Paul Levitz comic
This sword and sorcery title by scribe Paul Levitz and artist Steve Ditko epitomized the credo "Be careful what you wish for." The series' anti-hero was a nameless wanderer whose dreams of becoming a warrior brought him first slavery, then worse. Dgrth, the demon lord of warriors, answered the boy's prayers and granted him unparalleled combat skills, plus a hunter's gifts and name - in exchange for his soul. As Stalker the Souless, the youth came to realize that smiting his enemies brought him no joy, for he had been stripped of his humanity. From that point, the young hunter's target became the demon that made him. Stalker ran for four issues.
The Legion of Substitute Heroes are summoned by Tenzil Kim of Bismoll because he has a hunch that something bad will occur on his planet. Soon afterwards, Pulsar Stargrave arrives to control the planet. The Legion of Substitute Heroes are able to defeat Pulsar Stargrave with the help of Matter-Eater Lad, saving the planet of Bismoll.

The new Legion series was to be released solely through the direct market while the "Tales" series would continue to be released through both the direct and newsstand markets. This format was designed to emulate the mainstream book market where a book would be released in hardcover with a paperback (or softcover) release coming about a year later. In this case, the higher-priced direct market edition was the "hardcover" and the lower-priced newsstand edition was the "paperback."Most specialty comics stores quit ordering the Tales series after #325.
