"The Man Who Lost His Shadow!" is the first story in Tales of Horror #5 from 1953, with art presented by the great tag-team creative duo of Ben Brown & David Gantz. These guys did some super fine work together in the pre-codes and THOIA has posted quite a few of their tales from a variety of publishers, most notably for Atlas, but especially fun is the insane numbskullery of the perplexing Purple Claw series (check the archives by clicking HERE!)

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT THE HORRORS OF IT ALL:
"...incessantly awesome... a wealth of classic horror strips reproduced in all their crude, four-color glory..." ---Frankensteinia
"...an essential horror comics blog. Pre-code goodness through and through!" ---Mike Howlett(The Weird World of Eerie Publications)
"I love your blog, I check it every single day!" ---Craig Yoe
"...the capital of online comic book horrors... saying "Not the best story THOIA has run" is a bit like saying "one of Beethoven's lesser symphonies!" ---Quasar Dragon
"...the object of all horror chicks' wet dreams... a comixkaze of awesome!" ---Killer Kittens
"...an online repository of vintage comic fear fare where individual stories from long out-of-print issues are posted in high resolution, page by page. For a fan of EC, Atlas and other Silver Age-era comic companies, it is pure heaven (and hell)..." ---Bryan Reesman (Attention Deficit Delirium)
"...a skeletal slew of complete scans of pre-code comics..." ---Sweet Skulls
