It’s an issue featuring the Asbestos Man. I’d be very disappointed if we didn’t add a fair few panels of ridiculous uses of asbestos over the next few days…

Like this asbestos letter. It looks and feels like paper, and clearly shares many of the same properties, allowing ink to stain it, or taking the markings of a pencil without ripping. And yet, it resists the hottest fire of the Human Torch. Marvellous! Now, if only he could do something about making it a bit less lethal, then he could make a fortune in the indestructible paper market. And not need to rob safes to fulfil his desire to be recognised for his works.

Check out our coverage of Strange Tales #111 on our fifteenth episode: Whence Came The Man of Asbestos
