Decker responds to Paul Levitz's plan (detailed in THE COMIC READER #165) to write a Justice Society of America story suggesting the group disbanded in the 1950s after being called before Senator McCarthy's HUAC.

Decker also laments the cancellation of Marvel's THE INVADERS and looks back on the title made unique by Roy Thomas. Decker closes with some words on bootleg CARL BARKS Duck stories, noting that a restored version of "Back To the Klondike" is available in a Dutch album.
