Although they're not everyone's cup of tea, I really like the early, more simple tales of the Mighty MARVEL superheroes, even with the loopy lapses in logic that they sometimes displayed. That's probably because, having read them as a kid, I equate them with my childhood and can therefore never be too 'down' on them. However, when one has a blog to feed, one can't let personal sentiment get in the way when choosing a subject to write about, hence this present post about TALES Of SUSPENSE #44 from way back in 1963.
Also, Fantastic #8 spells 'Pharaoh' correctly in a banner on the (X-MEN featured) cover, but fails to correct the spelling inside. MCIC #7 corrects the spelling, as did the first editions of the Masterworks volume containing the tale. However, when Marvel decided to make the Masterworks more archival, the spelling mistake was restored. Only thing is, they didn't have original uncorrected proofs to hand, so they merely relettered the misspelling. The problem with that is they missed a couple of instances, and the 'restored' relettering was executed with less precision than the original corrections.
