Stories from the Bible, 1968

(Continued from 1967)

The latest retellings of these stories, begun in June 1966, continue with new 3 more installments of "Joseph", followed by 8 new installments retelling the story of "Moses".  Oddly enough, "Sodom And Gomorrah", skipped earlier, turns up in between therse two.  I wonder if anyone reading these for the first time thought that story took place in between the other two stories?

I've reached the point here where I came in.  My subscription ran from May 1968 to November 1969.  I don't know why it was more than 12 months, but those were the issues we got, based on the episodes of SPACE CONQUERORS!
I read way back when (and collected into a scrapbook).

Meanwhile, I have no way to be sure, but beginning with the May 1968 episode, the art appears to me to be by the team of Curt Swan & Al WilliamsonSwan is most known as "the" SUPERMAN artist from the 60's to the 80's, while Al Williamson did work ranging from EC science-fiction comics in the 50's to King's FLASH GORDON comic-books in the 60's to the STAR WARS newspaper strip in the 80's.  Swan went on record saying Williamson was his favorite inker of his pencils, and 2 other fans beside myself have said these episodes look like they could be their work.
