"The 300% Solution"

Epic #47, January 1989 ($1.00)
"Perhaps you've known- About the stone-
That shines with awesome power-
So crystalline, it lies within-
The bold forbidding tower.
For centuries, all those who please-
Have done their best to claim it-
But though they've tried- to get inside-
No soul has yet to tame it.
Though all of them- do crave the gem-
No seeker can succeed.
But this I know- Arcadio-
Will do the daring deed."

"What everyone wants, nobody gets,
What nobody gets, everybody wants."
