The Repulsive Dwarf / The Nightmare Men

The last Wally Wood story from the February 1955 issue of This is Suspense #23 (originally presented in the May 1950 issue of A Star Presentation #3), PLUS! a Marvel / Atlas story submission from THOIA reader Ben Evans, "The Nightmare Men" by Mac Pakula, originally presented in the June 1957 issue of Strange Tales of the Unusual #10. Says Ben, "This is more or less what I always interpreted Dream Police by Cheap Trick as being about." Haha, thanks again for the scans Ben!

both highly enjoyable but the dwarf was too colorful to be entirely repulsive...but i still wouldn't marry him!

Karswell: That first Wood story is economic brillince. That is the way to tell a short, comic book story that expands in the mind. "The love in my heart cannot stand this much longer! I must destroy formirmand!" What other choice? Any man that has ever loved a woman knows that green-eyed monster! Go, repulsive dwarf! -- Mykal

I left this Wally Wood gem up a little longer hoping to generate more comments, but meh... anyway, thanks to those of you that did comment, I'll get another post up sometime soon.

And don't forget to check out Mykal's new Eerie Pub blog called THE BLOODY PULP, (linked on my sidebar.)

I'm glad you left it up a bit more, Kars! I looked at it again and liked it even more the second time!

I second what you say... Mykal's THE BLOODY PULP is a great new blog!
