Terror on TV

Continuing where we left off yesterday with even more televised evil, this story comes from the same Weird Chills issue as the Clumsy post from Nov 2nd. I should probably just spotlight this entire issue one of these days because every tale is great--- sinister parrots, the boogey man. Well, maybe not the parrot story...

From the Nov. 1954 issue of Weird Chills #3

Atlas vs Marvel designation....

I know that Atlas was a precursor to Marvel. Some references refer to Atlas titles as Marvel titles.

Does anyone has more info (or point me to) about the distiction between the two and when Atlas starting being called Marvel all time (was in the early 60's when Spiderman came out?).

>Does anyone has more info

Search "Atlas Comics" on Wikipedia, it's pretty thorough in explaining everything, or here:

I didn't realize you'd posted this. Man, no wonder this was the last issue.
