Had a request for something from THE THING
a few months back (forget who it was though, sorry!) So, from the July '53 issue of THE THING #9
, it's a dreadfully illustrated robo-yarn from John Belfi
, but still fun none the less, and seriously saved by some madcap writing and a couple gory SOTI
face stompin' panels (plus: look closely at the head at the bottom of the splash page! Ow!)
And congratulations again to Mr. Cavin,
he's the big winner of the DRAW BOB HOPE Contest!
Special kudos again to all who entered... (Mr. C, Lily, Jamieson
, please see the comments from Saturday's post for more!)

writes in: "I've recently been reading more horror comics than usual and thinking about how or even if they work. I wrote a blog post discussing it and I'd like to hear some opinions from people who have read more horror comics than me on whether or not they think comics can actually be scary and perhaps which ones have scared them."
Can comics be scary? Click HERE
and let Joe know what you think.
Haven't posted a text story here in awhile, so from the same issue of THE THING #9
, comes the quaintly titled--- The Skull Stretchers!
