The Unburied Mummy

It’s been a month or so since we had a spooky mummy story… so here you go! “Spooky Mummy Friday” lumberin’ atcha--- and some great Bob Powell artwork too!

From the June 1952 issue of Witches Tales #11

Thanks for posting this story. Years ago, I hung out at weekend flea markets and picked up all of Bob Powell's Harvey horror I could find. They could be had for a song then, compared to today. But for me at the time, even $5 - $10 for a comic was a lot.

The few I got, I sold or turned over into other comics within a few years. So they live for me mainly as a memory now. So thanks for this beautiful blast of horror and nostalgia.

I fear those days are long gone... I barely find anything good at flea markets anymore too, even from the silver or bronze age.

Great artwork!love the evil face of the mummy!i remember that in THE COMIC BOOK-BOOK,Don Thompson describes a story about "mummies sucking peoples guts out through their mouths" wonder if this was it?,it's certainly tamer than he made it out to be if it is.

I just noticed on page four, bottom panel on the left... you can see some pink color on the mummy's neck. It gives the impression that he's just some dude wearing a mummy mask.

When oh when will these mad scientists learn? No good ever comes of reanimating the dead!
But it is fun to watch them wreak havoc.
