DESCRIPTION
Off-White to White pages
robot story; Romita art
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.


Artists Information

John Romita was one of the driving forces behind Marvel's Silver Age, he took up the reins on Spider-Man following the departure of Steve Ditko with issue #38. Romita's run on Spider-Man would be long and significant, introducing characters including Mary Jane Watson, the Kingpin and many others. He would be a major contributor to the entire Marvel line throughout the 1970s including designing the look of The Punisher.

Sherrill David Robinson known as Jerry Robinson, was an American comic book artist known for his work on DC Comics' Batman line of comics during the 1940s.
