Today marks the start of a four day tribute to Mysterious Adventures (The Early Years.) While these certainly are not the best written or best illustrated pre code horror stories of the 50’s (or even from this series), they certainly are some of the most inspired. And all four on display here this week represent a good example of the most intriguing and occasionally most ludicrous ideas I could find. Our first story for example, with its creepy concept of tiny cursed coffins that ominously grow in size to fit their intended occupant, is one of my favorites.
From the October 1951 issue of Mysterious Adventures #4
