Today’s page is from Panic #12, which was published by Entertaining Creations (EC, don’t you know) and is cover dated January 1956 (really, December ’55/January ’56, but that’s a PITA to type, even though I just did). I borrowed this and several other comics over the next few weeks from Howard Harris, my comics retailer, who was nice enough to let me take them home and scan them. Enjoy!
