This was a great comic to read, the ghost stories were fun and the chuckle pages were funny.In the story The Phantom in White, I had heard about the loss of the Usk in some 50's comic I had seen online (sadly I can't recall where I had seen it.)Thanks to the internet, I found the story of the Usk from a digital copy of a newspaper dated 1864 - http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/38651974 -I decided not to look up the other ghost stories as I am a bit reluctant to tempt fate or angry spirits.Also, I learned from the comic that there are freshwater sponges, who says comics aren't educational?

Interesting story. These Ripleys books are very interesting and sort of freaky at the same time. I remember reading one issue back the 60's that sort of scared me. I will have to look around for it. I also love the corny jokes I use them all the time with friends and usually get laughs!
