Room of Shadows

An attractively eerie Atlas pair-up of Mike Sekowsky and most likely Mike Peppe, from the July 1952 issue of Spellbound #5. Things might remain a bit spellbinding for the next few issues, stay tombed...

Gone is the Gargoyle

Ger calls this "one of Mort Drucker's earliest", and yes friends, it's another Atlas Tale, and this time it's from my incredibly water damaged copy of the October 1954 issue of Marvel Tales #127. This is seriously a particularly excellent issue, be sure to check the archive for "Skrak's Secret", "Buried Alive!", and "Vampires Also Die!".

The Face in the Picture

How about another weird classic from the Nov. '51 issue of Mystic #5? It's a 7 page story too (!!!) which seems unusually lengthy for an Atlas horror tale-- but I'm not complaining! I mean, the monster in the splash is pretty goofy, and you'll see that ending coming from a mile away, but the attractive Al Hartley girls really keep this one sailing along!

So. Everyone's behaving themselves nicely. And as long as this nice behavior stays consistent, then so will my own desire to post more Atlas tales. Seriously. The second anyone starts acting like a fucking little douche bag again --and you know who you are-- it's OVER. No more Atlas. EVER.

It Creeps By Night!

It's finally time to get October rolling with a hilariously messed-up quickie from the November 1951 issue of Mystic #5, with artwork credited to Hy Rosen. If the annoying Atlas a-hole commenters from a few years back can keep their lil baby ass bullshit comments to themselves I might actually get back to posting more Atlas tales again. It's up to them to behave themselves-- so here we go...
