Adventures into Witchcraft

I told you we'd be delving into the witchcraft this week, in fact, we're going to make an eerie adventure out of it! And here's a freaky fun one from Harry Lazarus and the Oct-Nov. 1952 issue of Out of the Night #5, highlighted by a menacing redheaded spirit and a cool, creepy twist on the voodoo doll.










And for those of you lucky enough to live in Los Angeles, Friday night, Oct. 28th, the Captured Aural Phantasy Theater are resurrecting another rousing night of pre-code horrors brought to screaming life on the stage. Witness jolting tales of terror from such great titles as Shock Suspenstories, Astonishing, Strange Mysteries, and many more surprises! Click HERE for more info!

Art isn't much, but the story itself was pretty entertaining and I laughed a few times. I can only imagine the writer had a lot of fun writing it. Loved the set up -- as if some bottom of barrel 1950's comic book writer is off to Egypt for a month of research into the supernatural for his stories. haha!

Truth be told, the reason that the late '30s through the early '50s were called “the Golden Age” of comic books was that the girlfriends and wives of comic-book writers and artists were beautiful women. (Also, the big dough that writers and artists earned didn't hurt.)
