Bride's Dowry of Doom

Celebrating a few things this week: first, the launch of Space Lord's awesome new, painstakingly extensive, gorgeously designed, and superbly informative  Ace Horror website (click HERE!), it's an unbelievable treasure trove of all things horrifically Ace! And secondly this week, THOIA obtained it's 900+ follower-- WOW! Thanks to all that continue to use this blog and share the weird wealth with their friends in fear! Today's great Ace tale and bonus quickie (as requested from the Space Lord himself) comes from the July 1952 issue of Web of Mystery #11!









BONUS QUICKIE!

Thank you very much, dear Doctor!
Again a most beautiful scan by one of Ace's great artists: Louis Zansky.
I made a count by the way and linked 66 Ace stories back to THOIA.
So when visiting ACE HORROR! you'll always return here.
Takes a bow:
Your partner in horror.

"You... er... must've been mistaken, Vince! Or maybe the blade turned aside at the last moment! Anyhoo, I - I'm not hurt!"

How many times have I heard THAT before??

Bondage, anyone?

Great art, but that last page looks awfully rushed. "Omly an hour left, and I've got to deliver this turd!"

For a minute there I was worried that fat-cat corporate oil interests might somehow end up getting punished for their actions here. But naw. This company had the forethought to hire a womanizing buffoon to act as a scapegoat. Whew.

And what a buffoon! Dig the crazy imagination on that disappearing ghost lady. Baby, you can't go out in public like that--you've got some evil on your face. Well, I guess vampires are in the headlines often enough that it *could* be a coincidence. A guy like that has so many comeuppances coming up that it's a damn shame that all he did was fall off a slippery rig.

"...evil must now go through to their horrible finish! You cannot prevent it!"

Uh, yes he can, and had a pretty good plan! The rope was a start, but it he build a safe room, he'd be as good as gold!

It's your interference that's screwing it up!

And I can't tell you the number of times I've said "I'm getting confused -- sleepy -- weak-willed!"

AIEEEEE!!!

>How many times have I heard THAT before??

Only everytime I marry a reincarnated horror.

>guy like that has so many comeuppances coming up that it's a damn shame that all he did was fall off a slippery rig.

Haha, yea... where as the ironical twist ending? The only jolt ending we got from this one was by suddenly getting jilted by the lack of irony!

>can't tell you the number of times I've said "I'm getting confused -- sleepy -- weak-willed!"

Tis sad but true... I'm about to say it right now myself but I got a couple blogs to update!

Thanks for the comments, and kudos again to Space Lord's kick ass new Ace site!
