CHALLENGERS OF THE UNKNOWN (1958) (#1-87) (DC) #62 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Challengers of the Unknown (1958) #62
"The Legion of the Weird" is written by Arnold Drake with art by Bob Brown. The late '60s saw the Challengers title move further away from the sci fi fantasy of their early days and the over-the-hill super-hero camp of the mid-60s. Now dubbed "The World's Greatest Fear-Fighters," the Challs began to take on more and more cases involving the occult and the supernatural, reflecting popular culture's growing interest in the gothic and strange.

In our story, Ace finds himself the victim of a trap laid by a beautiful witch who casts a voodoo spell on him in order to murder him and thus gain admission to a strange cult of sorcerers known as the Legion of the Weird. But try as she might, Mistress Wycker can't seem to kill the high-flying pilot who has already cheated death so many times and soon Rocky, Prof and Red are hot on her trail with some gris gris magic of their own. But first, they'll need to survive the onslaught of the Legion which includes Count Karnak; Kaftu, master of the black arts of ancient Egypt; Madoga, last of the medicine men; and Hordred the druid! Also, don't miss the continuation of Red's story in which Multi-Man's strange formula made him "Me...the Walking Nightmare!"
