Weird Mystery Tales

    (DC, 1972-1975)
™ and ©1973 National Periodical Publications, Inc.

Weird Mystery Tales had a twenty-four-issue run from 1972 to 1975. During that time, this series related a wide variety of ironic and mysterious stories, from far-out fantasy by Jack Kirby to more conventional ghost stories. Ultimately, this series simply got lost in the mass of similar titles being published by DC at the time.
