Mirrors: [ Fox 'A Star Presentations Magazine #3' original printing ] [ Charlton 'This Is Suspense 023' reprint
Scanned by Cimmerian32
Features Wally Wood and Harry Harrison artwork.
Reprints Fox's "A Star Presentations Magazine (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde)" #3, from May 1950.
This Star reprint does recolour the story a little. The Charlton seems to stick with the original colouring.

The book was also reprinted by Charlton. You can find those links above.

Comment: This one has a Disbrow/L.B. Cole cover, a 25-page adaptation of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and a 3 page back-up story by Wally Wood. This book holds a rather unique place in the pre-code world, as it is the first issue for five different series. Love Confessions, Horrors, Terrifying Tales, Terrors of the Jungle, and, of course, Startling Terror Tales. Startling Terror Tales changed numbering halfway through, going from #10-14 (1st series), then changing to #4-11 (2nd series)resulting in two different issues from the same title #'d 10 & 11. This is the first #10, I will be scanning the second one tomorrow or the next day...

Comment: Wally Wood art or Woodesque art? My guess is Harry Harrison -- later author of sf such as _Bill the Galactic Hero_ & Stainless Steel Rat. Bob

Comment: Actually, it's listed as Harrison/Wood art, so I'm guessing it's Harrison layouts and Wood finishes...
