The Cannibal!

While you’re celebrating today over a nice hot meal with the lovely, controlling ladies in your life, here’s a tale about a stubborn little lady with another type of bone to pick! Bon app├ętit!

From the May 1954 issue of Out of the Shadows #13







+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
And how about some “Chilly Chuckles” to round out your weekend? Somebody really needs to collect all of these into a cool little funny book for kids.

I guess the ending was a lot less predictable in 1954. I love the YAAAA just the same.

Some people can eat anyone and still keep their figure.

SHE IS QUITE AN ACCOMPLISHED CANNIBAL TO BE ABLE TO STRIP THE BONES CLEAN AND STILL LEAVE PARTIAL CLOTHING ON HER VICTIMS!

LOVE THE CHILLY CHUCKLES TOO, CUTE FUNNY STUFF!

Yes, fun story. I especially like the splash page poking through the newspaper headlines- nice touch.

Was the Chilly Chuckles in that issue of Out of the Shadows? I, too , love cute little horror comics like that.

Yes, same issue... I'll be sure to include any other funny fillers as I find them. Harvey horror comics have alot of these horror gag strips too.

On the topic of cannibals in London, I'd recommend the 1972 movie Death Line. Like The Car it's an atmospherically eerie and badly underrated production.

Chilly Chuckles is a funny feature. Yes. Do run some more, when you can.

Haha! Great story! Just LOVE the twist, even though it was pretty predictable.

You notice how skeletons almost always keep their hair (not just in this story)? And usually they don't even muss the hairdo! I guess Libby is just that talented. Plus, how about the female victims? She ate 'em right through their clothes! Ooh, that sounded dirty...

She must have a real hollow leg though--4 full corpses, viscera and all, in 4 nights! Yaaaa!

I want to know what brand of breath mint she prefers. It must be the BEST.

It's easier to find in the US under the name "Raw Meat." And I second the recommendation
