A great quartet of stories! Slaughter Slade (with his distinctively slow speech pattern), Dr. Allirog, Butch, and Spider make an interesting quartet of villains in the first story. The second story is a good haunted house mystery with a villain who isn't immediately obvious. The third tale on gambling is the least interesting of the stories in this comic, but still good. We finish off with a great encounter with Sivana, involving fighting destructive weather, a trip to Venus, battling alien monsters, and the ever lovely Beautia. Quite an anthology!
