One Must Die!

Axes of Evil coming at you on Double Post Saturday! Atlas of course was never one of the more gory pre-code publishers; but occasionally they unleashed a tale loaded with horrific implications that were far more gruesome than anything their competition relished in actually showing. For example, today’s first and cute little tale about a cute little couple caught up in a not so cute, not so little mess.

Originally presented in the Feb '53 issue of Adventures into Terror #16.

If this is a SAW-prequel it's certainly superior!.parts of it kinda remind me of MURDERS IN THE ZOO.

Uh, so they work together and bludgeon the hyenas to death with the axe?

Haha, great! Actually, this is a lot like the third story from the film The Strange World of Coffin Joe--well, maybe not a LOT like it, but there are similarities, especially the "Any one could kill their mate" part.

You should give it a look, Karswell! It might change your mind about old Ze! ;)
