The Frozen Death

For the next three days we’ll be taking an adventurous detour straight into the very heart of darkness… and to start things off let’s head up to the mountains for a shivery winter tale of love after death, and vice versa.

From the June 1954 issue of Adventures into Darkness #14

CRRRREEPY!what a bitch!good plot though,and the sci-fi element works well without seeming silly(Lovecraft derived?)my only question is,who inked it?i'd say Roussos if not for the cross-hatching.

Ger Apeldoorn said...

And why would Roussos not have used the cross-hatching? Either he or Mort meskin used it all the time on the jobs they did together at Prize. Or maybe that was just Mort Meskin and maybe he lend a hand to this Roussos job.

VERY "COOL" STORY. I WAS WONDERING WHO INKED THIS AS WELL.

Looks to me like Paul Reinman?

this is not a complaint but it feels like we never left the "weird women" theme from a few weeks ago.

Life is full of weird women, as are the remaining posts of 2007, give or take a few days.

She wore pants in 1903? Hm.

I found your blog as part of the Halloween-a-thon, by the way, and though I think this is my first comment, I've been reading every day since. I love it!

Good catch, Dane.

According to wikipedia: Although trousers for women did not become fashion items until the later 20th century, women began wearing men's trousers (suitably altered) for outdoor work a hundred years earlier.

So yeah, she wore pants in 1903. Not that great of a catch.
