If Flesh Could Crawl…

Sorry to do this, but you’re going to have to wait a few more days for the Nostrand / Kremer Double Header, but trust me--- it will definitely be worth the wait! Instead today we’re gonna tide you over with a classic Ace creeper featuring possibly the greatest title of any story I’ve ever posted here. Enjoy!

From the July 1953 issue of The Beyond #21

The art looks very familiar, but I can't identify it. Whoever did it is great, but a bit lazy, what with his frequent use of silhouettes to represent the horrible monsters (who really aren't that horrible to begin with, are they?). Nevertheless, his ink line is beautiful.

Sort of a dead end story, but still fun. And the fact that it uses a colonial Dutch setting for the "white man tames savage island" portion of the tale is very interesting. Social commentary? Pre-haps.

THAT IS A GREAT TITLE FOR A STORY! LOVE THE ART HERE AND DISAGREE ABOUT THE USE OF SILHOUETE, I THINK IT ADDS AN EERIE QUALITY TO THE SPIRITS. A TYPICALLY COOL ACE POST KARS, THANKS AGAIN!!!!!
