52 YEARS AGO TODAY your dilemma would be which of these Kirby-covered comics to purchase with your quarter...


  1. Er, 50 years ago, a quarter would buy us TWO of those comics...they were 12 cents apiece, plus a penny tax.

  2. By the way, that Tales of Suspense #45 introduced Pepper Potts and Happy Hogan into the soap opera...which ran for the next four years or so! Pepper Potts was patterned on the actress who played Alice the housekeeper on the Brady Bunch. She's a dead ringer for her in the pages to come until Gene Colan gives her a make-over in about #72.
