Synopsis for "Image in Wax"

A museum of the occult which specializes in wax sculptures of famous practitioners of the occult are after a woman named Dalia. When the Phantom Stranger intervenes he finds that the woman is amnesiac, and so he uses his powers to lift the fog of her memory.

He learns that she was an ancient sorceress who was going to be preserved by being made into a wax figure. When the two go back to the streets they are confronted by Dalia's fiance Ernie Drapper. After a misunderstanding and brief fisticuffs, the two men realize that Dalia has been kidnapped by the followers of the occult.

Battling them, a fire breaks out in the wax museum, but the Stranger manages to save Dalia and Ernie. Unfortunately, Dalia melts into a puddle of molten wax as her immortality was destroyed along the museum. After the battle, the Stranger leaves Ernie to mourn the loss of his fiance.

Synopsis for Doctor 13: "And the Corpse Cried, 'Murder!'"

Dr. Thirteen is visited by the "ghost" of a Paul Williams, television executive who supposedly committed suicide. The executive asks Thirteen to solve his murder. Which leads him to Ross Curran, who kills himself as well. Thirteen deduces that the entire ghost story is a hoax, and later proves it when he confronts the still living Williams.

Using Williams' own devices to make himself a harder target, Thirteen stops Williams and disarms him, but not before one of the stray bullets which hits his wife.
