Cult of Evil

Moving right along here in Harvey Hell (or “Heaven” if that’s how you wanna play), today we have a cute Lee Elias classic with a whimsical array of violent stabbings and bloody black magic to enlighten your wonderfully cheery weekend. Tra-la-la-la-lahhhhh…

From the July 1952 issue of Tomb of Terror #2

OOOOO THIS ONE IS EVEN BETTER THAN THE PALAIS POST!

YOUR STORY INTROS ARE REALLY FUNNY TODAY TOO, SUCH A LIGHT HEARTED MOOD AFTER THE NEWS ABOUT VAMPIRA

>SUCH A LIGHT HEARTED MOOD AFTER THE NEWS ABOUT VAMPIRA

Well anyone who knew Maila knows she had a wonderful sense of humor, and The Vampira Show was just as hilarious as it was sexy and spooky, maybe even more so. Despite her influence on the goth culture, I seriously doubt she'd want everyone being all gloomy this weekend and moping around like a buncha Roderick Usher wannabees.

I agree,even if it lacks Palais's crazy layouts,Elias is always good for a classy art job(also agree about Vampira,i think it's better to pop in PLAN 9 and the Misfit's song than mope.)as for the story and its leading man;well,i know its a fairly popular film with you guys,but wouldn't this plot've been a 1000 times better for THE MAD MAGICIAN?.

He's definitely my favorite Harvey cover artist too. I also agree about his shit.

If you added in a portable crematorium then yes, absolutes!

"Black magic is dark as night and blood is bright as terror."
The cheesiness of that intro was a perfect lead-in. The best horror is often topped with a liberal helping of cheese.
