From the cover this appears to be an average DC-centric mystery issue from towards the end of the run, but it does have some unexpected contents, such as the Swamp Thing reprint and the Toth cameo. Top it off with a bit of Meskin, and a couple of instalments from Forbidden Tales of Dark Mansion and Weird War Tales, and suddenly it’s not all that shabby a comic.
