Talisman of the Evil Brood

Before you read today's tale, heed this warning--- never scoff at the supernatural!

Yeah, for now... but I'll post more in the coming weeks, don't wanna over do it with just one publisher.

>IS THIS A LOU CAMERON STORY?

Doubtful, though some panels do have a certain Cameron flair. He does have a story in this same issue called The Unsleeping Dead that I posted a few months back so it's unlikely he'd have another full story included... I could be wrong though. Anyone know for sure?

Horror Pariah?

Keith?

I'm sad this is the last of this week's Ace tribute,it's my favorite so far.LOVE the designs of the demons,and i love the line about "no magic mumbo-jumbo,just the incantation!",hilariously oxymoronic.he kinda reminds me of Kirk Douglas in ACE IN THE HOLE.as for who drew this,sorry,im only good with Atlas and Harvey.

Well now I wish I had just gone ahead with a full week of Ace! Sorry to bum ya'll out, I'll try to bump up the Ace quota next month. In the meantime I will also try to find other stories of Ace quality. That is my solemn promise to you, as your Governor of Horror...
