Foul Ball

Brian Hirsch has submitted another great set of scans for us for today, a strange revenge story concerning (of all things) baseball! It doesn’t technically fall under my normal guidelines of “horror” but it surely contains some horrific moments! Batter up!

From the November 1953 issue of Fight Against Crime #16

OW! THATS A ROUGH ENDING....VERY EC BUT YOU CAN TOTALLY TELL ITS NOT. STILL GOOD WRITING AND NICELY EXECUTED ART, I WAS CURIOUS ABOUT SOME OF THESE CRIME HORROR COMICS, GLAD YOU POSTED ONE.

Cool story, and I don't even understand baseball (bring British)...

I'm posting another crime/horror story tomorrow too. I like this one from Brian though, but is it just me or do the baseballs in the final panel look more like soft balls in size? Yeah, I'm being picky... it'd still hurt like hell even if it was ping pong balls.

Pretty damn good,the artwork was like a cross between Davis and Maneely,managing to accurately capture the dirty,ugly,sadistic,hard-edged world of baseball quite accurately,still it isn't as scary as little league game fights!

I thought I had the end figured out by page 6 with them probably putting him in front of an automated pitching machine or something, close enough I guess.

Neat story but I prefer vampires and zombies to be honest.
