Man Who Wasn't / Bored to Death

It's been an uncanny month and a half of posts, but today's double whammy of ultra bored, fog bound, Men of Meh marks the end of our Atlas Fest 2018, because starting with our next post we will get back to a more varied publisher mix. I do hope everyone enjoyed the uncanniness! Okay, our first story is from the October 1954 issue of Uncanny Tales #25, with art by John Tartaglione (now everyone knows where I got the original image for the first run of THOIA tee-shirts back in the day!) --and followed by a Doug Wildey chiller from the June 1954 issue of Uncanny Tales #21.

I Live with Corpses

Since everyone dug the Mort Lawrence story in our last post, here's another, and this time it's from the February 1954 issue of Uncanny Tales #17, --a rather gloomy, and very text heavy 5-pager with a time travel twist. Oh, and that incredibly terrifying cover is by big bad Bill Everett of course!

More Than Human

After a gruesome month of Atlas gems, it's seriously hard to switch publisher gears cold turkey, so maybe we'll do a few more, and later, ease into a more varied month as November progresses along. Sound swell to you? And let's start with a Mort Lawrence monstrosity from the April 1954 issue of Uncanny Tales #19.
