The man is sitting on death row taking the rap for a murder his boss committed because he believes the man's lies that he will get him sprung.

Synopsis for "Million-Dollar Magic"

This story is reprinted from House of Mystery #60.

Caspar Creed is 65 years old, and he has spent a fortune searching for a magical object that will bring back his youth. After buying several objects that turn out to be fakes, Creed heads to Egypt to use a magical pearl scarab that apparently grants wishes. However, the scarab turns out to be a hoax just like all the others. Bitterly disappointed, Creed is about to leave, but a man offers him an old falcon that's about to be put to death. Creed feels sympathy for the bird, so he has it sent back to his mansion in Florida. When Creed returns home a few weeks later, the falcon has somehow become much younger. Creed then follows the bird into a nearby forest and accidentally steps into a small pond. Later that afternoon, Creed's assistant and butler go out looking for him. They find a baby in the pond, unaware that it's Creed. He has stumbled upon the Fountain of Youth.

Synopsis for "Hail the Conquering Aliens"

This story is reprinted from House of Mystery #103.

Dan Welks returns home after a long business trip, only to discover that his hometown has been overrun by aliens. After seeing that the aliens are brainwashing the town's children, he meets up with a small group of people who have formed an underground resistance. Eventually, the members of the resistance tell Dan that he's taking the game too seriously. Dan is embarrassed to learn that the whole invasion has just been a test run in case of an actual invasion -- the "aliens" are simply people in costumes. But just then, real aliens arrive in the town and start attacking the people in alien costumes. Dan runs into harm's way and saves a man who was dressed as an alien. Suddenly, the real aliens apologize. They explain that they've been stranded on Earth, trying to repair their ship. But just as they were about to leave, they noticed that the town was being invaded, so they tried to stop the threat. With the misunderstanding resolved, the aliens go in peace, and the townsfolk celebrate.
