Tom Strong's Terriffic Tales #9 - $2.95 - order #OCT030295
The Tom Strong material is generally darned good pulp, and usually small stories instead of 436 issue crossovers with 38 obscure titles. The reason this title gets listed is because of the Johnni Future tales, because Jermaal is the sort of cheetah most of you kittyboys drool over. Great fun.
