I HAVE MOST OF THESE ACTUAL ISSUES BUT LOVE PICKING UP THESE BLACK AND WHITE REPRINTS ANYWAY.
YOU CANT BEAT THE PRICE FOR SO MUCH EXCELLENT READING

I'VE ALWAYS THOUGHT WRIGHTSONS COVER GIRL LOOKED LIKE MORGAN FAIRCHILD, ANYONE ELSE THINK SO?

Ooh, good call, all-caps anon. :) Very much like her posters/stills from "The Seduction"--which is not a bad thing at all.

Fascinating. I see the resemblance now that you mention it too. The narrow nose clinches it--- The Fairchild Factor!

Cool! I actually just picked up the House of Mystery collection which is also HUGE. I hope to be done with by the time this one comes out.

Oh, and re: the cover model, I seem to recall a Wrightson interview where he mentioned his model was actually Louise Simonson (then Louise Jones).
