    Cover by Ogden Whitney. Edited by Richard E. Hughes. Story by Richard Hughes. Art by John Forte and Ogden Whitney. An anthology series featuring tales of fantasy and science fiction adventure from legendary early independent comics publisher ACG.

The highlight is the classic Cold War story There's a New Moon Tonight!, an epic 15-page time-capsule of Cold War paranoia and Space Race history from Herbie creators Richard Hughes and Ogden Whitney, in which the response to Sputnik from the top-secret Bureau of Space Penetration naturally results in conflict with an alien civilization. Also, a Nazi encounters his birth parents during the purge of a city; World War II partisans are aided by the spirit of a historical military commander. Fun cover and art from Ogden Whitney on the Sputnik crisis story; also includes a full-page Honor House ad for a kids Jet Rocket Space Ship. There's a New Moon Tonight!; Wartime Episode; No Place to Hide!; What's the Answer?; Return of a Hero! 32 pages, Full Color. Cover price $0.10.
