Krigstein art; Everett art; giant gorilla story
Second City Collection
Ogden Whitney, who submitted "The Crawling Horror" story to this issue of Mystery Tales was best known for his creation, Herbie Popnecker, a rotund super-hero spoof that went on to become a popular cult character. It was these unsung heroes that toiled away in relative obscurity during these low days of the comic industry who were responsible for churning out titles like Mystery Tales for Atlas, as they hung on by their fingernails until their luck would change for the better. Some of the other tales of terror in this book are "This Corpse is Mine", "The Rat Race", and "He Went for a Train-Ride".

Stan Lee script
Second City Collection
Stan Lee was one of the people responsible for preventing the Atlas Comics ship from sinking under the waves during the tumultuous post-war period, when comics were at a low point. He was able to keep food in the stomachs and clothes on the backs of his staff of writers and artists by putting out these mini shockers, along with romance books, crime potboilers, and humor comics, essentially anything to keep the lights on. Even his determination began to waver during this era, but the effort would not prove to be fruitless, as the staff at Atlas were unknowingly setting the stage for an incredible rebirth once the Silver Age got underway, it is in books such as Mystery Tales #5 that you can witness this phenomenon beginning to take shape.

robot story; Romita-a
Second City Collection
A couple of the names that pop up in the credits of this issue are those of Stan Lee and John Romita, two men who would loom large in the future of Marvel Comics, and here we see them toiling away, collaborating on these tawdry thrillers, specifically on a three-page "punch line" story called "The Man Who was a God". Interestingly, there is a short sci-fi / horror tale at the end of this book called "The Iron Man", and although it is completely uncredited, one can only wonder if Stan "The Man" had something to do with this quickie, and perhaps filed the concept away for future dusting off. It's these small kernels of ideas that appear in Mystery Tales that would eventually germinate into grandiose concepts, and the clues hidden in these sleeper books are just one of the many reasons to snap up copies for your personal collection.

classic Everett cover
Second City Collection
Mystery Tales #40 was prominently featured on the hit TV series "Lost", making that issue quite possibly the most-famous of the run. Few fans of that series might be aware that issue #9 of Mystery Tales features a story in its back pages named "Lost!", which concerns hidden loot and a couple who are trapped in a cave for two decades, one can't help but think there may be something to this strange connection between the show and the comic. Other spooky stories in this comic include the tales "The Specimen", "Hunger", "Ashes to Ashes", and "The Man in the Morgue", add in the classic Bill Everett cover and you have a nifty little book filled with things that go bump in the night, plus that mysterious "Lost/Lost!" thing.
