Shadows, Vol. 1, No. 1, Jan., 1973. At the end of 1972 and beginning of 1973 Marvel was
flooding the newstands with titles. Competition from DC was fierce and both companies were
fighting for market share. The Crypt of Shadows was another of Marvel's reprint titles.
Art in this issue by Mort Lawrence, Basil Wolverton, Jay Scott Pike, and Russ Heath.
Vol. 1, No. 1, Mar., 1973. The Marvel Beware! was actually the 3rd version of this title.
The original Beware was published by Youthful Magazines in 1952. The second version was
published by Trojan Magazines from 1953 to 1955. The Trojan Beware, like the original
Chamber of Chills had extremely violent content and was used as an example by Dr. Wertham
in Seduction of the Innocent: "Childrem are first shocked and then
desensitized by all this brutality." The Marvel Beware! was much tamer, using
reprints, again, from old Atlas titles like Mystical Tales.
Nurse, Vol. 1, No. 1, Nov, 1972. Young girls were never comic book readers, but that
didn't stop comic book publishers from trying to sell to them. Night Nurse, like most
"girl-oriented" titles didn't last and ceased publication with issue #4. Jean
Thomas was the writer, and Winslow Mortimer the artist.
