Saturday Leftover Day.
When I did the Howard Post horror story from Men's Adventures yesterday, I realized that title for a very short while was one of the most exciting ones in the Timely-Atlas line-up. Among collectors it is agreed that Manace was probably the best horror book the company produced, not only because most of the early issues were written in full by Stan Lee, but also because he used his best artists for himself (and therefore for the title) and continued to do so even after stopped writing the stories himself.
But if you look closely at the contents of Men's Adventures #21 to #26 (all from the 1952-53 period) you'll see that Lee used a similar approach and line-up there. Lots of his best artists and towards the later issues he even wrote a couple of stories himself, that just have easily have gone into the later Menace issues that did not have any of his work. What the thinking behind this was (or even if there was a concious plan) I do not know. I just like the pretty pictures by some of the industry's greatest artists, such as Russ Heath, Gene Colan, Bill Everett, Fred Kida, John Romita and Reed Crandall.
