The Evil Cornucopia

Knocking out story #3 from the June 1953 issue of Adventures into Darkness #10, featuring nice Toth-esque art that I'm sure someone else can (and will) properly identify for us. Also today we've included a one page bonus and cool vintage ad, and with one more tale to go to fully wrap up this great AiD issue, we've somehow made July 2010 an all Standard Comics Issue Month! Want another entire month from a single publisher? Let us know your thoughts...

The penciler is Mike Sekowsky. I'm guessing Mike Peppe on inks, but couldn't say for sure.

That Mortheo does have a wicked sense of humor. Although like most self-serving sociopaths, Derek did bring his fate on himself when all is said and done.

You know, there is something reminiscent in this artwork about the great Don Heck.

Yup. Sekowsky. And either Peppe or Celardo on inks, I'm guessing.

Thanks Steven!

As do most pre-code A-holes!

I see it too.

One more story to go (COMING UP NEXT!)

Oh, like you never got hit over the head with a cornucopia before, Prof...

I would say definitely Sekwosky and Peppe, mainly from comparing other Standard Comic stories.

Thanks for the comments, and I hope everyone is having a great summer. Got a suggestion or submission for THOIA? Drop me line anytime and let me know.

Yp, celardo made Sekowsky look 'dirtier'.
