Death While the Cat’s Away

I’m not 100% sure but I think that like yesterday’s post this is also Hy Fleishman art. The female faces are sort of the giveaway, but also up for comparison is the rotted flesh of yesterday’s post with the gruesome shredded flesh in today’s story. Cripes, that’s gotta hurt! Now, does anyone think the title of this tale makes any sense?

From the August 1953 issue of Dark Mysteries #13

Predictable but fun. My favorite part is the look on her face on page four. No caption necessary.

As Todd said , quite purrredictable , but all in all a good story ... I guess title is a ( lame ) joke on the idiomatic expression " the rats dance while the cat's away "...
Thanks

>" the rats dance while the cat's away "...


Or, "While the cats away, the mice will play..."

And don't forget, tomorrow marks the start of our weeklong tribute to the late great Alex Toth, in honor of what would've been his 80th birthday this Wed!
