Strange Superstitions

I love these one page fillers that Harvey always included to round out an issue. Their spin on even the most mundane, non-horrific subject matter is typically hysterical. For instance, do you think broken mirrors merely give you seven years bad luck? Think again. According to this article broken mirrors are said to “shatter the hopes of good and are forerunners of horror as black as the night!” Seeeeee mom, comics are educational!

"Evil believes in the ebony of the feline!"

"Good--and Evil--events occur in series of three believe the superstitious as they wait out their fate!"

Man, that's some heavy duty ominous intonations right there! I wonder if English was the author's first language...

And I don't believe 7 out of 10 people are superstitious. That just sounds uncanny to me. :)

>bad day for the number 3 guy.

And then the poorly constructed walls of his ramshackle hut collapses in on him and catches fire.

Damn you, Number 3!!!

I always thought that the three cigarettes thing was because lighting three cigarettes at night might give an enemy sniper time to aim at the light.
