(40) Strange Tales #75
"I AM TABOO"

The dictionary defines "taboo" as: "Proscribed by society as improper or unacceptable, forbidden for general use, banned based on social convention."

So why is that man screaming: "The swamp... it's ALIVE!!!! It's rising up!! No!! NO!! It's TABOO!!" What does HE know that we don't?? What's so "taboo" about "Taboo"? Whatever it is, if it needs all those exclamation points, it must be just ...

"DUEL OF THE SUPER GAMBLERS"

"Attention Superman! You will keep throwing darts until a balloon bursts! My gamblers made a bet as to which one you'll hit!"

Batman, chained and gagged, thinks "They put lead a blindfold on Superman so he doesn't know their REAL bet! Whoever's face is on the balloon he breaks will DIE... so I'm doomed!"

"THE SHOCKING SECRET OF LOIS LANE"

Superman is more than a bit curious as to why Lois Lane has taken to wearing a lead-lined metal box on her head. Can you blame him? It's not exactly normal. But when Supes demands an explanation,

Lois tells him: "I'm ashamed to tell anyone... not even YOU Superman! And now goodbye! (sob) I'm leaving Metropolis for good!" Lois baby, I have to level with you, your behavior is totally ...

"THE FOOD OF THE GODS"

Here's the H.G. Wells story "The Food of the gods." On the cover is a gigantic chicken running around with a boy in its beak. In the background, a man in a suit waves a cane angrily. Behind him, another man waves a stick.

Why is the chicken gigantic? Is the chicken going to eat the boy? Is the chicken a God? Is the boy his food? We're only on "Sick Cover" number 36 of 40, and it's is already just completely ...
