BONUS: Walter Gibson and Edd Cartier tell the real life magical tale of Herrmann the Great, in an 8-page story reprinted from Red Dragon Comics.

This leads off with a striking cover painting by illustrator Charles Coll and also showcases the original and rare digest covers by Modest Stein and Walter Swenson, with interior illustrations by Paul Orban and Edd Cartier. Historical commentary by Will Murray, and publisher Anthony Tollin looks at the real life magic (and debunking) of Walter Gibson.

This is another bonus-sized issue, that leads up to the final issue, #151. Extra stories, 176 pages, 50% more than the usual issue.
