Ten Ways to End a Story



Hoosier X said...

I sed to have the original comic book that had that de-activated robot ending, but I sold stacks of late 1950s and early 1960s Marvel when I was funding my master's degree.


I had every issue of Tales of Suspense, dammit!

Most of these I could figure out the whole tale from the single panel but what exactly are the full stories to numbers 3, 7, 8 and 10?

3. A pilot meets sinister cloud men, is himself transformed into a cloud man.
7. A jubilant Earth is expecting astronaut heroes, gets moonmen instead.
8. Scientist repels gullible space invaders with a picture projected onto the sky.
10. Artist Wayne Boring gets pulled into the story he's drawing for Astonishing Comics assignment.

All stories from Astonishing and Tales of Suspense.

I'm... not entirely sure how you could fail to realize that you're on Venus.

Wasn't the poison rain a bit of a tipoff?

"It's PEOPLE! This comic is made of PEOPLE!"

Sorry. Couldn't resist.
