The Return of the Brain

I totally forgot I even had this story until I was looking around through my silver age horror comics. Sure enough, lurking there in the back of Giant-Size Werewolf #4 was the surprising reprint bonus sequel to our post from yesterday! Two issues later Russ Heath apparently bounced The Brain back for more spooky thrills and chills in the October 1951 issue of Adventures into Terror #6! Bump! Bump! Aaaaaa again!

Note: GCD has this story listed incorrectly as "Follow-up of story in Adventures into Terror #5" when actually The Brain's first appearance was in issue #4.

I don't believe so, at least he didn't for any later issues of Adventures into Terror. Anybody know for sure?

No,unfortunately,the Brain was never seen again in the comic pages,still,i say he has a few "untold tales" in the Marvel or Wold-Newton universes,and i consider this sequel superior to the first in that it had social commentary(just who are the people who expose traitors anyway?,can THEY be trusted?.)and great bits like the box.i like to think that he told his secrets to Dr. Patrick Corey,then he told his story to Stan Lee,but Stan's will was too strong,so to discredit the comics,he posessed a certain german child-psychologist to denonce them.....anyone care to guess whom?.

>anyone care to guess whom?

Charles Nelson Reilly as Bentley Abernathy?
