His Dead Wife

A story like this always makes me wonder what would happen to our world if everyone who was ever wrongly murdered actually could simply come back from the dead for vengence? Not with scientific help mind you, but just plain old unwritten laws of the supernatural. I guess Earth would probably get pretty messy...

From the May 1953 issue of Mystic #20

Justice from beyond the grave.

It's ironic that the spy was the old man, despite the fact that HITLER is apparently living in the same village! Check out page 3, top right panel!

THIS IS ANOTHER NEAT ATLAS POST USING THE NO COLOR LIVING DEAD APPROACH, LIKE THE LAST REX LANE STORY. IT'S REALLY EFFECTIVE!

I like DiPreta alot but I'm never crazy about the color jobs on his horror stories. Everything is too pastel-ish or Eastery colorful, but I do agree with the other comment about the black and white ghost being a really nice touch.
