In this nearly forgotten issue of Black Magic from 1950, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby again tackled a subject of great interest to them in those years: dreams. Mort Meskin and Bill Draut also contribute to this issue. We saw their work alongside Kirby & Simon in Strange World of Your Dreams and other golden age gems.
