    Starts Oct 5

    Stories and art by Dick Wood, Frank Giacoia, Tony DiPreta, and Art Helfant.

Flying Fool takes on the Timberland Arson Racket. The Airboy story and cover feature possible art by Flash Gordon's Dan Barry, while the Heap storyline may be the work of mystery novelist Patricia Highsmith, who worked in comics at this time.
