Marriage of Death

Just when you think I’ve posted too many ACG yarns, along comes another instant classic from the bowels of my collection. This one is about a woman who marries Death… literally! There’s some exceptionally nice angles and eerie moments here, particularly those that take place in the morgue sequence.

From the July 1950 issue of Adventures into the Unknown #11

While they're usually guilty of stories about vampire kittens and men turning into insects, every once in awhile ACG will really surprise me with a haunting, somber tale like this, one that it really well written and almost poetic, like a Val Lewton film... The Seventh Victim definitely comes to mind.

YOU'RE RIGHT, THIS IS A SAD STORY WITH AWESOME HORROR IMAGERY IN THE MORGUE. I NOTICE THE ARTIST IS KEN BALD.......DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER STORIES BY HIM?

>KEN BALD.......DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER STORIES BY HIM?

Off the bat I'm not sure, I will check though. And if I've already posted anything by him I'm not remembering it, but of course many ACG guys never signed their work and GCD is still very limited on info for most issues so it's possible there may be an older Ken Bald story posted here without my knowledge.
