Issue Notes

Distributed to newstands in Februay 1958. This issue includes 10 pages of paid advertisements.

Synopsis:
A thief named Boris Hann runs through the streets of a small European village after a robbery. Seeking to evade the police, he takes shelter inside of Johan the Mirror Maker's shop. The police knock on Johan's door, but the craftsman doesn't realize that Boris has snuck into his house. After the police leave, Boris confronts the old man. Johan shows him a magic mirror that can instantly alter his appearance. He gives it to him in exchange for leaving him alone.
Boris takes the mirror and decides to use it as a means for committing more crimes. He has the mirror transform his image into that of a younger man, then breaks into the Furtwanger mansion. The police see Boris as he tries to escape and gives chase. Rushing back to his room, he collides with an elderly man and induces a heart attack. He gets back to his room and uses the mirror to change his image to that of the old man. As the old man has since died however, the mirror works its magic only too well, as Boris takes on the form of the old man and falls to the floor in a death-like state.
