THOIA is proud to kick off the new month with one of the most horrifying precode tales ever told! Originally presented in the October 1953 issue of Weird Mysteries #7, it's only 4 pages long, but the Trapani / Finocchiaro art team-up really packs a nerve wranglin' wallop! So hang on tight, and read it all the way to the very end-- don't be a baby-- just keep repeating to yourself, "it's only a story... it's only a story..."
April Fool's Day! (Those of you that purchase our Chilling Archives of Horror Comics hardcover editions might remember we presented this story as a bonus in our Haunted Horror: Pre-Code Comics So Scary, They're Good! Volume 3 collection. The original art scans come from the personal collection of one of our favorite HH contributors, deadly Dave O'Dell.)
