Comic Reading Library!
It's time once again for an installment of the Comic Reading Library, in which I feature selected stories from comics in the past you've probably never read before! We lead off with a tale from Weird Volume 1, #12.
It's "The Fanged Terror"!
Well, that was a twist ending that nobody could've seen coming... unless they've read more than a handful of comics in their life.
Next, let's see what the Little Scouts were up to in issue four of their self-titled comic book:
Wow, this story was just chock-full of fodder for the blog Comics Make No Sense, wasn't it?
How about a little superhero action next? Here's Young Samson and Goliath from Super TV Heroes #1!
Is it just me, or does it seem like this cartoon had to have had an effect on changes made to Marvel's Captain Marvel, as well as having an influence on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe!
Next, we have "The Space Rovers" from Exciting Comics #8!
For variety's sake, here's a funny animal tale from Twinkle Comics #1, featuring Ella the Elephant!
Our final offering comes from Desperado #1, which as you can see, promises true crime stories of the old west!
