The Ghost Still Walks

I have a mound of chilling haunted Atlas tales lined up for you for the next few posts or so, and this one from genius Joe Sinnott is as good a place to start as any. FYI: I plan to start utilizing more of my color horror reprints from the 70’s because I’m noticing my lower grade golden era books don’t hold up so well during repeat handling throughout the scanning phase. All stories will be pre-code though, so have no fear my dears.

Originally presented in the May 1952 issue of Adventures into Weird Worlds #6

also doesnt matter where these scans come from if you have to use the silver age reprints thats ok by me!!!

OK, thanks for your permission, ha ha... I do want to do this avoid my Atlas golden age comics falling apart even more, but essentially the reprints are the same exact stories so if anyone has any complaints they can just as easily go to the other blogs on the web that have high rez scans of complete stories.

More Sinnott coming up in just a couple more posts too actually!

Joe Sinnot did a lot of work while in the same room as others,though he seemed to have enjoyed it,i notice an awful lot of stories he drew involve peer pressure and the cruelty done by,and to youth;ADVENTURES INTO TERROR #17's story "the vandals",is also about some stupid teenagers who get theirs,and "the witch in the woods" from MENACE #7 not only has a re-telling of "hansel and gretel" the ultimate child-neglect story,but has a beginning similar to CREEPSHOW,i wonder if this was somenthing personal,or just a coincidence(like how every Bill Everett story has humorous elements in it,even "Zombie!")since these are some of the only Sinnott stories i have seen,even in the 50's you can tell this guy was a talent with far more to be appreciated for than just becoming Kirbys ultimate inker!
