DEFENDERS GIANT-SIZE (1974) #3 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Defenders Giant Size #3
"Games Godlings Play!," guest-starring >Daredevil and written by Steve Gerber, Jim Starlin and Len Wein. Art by Jim Starlin and Dan Adkins, Don Newton and Jim Mooney. The Gamemaster has begun a new contest with the Prime Mover with the fate of the Earth in the balance. He calls upon the Defenders, plus Daredevil, to champion his cause. On the other side of this cosmic chess board are six intergalactic menaces, each more deadly than the next. Witness the horrifying "deaths" of Daredevil and the >Sub-Mariner in this fatal game. Featuring the first appearance of Korvac, the half-man half-computer that laid low the mighty Avengers in issue >#175. They don't get much better than this!

Then in a 1950s reprint "the World Destroyers," the mighty Sub-Mariner thwarts a foreign plot by a group called the Fatalists. That's even though Betty Dean must convince the Atlantean monarch to put aside his war with the surface-dwellers long enough to do it. (Originally presented in Sub-Mariner #38 and drawn by Bill Everett). Finally, >Dr. Strange encounters "The House of Shadows," the creepiest haunted house that ever rattled a chain. But to the Master of Mystic Arts, it becomes very clear just what's behind this eerie structure. (Originally appeared in >Strange Tales #120, written by Stan Lee and drawn by Steve Ditko).
