Ghost Town

Let’s stay put within the unsafe pages of Mysterious Adventures #18 for yet another story to neatly wrap up our weekend as well as the month of September. This is a seriously great issue from front cover to back, chock full of wildly excessive tales of terror, and our story here today is no exception... uh, that is unless you’ve read EC’s Midnight Mess which came out a year before with the same exact plot! Who was it that said “blatant plagerism is the sincerest form of flattery?” Oh yeah, it was one of the writers for Mysterious Adventures.

From the February 1954 issue of Mysterious Adventures #18

"MIDNIGHT MESS" is one of the most famous E.C stories,i remember seeing an episode of Scooby Doo and reading a collection of horror stories for kids called "BITES" that were rip-off's of it,i wonder if any of these were inspired by I AM LEGEND?

The plot of the original EC version is also the first story in the Amicus Vault of Horror movie from '73 (now on DVD!)
