Instead today we’re gonna tide you over with a classic Ace creeper featuring possibly the greatest title of any story I’ve ever posted here. Enjoy!

Stolen Skin / Out of the Grave

Today, THOIA takes you on a trip through the undisputed darkest chapter in evil modern human history, on this, the 120th anniversary of the birth of the most sinister creature to ever walk the face of the Earth: Adolf Hitler. It’s a double shot of revolting nazi nasties, the latter from the grimmer depths of Farrell Publication pre-code tastelessness, while our first tale is another Flash Forward presentation from the November 1981 issue of DC's Weird War Tales #105. Umm, enjoy?

What? You didn't know that Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolfman (and Medusa) battled nazis together in WW2? Get the scoop on The Creature Commandos by clicking HERE!
