The Isle of the Dead

Mardi Gras reared its drunken head last week, and with the overload abundance of boobs 'n booze on display, no one hardly noticed that just at the edge of town, the dead were having a dance celebration of their own in the local cemetery! Reminds me of a story I once read in the Nov '73 issue of Twilight Zone #53... featuring a much better intro by a typically off model Rod Serling illustration.

Friday the 13th Club

I've had this fun DC chiller saved for a while now, just waiting for a Friday the 13th to post it. Unfortunately, we don't have another F13 coming up until May-- arghhh!!-- so what the heck, Saturday the 13th is close enough. Featuring some slick pencil work from legendary artist Curt Swan, this tale originally appeared in the June - July '52 issue of House of Mystery #4. If you love old 1940's RKO murder mysteries as much as I do, then you'll surely enjoy this one. Plus, I'll have another eerie Curt Swan classic up next...

My latest collection for IDW / Yoe Books, DEVIL TALES is in stores this week (a few weeks earlier than reported too!) Featuring two dozen tales of satanic shenanigans from the 1950's precode comic book era, with art by legendary greats Dick Ayers, Bob Powell, Gene Colan, Lin Streeter, Lou Cameron, Ross Andru, and more! Click HERE to sell your soul by ordering online! And as we've seen over the last month of posts, the tales of demonic evil don't end there as we have an encore presentation of an Iger Shop classic from the March 1953 issue of Journey into Fear #12, --and unlike our previous posts, this tale actually is featured in the new DEVIL TALES collection! After you read it, head over to my other blog HERE for another great tale from the book! HAIL!!!
