Comment: The stories aren't overly interesting, but the last one, "Land of the Silicon Men" had a fairly original premise even if it didn't do much with it. The coloring on "Diogenes' Deadly Lamp" was surprisingly experimental for a comic of this vintage with shading and lighting effects. Colorists were paid extremely little money. Even at the time Jim Shooter was initially working at Marvel, colorists only got fifty cents per page.
