The King of the Beasts is a Sunday story that originally appeared in 1946 credit for the art was given to Ray Moore but look closely and you will see a great deal of input from Wilson Mc Coy
The other 2 stories were written by Lee and illustrated by Sy Barry. " The Witchman dates back to to 1972 and "The Uninvited Visitor to 1980'
