    Cover by John Giunta. Stories and art by Jack Alderman, August Froehlich, Henry C. Kiefer, Gus Jud and Charles Voight. Offbeat adventure one-shot from the publisher variously known as Rural Home and Croydon. Captain Wizard investigates strange Fortean events, such as rains of cats, dogs and frogs, and discovers a strange upside-down land above the clouds, in a truly weird story. In another odd tale, adventurer Race Wilkins finds himself in Hades at the center of the Earth, populated by fantastic creatures including dragons, gnomes and a dangerous minotaur. In the strangest story yet, DIY interplanetary explorer Hugh Mann lands on the lost planet Brutus, where he runs afoul of the planet's strange justice system. But his battle against a space villain earns him the name Impossible Man (no relation to the Marvel character). Captain Wizard; Race Wilkins; Laffs; Little Joe Djerk; It's True; The Stubborn Water Ghost; Impossible Man; Humor; The Kid Next Door; The Spook. 48 pages, Full Color. Cover price $0.10.
