Formula for Death

Time for another disgustingly putrid Rudy Palais classic! You gotta love how much slime and bubbly ooze this guy can pack into a crackin’ four page mad scientist fest like this.

From the May 1952 issue of Chamber of Chills #8

I'll have to check and see what I have left from Palais, not sure it's a week's worth but...

"Seriously demented" is hardly an adequate word,more like;this is what the inside of Rosie o'Donnel looks like in one of Hieronymous Bosch and Dr. Pretorius and Ed Roth's congruent acid trip dream demented! in other words,it's the perfect comic book story.the chemicals harden and form volcanoes and craters,page 3,panel 1 looks like rape,and Zatruc's beard catches on fire!,all courtesy of the publishers of Casper the Friendly Ghost.hilariously inspired art too,Graham Ingel's would probably have blown his brains out in jealousy.

It's funny you mentioned rape, look at the blue monster's phallic right hand stump in the splash on page 1... anyone else wonder what that stuff is that he's squirting onto the rat?!!

After checking my collection I have about 2 weeks worth of Palais stories so you'll be sure to see more of him in posts to come. And as always, if anyone wants to contribute any scans just let me know.
