Club Horror

From the May 1953 issue of Mysteries Weird & Strange #1, you really gotta love a story featuring a splash page full of fleshless faces, busted skulls, and zombie brains on display!

Cool story, although I call foul that she bet on his behalf. Great ghost story in any case, with nothing cheesy to take away from the effect!

Maybe I've read too many old horror comics, but I think that looking like he does in the second panel of page 7 would be a pretty damn cool way to spend the last year of your life.

HAA! I AGREE WITH TREVOR, MAKE ME A ZOMBIE AND LEAD ME TO THE CREEPY GAMBLING DEN! I AGREE WITH TODD TOO THIS IS A VERY COOL STORY. THE ART SEEMS CLEANER THAN MOST SUPERIOR STORIES WITH LESS OF THE IGER HOUSE STYLE, ITS STILL THERE BUT DIFFERENT SOMEHOW.

I really dug this one. I'm with Todd on her betting for him and then him losing, but like she said, he never had a chance after all. I guess that's what you get for gambling right after an old friend blows his brains out in front of you!

I was also glad it didn't cop out with a dream sequence.

Thanks for the comments today so far... I'm actually thinking about maybe posting the rest of this issue, it's full of total insanity.

I think I could get behind that.

Excellent. For every time you read a hackneyed story that's been done before, there's an amazingly original little gem like this(And it predates THE SEVENTH SEAL, too!!).

I loved reading the 2nd and 3rd comments. Sometimes I wonder how close us horror fans are to real monsters.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
