A tale that requires careful study...
...since, according to it's author, only one person has ever figured it out on first reading!
Originally published in the one-shot fanzine Abyss in 1970, Marvel's Unknown Worlds of Science Fiction #2 (1975) reprinted the tale after it's writer-artist, Mike Kaluta gained pop culture fame as the illustrator of DC Comics' revival of the pulp hero The Shadow!
UWoSF Editor Roy Thomas commented that Kaluta “…congratulated [him] for being one of the few human beings he’s met who actually figured the story out on first reading.”
Have you figured it out, dear reader?
