Plot: Stan Lee

Script: Larry Lieber

Art: Dick Ayers

Lettering: John Duffy

It’s back to Strange Tales, and a particular favourite of ours. Not only is issue #106 the episode where Johnny’s pretence at having a secret identity completely falls down, but it also introduces my favourite villain of the entire run – The Acrobat, aka… ZANTE!

ZANTE makes his way into the book by convincing Johnny that he would be better off in a team with him, rather than with his family. Johnny pop round to tell Reed and Ben the news, and predictably, gets into some sort of fight. Still, it makes for a nice ignition panel from Dick Ayers – his first of many.

Check out our coverage of Strange Tales #106 in our tenth episode: Hulk? Smash!
