Every now and then, you'll find a random DC book from the Silver Age that has a nice little surprise between the covers. This issue of the short-lived Spectre series features a fairly entertaining Gardner Fox story with art by the always under appreciated Jerry Grandenetti, who really shines when inked by Murphy Anderson (who doesn't?). The real treat here, however, is the solo Hourman story. Even with all of the Earth-Two mania that swept through DC in the 60s (ok, that may be overstating things a bit), you don't find many solo stories featuring JSAers. This is a fine little story, also by Fox with artwork by the talented, and apparently workaholic, Dick Dillin with nice Sid Greene inks. This is the kind of book you can pick up for next to nothing in low to mid-grade condition, and it's always a treat to discover these added bonuses.
