Heads Will Roll

I’ve posted many Paul Reinman stories in the past, and this is by far one of his best. Top notch work here in all areas: inking, lay-out, colors, detail, spookiness… bravo!

From the April 1954 issue of Adventures into Weird Worlds #28

Nice...though compared to the other ones you've been posting lately, this one seems positively low-key! Still, interesting variation on "The Tell-Tale Heart"--call it "The Hollering Head!" ;)

I DISAGREE WITH THR VICAR, THIS ONE HAS BEEN MY FAVORITE SO FAR THIS WEEK. THE OTHER STORIES WERE GREAT BUT THEY WERE MORE CAMPY, I ACTUALLY FELT A CHILL GO UP MY SPINE READING TODAYS POST!

MORE REINMAN PLEASE!

I didn't say it was bad, just that it was less crazy! ;)

>call it "The Hollering Head!"

Ha ha... good one. But yeah you're right, very much like Telltale Heart. If you missed it the first time take a look at Trophies of Doom that I posted back in December, it's another fine tale of decapitated horrors:

Haven't commented for a while but I've been here everyday. Great little story today, more on the horriffic side.

You have been doing a fantastic job with the site. Love it.

I agree that the Reinman piece is a gem, but then the previous Fass selection was nice & wonky too.

I'm easy to please!

Reinman could ink circles around any modern day inker with his eyes closed, this story is fabulous.

This is the best severed-head-on-a-stick story I've ever read! It's the pike's peak!

Ha ha... imagine if Jay Scott Pike had illustrated this one!
