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 posts, stay tombed...

Quick little horror tale. Good read.

Good and eerie it was!

The fly in the ointment for me with so many of these stories is the trigger-happy police. And here it's with someone who MIGHT be the suspect, who's unarmed and fleeing!

(Not to get too political, but that part could be from any of a hundred true stories from the past few years!)

This one is well done.The page of Rita's dream is especially beautiful.

I'm going to have to disagree a bit with the earlier comments. It's good, it has atmosphere, but I don't think it's up to the normal Atlas quality. Not every single story can be great.

It's certainly heads and shoulders above most other early 50s horror comics, but the art seems rushed, the coloring is a little gaudy, and the story is a little convenient.

And I'm with Grant on the trigger happy cops, but again, that's convenient story writing.
