Tomb For Two

Alright, since everyone’s gag reflexes are working overtime let’s take a breather for a few posts and settle in with a nice romantic love story double feature… how’s that sound? I’m sure you all could use a happy ending right about now anyway, right? Riiiight. Grab a hanky because this one may just leave a tear in your eye.

From the March 1952 issue of Journey Into Fear #6 comes--- Tomb For Two!

When Achan son of Zerah acted unfaithfully regarding the devoted things, did not wrath come upon the whole community of Israel? He was not the only one who died for his sin.' "
Joshua 22:19-21

These comics rot your mind! What would Jesus do?

For a fire has been kindled by my wrath, one that burns to the realm of death below. It will devour the earth and its harvests and set afire the foundations of the mountains.
Deuteronomy 32:21-23

Ha ha! I'm totally kidding. Bible quoters are LAME! Why are you reading this blog about horror comics? Should you be out protesting the new Harry Potter book?

Necrophilia and suicide endings make for great "Grade A" wholesome family entertainment!

Horror after the Honeymoon would have been a better title.

I really like this one. No monsters or ghosts (those are great too, but it's a change of pace) -- just a man driven crazy and what, at least to me, is a happy ending. Except for the taxidermist. That guy got the short end of the stick!

Art was pretty shaky, but the story saved it.

I actually like the Iger shop art. It's funny how a lot of the same characters pop up in all their different stories.
Suicide is a re-occuring theme for their stories. I think their writer, Ruth Roche thought suicide was romantic. People used to think it was.
There was a book that was a popular sensation, I think by Goethe, in the nineteenth century that apparently caused a Wertham type panic in its time. It became fashionable for young people to commit suicide to prove their love, just like the fictional lover.
