    Cover by Marvin Bradley and Frank Edgington. Stories and art by Marvin Bradley and Frank Edgington. The first issue of this showcase series from future children's publisher Harvey has a place in comics history. It reprints the comic strip Rex Morgan, MD, by Marvin Bradley and Frank Edgington, featuring a standard anti-drug storyline. But the lurid pre-Code cover blurb and art attracted the attention of anti-comics crusader Dr. Frederic Wertham, who mentioned it in the text of his anti-comics classic Seduction of the Innocent (p. 27). The Comics Code, of course, was soon to follow. Rex Morgan, MD: Teen-Age Dope Slaves; Meet the Creators of Rex Morgan, M.D. 36 pages, Full Color. Cover price $0.10.
