I realize it barely registers on the Importance Scale, but it kinda jumped out at me (don't ask me why).

This morning I was looking thru Part 9B (Daredevil) of these indexes. I noticed this entry for issue #13...

"Intro: Vibranium (this is the first appearance of this strange metal in the Marvel Universe - not Fantastic Four #53, as incorrectly noted in Part 4 of this index; however, this is a different grade of Vibranium from the pure substance seen (and first named) in the latter story)"

Neither CGC, nor CBCS, lists FF53 as the 1st appearance of Vibranium, but many Ebay sellers that are selling raw FF53 do.

I am spending the day with my long box of Harvey square bound giants. For my nickel, square bound Harveys are probably the coolest comics ever (with the possible exception of the bound volumes)! Yes, the stories are often simplistic, and there is a sameness to them. Still, the Harvey Comics world is always a fun place to visit, full of characters such as Casper, Stumbo and Richie Rich, whose first inclination toward everyone they meet is: “how can I help?”. Even characters of a more selfish orientation such as Hot Stuff and Spooky are always willing to set aside their own interests in the name of contributing to the greater good. Harvey comics are a much needed reminder that in spite of the TP hoarders and hand sanitizer profiteers, in spite of the fear mongers and political pundits who try to divide us, most folks are good and decent and will go out of their way to help you if they can. It’s always good to remember that.

Just got this today and read it. After seeing the cover in the contest thread, I had to get it. It is DEFINITELY a mature book because of the violent scenes and nudity. But if you are ok with that and like horror comics, you might want to find a copy. It is full color with 4 different stories. Each story is more twisted than the previous one!! There are 10 comics in this series and I may just have to hunt them all down now.

@Jesse_O Twisted Tales is a great series! Along with it’s companion title, Alien Worlds, it was fashioned as a tribute to the EC comics of the ‘50s. After Pacific folded, Eclipse continued the concept, although they changed the title. The Eclipse version may have been called Tales of Terror?

I just read Undiscovered Country.

It’s strangely prescient in some ways.

I’ve had that sitting waiting on me. Should I move it to the top of the pile?
