Synopsis:
Susan and Larry's marriage is starting to drift apart. A guardian angel comes into Susan's life, which only she can see, to tell her that there will be trouble ahead if they do not work out their problems. After spending years on developing insecticide #383, Larry is ready to test it on a camping trip. Susan comes along and the trip turns into a slapstick disaster that is only saved when Larry and Susan realize that they still love each other.

Indexer Notes

The character played by James Mason in the movie is called "John Malone" in this story and his appearance is not that of Mason. The character in the movie is named Lorenzo Vega, while in the comic he is Larry Vega. The story continues on the inside back cover in black and white and concludes on the back cover in color. The last panel is Dell's "A Pledge to Parents."
