Random Reads: "Seeing-Eye Man" by Unknown and Celardo

You want more Gold Key? You got more Gold Key, Groove-ophiles! Now Ol' Groove is knows even less about most Gold Key creators than he does about most anything else (dang, what a dummy!), but he does know good comics when he sees 'em! T'was a rare time, I'll admit, when Young Groove bought a Gold Key mag, but when he did, it was a good'un! Take Twilight Zone #52, f'rinstance. Besides a cool lead-feature starring Abraham Lincoln (which we'll get around to sharing one'a these fine days), the cover story (who did that far-out cover, anyway?), illustrated by John Celardo, was a hoot of a sci-fi tale. From Twilight Zone #52 (July 1973), here comes the..."Seeing-Eye Man"!

  4. Who doesn't enjoy those Gold Key mysteries from the Twilight Zone to Doctor Solar and even the Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery. Since so many great suggestions are being thrown around, how about some Gold Key Mystery digest size posts.

    1. Mystery digest was great, and don't forget the awesome Dark Shadows comics.

  7. Excellent work, thank you Groove. That's probably the best story I've read from the Twilight Zone comic and it also captures the feel of the show itself.
