Weird Wonder Wolverton

I love reprint comic books; this particular Marvel comic, WEIRD WONDER TALES #1, is dated December 1973. It has four really fun strips from the old Atlas horror comics of the '50s. The final story, "The Eye of Doom," by the genius Basil Wolverton, has been reprinted more times than I can count, but there's always someone out there who hasn't yet seen this surreal 6-page science fiction nightmare, or may even be seeing the Wolverton magic for the first time. I envy you the experience, but then as many times as I've seen it, I re-read it every time.

Useless punk meteorologist! Gilpin's last act bought us some time, but the weatherman wasted it covering his eyes!
