Comment: Thanks for a great scan of a classic issue (average printing though), not long before the spoilsports ruined things. Great Altman story.

Comment: Nice to see this one in it's entirety. I had just read one story in Jim Trombetta's "The Horror! The Horror!" and was pleasantly surprised to be able to see it in its original context. Thanks for this!
