Notes: Carmine told me one time Gil Kane worked with him on many stories in this period. He could never look at a story and tell me if Kane was in any of them, though. - Doc V.

  A-773 Suspense Sanctuary 1 pg letters page
B-103 Vampire, Beware!

Notes: The letters page mentions the fact that many favorite letters were recieved for the story Hate in the previous issue. Hate was a preachy shocker about a guy in Korea discriminating against his fellow soldiers, who in the end of the story doesn't get helped by the medics, because he has red hair and the medic has always hated redheads. Clearly, this was an attempt to imitate the succes of the EC preachies if not the tone of the letters page. Stan Lee promises more similar stories in future issues, but I can't really recall if any actually appeared. Stan Lee had a short memory span even then. One of the letter writers was a S. Martin of New Jersey. Anyone know where Steve Martin lived?

  B-118 The Man In Black
