Mystery Tales & "Hidden Land"
« on: May 09, 2008, 03:19:34 PM »
Ok, so we recently see the comic book "Mystery Tales" in locke's childhood flashback with Richard.
This is a real book published by Atlas which is now under the Marvel imprint. One of the short stories in this issue is called "Hidden Land" illustrated by Stallman, writer "unknown". I've looked all over the net today and can not find any reference as to what the story is about  or any good scans. Does anyone have access to this book?? Knowing the writers, I'm thinking this might be worth looking into.
Any thoughts?

Probably just a shout out to comic book fans, combined with a reference to hidden (is)lands in our culture. Could be more but I think it was just there as part of the test. The kind of thing a boy his age might want to pretend was his.

Unfortunately, I haven't gotten a hold of a scan yet.  I hear that Dark UFO did a thing on it, too, so you could try there:

Ooh, I'd avoid that site until after the finale, if I were you.

You can find the scans here:
