And speaking of rotten, shrunken apple-esque heads, below is the one I made in 1975 with the Milton Bradley Shrunken Head apple sculpture kit that I got for my birthday that year. She's been slumbering at the bottom of a box for a few decades so her nose got a little smooshed, but look at those spooky beady eyes and icky teeth! Does anyone else still have their creation?

Sinister Return of the Priestess of Baal
The last story in our Ace Comics Fest this month is from the November 1952 issue of Baffling Mysteries #11, and what a story it is, surely featuring the creepiest female to ever haunt the pages of a pre-code horror comic book! With her rotten, shrunken apple-esque head and disturbing lust for blood sacrifices, this is the kind of story that nightmares are truly made of!
