56 YEARS AGO TODAY

 TALES TO ASTONISH #20 was historic for two reasons...

It had the longest story yet to appear in that title, a Kirby/Ayers 18 pager about a writer with a magic typewriter.

That left just enough room for a Ditko 5 page time travel tale, making TALES TO ASTONISH #20 the first issue with only two stories and the second issue with art by only Kirby and Ditko.
 PLUS
How could you not want to read the 19 page Kirby/Ayers story that goes with this cover?!
I was too young for this to be the cover that got me interested in totem poles as a child.

It was this one from 16 months later...
