He would have been only forty when this comic was published.

If I'm ever filthy rich I'm going to have my butler wear a bright green tailcoat, too. Why not?

Man the cover on this mag is good.

Karswell said...

I'll have a large scan of the cover to accompanying the next story post-- stay tuned!

The panels are a bit busy in this one, but I like it. Predictable, but with the suspense intact.

Page 5/Panel 3, somebody was aping Ghastly a bit.

Strange Stories from Another World was a ... strange ... comic. You can have clunkers like the last story, and then well written stories like this one.

"Fate wrote in scalding letters of fire"....overwritten much?

Karswell said...

I agree: busy, predictable, suspenseful, swipe-filled, strange, clunky, well written and over written... hell, SSfromAW had it all!

Last story from this ish coming up!
