GAME PRESERVE by CUTI and STATON
"Professor Coffin was one of the last titles to be printed by Charlton Comics. It was basically another horror anthology title, but with all-new stories. The book sported a framing device in the form of the title character's misadventures with his niece Arachne, specifically their encounters with the supernatural. Prof. Cyrus Coffin was a character who first appeared in Charlton's Midnight Tales title.
Prof. Coffin lasted only three issues; this was part of a 'last gasp' before the Charlton company went out of business completely. Consequently, this is one of the smaller-print-run titles that are difficult and expensive to locate now. (Not that you'd want to.)" --- POP-CULT dot COM
Thank you, Pop-Cult dot Com for that. I hate having to explain things that have already been explained. It is just so much easier to do the 'copy/paste' thingy.
With that in mind, here's one of those stories that the previously quoted website claimed that weren't worth tracking down. I disagree. This story here is one of the wackiest sci-fi-horror-romance genre-benders I've seen in my life.
