Number 1287: “...and featuring editor Richard E. Hughes, appearing as himself.”
Everybody have a nice holiday? I did, but I'm back on the job today.
Today I have a wild story from Forbidden Worlds #6 (1952), which is self-referential. It's about a writer creating a story for the magazine Forbidden Worlds (which, in the story has its own building — see page 4, panel 4.) It also features editor Richard E. Hughes in a co-starring role. Editor Hughes insinuated himself into his supernatural comics through chatty editorials and letter columns, but “The Devil's Typewriter” is the only time I know of that he was shown as a character in a story.
