Number 2282: Two from Uncanny Tales
For today I have picked a werewolf story by Keller; the Grand Comics Database credits Carl Wessler for the script.
Speaking of scripts, the late Stan Lee showed his funny side with this Joe Maneely-drawn shorty of a horror comics editor who can’t seem to find a decent story from writers. I have mentioned before I like self-referential stories about the inner workings of the comics business. I wonder if Joe Maneely caricatured himself bent over a drawing board (page 3, panel 2). Obviously he didn’t caricature Stan Lee, who was too tall and slim to be mistaken for the fat and angry editor, Bradbury Bulldozer.
Both stories are from Uncanny Tales #4 (1952).
