Fibber McGee and Molly-1949

This is a rerun, originally posted 5 1/2 years back at BOOKSTEVE'S LIBRARY. It's one of my favorite radio series and one of my favorite adaptations of a radio series.

Russia!-Sam Kweskin-1953

In spite of the imposing photo referenced image of "the Mad Monk," this is mainly the semi-historical story of Anastatia (sic) after the Soviet revolution. GCD credits Carl Wessler as the writer, which may be why it looks and feels a lot like an EC story. Risky for ANY comics publisher to have done this story at a time when they were being accused of being, at best, "fellow travelers."

The Stolen Hero-Bill Molno-1961

An unusual little pseudo-superhero story from Charlton. With a little more definition, this guy maybe could have continued being--as here--a backup for Ditko's Captain Atom.
