Issue: Strange Tales # 113
Writer: Stan Lee / Joe Carter
Artist: Dick Ayers
Publication Date:

Brief Summary:

http://marvel.wikia.com/Strange_Tales_113

Commentary:

Well, this issue features the exploits of a man who tries to increase the intelligence of plants. Then a lightning bolt hits his device, and it works. So then the plants obey him. It's like two steps removed from a piss poor M. Night Shyamalan movie.


Johnny's got a new girlfriend, Doris Evans. Surprise, surprise. Only this one likes him for everything except being the Human Torch. Interesting touch, I suppose.

Other than that, not much doing in this one. Not even a hilarious anecdote from Thing or something.

Favorite Panel:

Johnny Storm realizes the sad truth about male/female interactions at an all too young age.
