The Haunted Hunchback

Tale #3 from the March 1954 issue of Adventures into the Unknown #53 is a wonderfully woeful, tragically romantic tear-jerker from beyond the grave, and for those of you with a fetish for hunchbacks (or yellow vests), this just might make your week.

One more story from this issue to go, see it tomorrow!








TOMORROW: Death from the Depths!

TrueVision Ads

Even the ads in this issue were given the “3D” black border treatment... and if something pops out at you from the DRAW! ad example below, please do not blame me.

You weren't kidding. That's one of the saddest horror stories I've ever read.

The people at Disney Animation should consider of making a movie out of this , looks like Cinderella and the Little Mermaid + the Hunchback of NotreDame rolled into one ( hahahaha ! )!
Awesome stuff , thanks for sharing !

Ah, one moment of happiness. Poor Quadro. Charming story, he even could get out till three :-) And the pumpkin was in the ad *g

Apropos the ads: How to get along with girls? How to get along with boys? No wonder Wertham was scared. In the wrong hands this could be dangerous!!

"No he's not smiling," said the examiner in the red shirt, "that's just risus sardonicus, a postmortem rictus most often noted in patients suffering from facial muscle calamities like tetanus and the neurological degeneration associated with latter-stage rabies or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. As a matter of fact, the rapid onset of personality change, memory loss, dementia, hallucination, and ultimately severe ataxia associated with the latter, a human-transmissible spongiform encephalopathy, really accounts for the last several pages of this humpback's life."

"Golly," replied the examiner in the blue shirt, "that's not romantic at all!"

Ahhh - that really was sad. Poor hunchback...But he did have a rocking yellow vest there for a little while.

COOL SAD STORY. ITS KIND OF FUNNY WHEN THESE STORIES REACH FOR AN EMOTIONAL TUG, EVEN QUASIMODO NEEDS SOME LOVING.

Nice art by Lazarus. Gotta hand it to ACG, the grey tones really put atmoshphere to the story.

That made me cry at the end. But, I'm easy like that. I well up at the end of "Hocus Pocus" and "The Monster Squad," so that tells you something.

Poor little hunchback, he should have read the ads to be lucky in love.
I chuckle at the "no talent" line in the first ad because this is where most of DCs Wildstorm artists got their start.

Wow that's tragic.I'm glad they didn't spoil it by making him a murderer or somenthing so he would "deserve" his fate.it's also too bad no one could have set him up with Nina from HOUSE OF DRACULA.
