What the heck, let's extend our Week of Werewolves for one more post with this delicious journey into fur-- errr, the Sept '53 issue of Journey into Fear #15, I mean! You can also find this great story reprinted in HAUNTED HORROR #2! I get emails all the time from people saying they still can't find the early HH issues, the first three (for those that need reminding) can also be found in our HAUNTED HORROR collected hardcover as well, click HERE! Hope everyone enjoyed the themed subject matter, we'll do another week of something gruesome next month (or maybe sci-fi or mad scientists as some of you suggested) --I'll start scouring the Karswell archives!

In our last post we saw a werewolf that stalked, now this time we got one that likes to lurk 'n leer at leggy ladies in lingerie! It's a wild bit of lycan lunacy from the May 1952 issue of Journey into Fear #7, and hmm - tra - la - la, why it looks like a werewolf took a bite out of my cover-- wah!

An interesting ACG nazi (were)wolf tale from the Dec - Jan 1950 issue of Adventures into the Unknown #14, --it's a bit on the predictable side but still a lot of fun, and the oddly eerie transformation panels certainly make it worth the read. I really enjoy Bill Ely's artwork, it's perfectly suited to the story and helps move the wordy drama along nicely like an old B-film from the 40's or 50's. (Cool cave man cover art by Ogden Whitney.)

Post #2 in our wild 'n wooly Week of Werewolves fest, and like our last entry it's another one from DC's Weird Mystery Tales (and also written by David Michelinie), this time the Dec - Jan 1974-75 issue of Weird Mystery Tales #15. The ferociously bold line work from Rubeny is the real highlight here-- and there's the tremendous Luis Dominguez cover tease that a few of you commented on a while back when I posted a DC ad bonus that featured a smaller thumbnail version of it-- now you can see it better in all of it's full sized glory. More lycanthropes coming your way, stay tombed...

Back in January I posted a freaky Frank Robbins vampire tale (click HERE if you missed it), and now today I have another great one illustrated by him as we kick off March 2014 with a Week of Werewolf posts! Today's terrifically illustrated howler comes from the Feb - March 1975 issue of Weird Mystery Tales Vol. 4 #16, and David Michelinie's story is a bit reminiscent of I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957) --a horror film classic that's a favorite here in Karswell's Kastle!

The fourth and final bedeviling tale in our full issue presentation of the June 1952 issue of The Beyond #12 (see the previous three posts for all of them) --you have to admit, while not the best written stories, these certainly are inspired and over the top, containing really nice artwork (today's story art by Richard Case.) Seems with Ace Magazines, the more bat shit the concepts the more entertaining the issue. This'll wrap things up for Feb 2014-- lots more coming up!

A nice 'n spooky tale full of weird moments and atmospheric art from the June 1952 issue of The Beyond #12. You don't need a crystal ball to see we're in the midst of another full issue presentation here a THOIA-- and one more tale to go! See ya in a few from the bedeviling wrap-up!
