The Vampire Cat

Countdown to Halloween: Post #2! More beastly, feline transformations for you today from the ghouls at ACG. Why is it anytime some jealous dame wants a guy she goes running off to the nearest witch for help?

From the March 1953 issue of Forbidden Worlds #15

VERY SIMILAR TO YESTERDAYS POST BUT MAYBE MORE FUN....I BET THIS IS THE ONLY STORY IN HISTORY WHERE THE HERO TRIES FIGHTING OFF A MONSTER WITH CAT NIP.

Yeah, pretty similar to yesterday's story in terms of setting and atmosphere but still very much it's own weird little tale. Despite the splash she's actually really frightening looking in her evil cat form on the last page.

Well there's no mistaking an ACE story for an ACG story, no matter how similar they are. My question for this story would be, "What did they do with the kitty cat afterwards?" Take it home? Give it some milk? The best thing would have probably been to put it in a burlap sack and throw it in the river... I know I couldn't live with it looking at me and knowing that it was actually just some crazy broad transformed.

Felt like a silly old b-movie from the 50's....totally entertaining but a little thin on real scares.

Since Vilma was a gypsy they coulda harvested the kitty's gypsy tears to protect themselves from venereal diseases.

Learned that from Borat.

Jinkies! Where's Shag and Scooby when Vilma's in trouble? Oops, I mean Velma...
