Terror Below! / Terror in Time

For those of you that raved about the Al Eadeh story in our last post, here’s a double dose of terrors for you that further showcase his brilliantly bizarre, brain damaged style. The first tale comes from the July 1954 issue of Mystic #32, and the second from the December 1953 issue of Spellbound #18. Enjoy!

French/Indian War, Salem Witch Hunt...so who's keeping track of historic dates? Now I know why that doo wop song that goes, "don't know much about history" was so popular back when this comic hit the stands.

I gotta say that I'm now convinced of Eadeh's brilliance after reading these two tales. I was on the borderline with the last one about the house sinking. I now stand a converted man.

So I guess he did die in the name of science. Paul Armstrong would be so proud.

Al sure could draw sexy '50's chicks. That Gloria was cute but what a tramp!

Al Eadeh is great. I first discovered him in Marvel Tales #126 posted at Crosseyed Cyclops. I put a plug for this Atlas fest over there. Thanks Karswell.

More great Eadeh!! Cool. Two pretty goofy stories (the 2nd one seems to have almost been made up by the writer as he went along, what with the preposterous batwings get-up at the beginning and all) but Eadeh overcomes such handicaps. And these two tales show the artist's breadth as an illustrator. He clearly could draw straight when he wanted to, but thank God he didn't always want to.

This little bit of fantastically written detail is hardly a handicap, I read it as a supremely clever moment demonstrating to what ridiculous lengths our hero will go to master his magic. But I totally agree with you on Al's "straight style" vs his scratchy style. And let's thank the Devil instead for it.

And thank you all for the commens (and plugs) today... stay with us as Dick Ayers is up next with another tale from Spellbound!
