Reading Room JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY "Filbert's Frightful Future!"

To wind up our collection of never-reprinted Journey into Mystery stories...
...here's the first of two featuring time travel!
(appropriate at the year's end, eh?)
The second of two never-reprinted stories from Marvel's Journey into Mystery #85 (1962), it's the more imaginative and thoughtful tale.
The other one, "Off Limits" is HERE.
Don Heck penciled and inked it.
Stan Lee plotted it, but experts are not sure if he scripted it.
Lee usually signed the later shorts he scripted, but only Heck's signature is here.
Just about everything Lee didn't script at this point was handled by his brother Larry Lieber.
(Stan's birth name is Stanley Leiber. He used "Stan Lee" on his comics work because he wanted his real name on the Great American Novel he planned to write.
When he finally realized he would be forever known for his comics and not any prose novel he might write, he legally changed his name to "Stan Lee".)
Be here tomorrow as we present a totally-different (and never-reprinted) time travel tale from Journey into Mystery.
