Ad for a 32 page black and white comic with color cover called "Gothic Horror Tales". Mentions it's by "Staton, Day, Hamou and Burke". Apparently never came out.

Ad for the next issue of Corbo (which was never released) with artwork of Corbo breaking out a window with bullets following him. Also mentions that the next issue was to introduce "The Shada-No by Smith/Day/Burke".

Indexer Notes

On back cover.

Ad for issue 1 of Swords of Valor, with "Sun Warrior, Viking Quest and Bruce the Savage One". Broughton didn't release this comic, but did use the name Swords of Valor for another comic 3 years later. That comic did include a story by Gene Day, so it's possible that story was originally intended for this comic.
