What was the significance of the comic book the scary, ageless Richard Alpert offered to John Locke on Lost? Now you can figure it out for yourself.

So what does Mystery Tales reveal? Well, you'll have to wait until they've loaded every page but so far there are incredible similarities in some of the stories for example main character Fredd Phipps is a bookkeeper (just like Locke), there's a Charles Widmore-esque character, and one tale points to ancient civilizations (the original others?).
