Synopsis for "The Box of Doom!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Venus #19.

Working late one evening, Venus is delivered a strange package by a delivery man. When the box begins to shake, they both try to open it but are shocked when they are jolted back. The package then begins to speak and tells them that it can great them knowledge and power beyond the ken of mortal men if only they open the package. The pair find that the box's evil influence is tempting them to open the box. The box continues to tempt them offering them the ability to fly, walk through walls, shape-shift and control minds. Venus is still able to resist by the delivery man gives in and rips open the box despite Venus' warnings not to.

Upon ripping open the package and opening the box inside, the delivery man unleashes a creature from inside and it merges with the delivery man, seemingly killing him in the process. However, the delivery man, now possessed by the creature from inside the box rises and realizes that he has been endowed with all the powers the box told him he would. Having been changed into a vampire, the delivery man then attempts to hypnotize Venus and drink her blood but she manages to flee him. Changing into a wolf, the delivery man follows after her. Venus flees into a nearby subway station, she pulls a broken piece of wood out of the trash to protect herself. As she flees down the tunnel she catches her reflection in a mirror and realizes that the delivery man does not have one. She then correctly deduces that he has been turned into a vampire and rams the wood into his heart like a stake, killing the delivery man in the middle of his transformation into a bat.

Synopsis for "It Fell From the Flying Saucer!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Tales to Astonish #31.

An artist is sketching in the park when a pencil drops from a passing flying saucer. He picks it up and draws a bowl of fruit with it and it appears. He discovers that whatever he draws with the alien implement manifests itself as a physical object. His thoughts quickly turn to selfish gain and he draws vast wealth. Not satisfied with only money, he draws himself president. Again, not satisfied, he makes himself king of Earth. He demands his subjects tell him who he is and they reply that he is sovereign of Earth. He laughs, and claims it's all due to this pencil that fell out of a flying saucer. His attendants express disbelief in the existence of flying saucers, and so he draws the craft and it appears. Suddenly, a tentacle snakes out and snatches the pencil as a voice exclaims "There it is! I thought I'd lost it forever." The man begs it not be taken away, but the voice says "You were given unlimited power and you wasted it. You deserve nothing more." The saucer departs and the man finds himself sitting on the park bench with his sketch book as though nothing had happened.
