Witches Feast at Dawn

A hungry graveyard ghoul is on the prowl in this grim offering from the November 1952 issue of Dark Mysteries #9 (artwork by A.C. Hollingsworth.)

Dark Mysteries had artwork that was lovably hasty (I love it for that very reason); but they had absolutely world class titles! "Witches Feast at Dawn" is absolutely horridful(I borrow a page from the good professor).

Hahahaha!

Oh, I need these breaks from the grad school grind!

A rattlesnake in a tree? Oy vay! Even the skull in the panel was laughing at that.

Old Ned died awfully quickly, nu?

And all of page five was all an absolute scream.
I agree. Dark Mysteries is GREAT!

MAN THIS ONE IS FULL OF MOMENTS! I AM SURPRISED NOBODY MENTIONED THE JANE RUSSELL SWIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF PAGE 4.

THE WITCH AD IS PRETTY COOL TOO!

The artwork, lettering, and story line were amateurish, like a fanmag homage to Ghastly Graham Ingels that didn't quite cut it.

If you've followed THOIA from the beginning then you know how I feel about A.C. Hollingsworth's art work. Still, alot can be said for a story even as crummy as "Witches Feast at Dawn"... I mean, why do we love bad b-movies?

I think you'll all enjoy the next post, it couldn't be any further on all levels from these last two posts.
