The last story in our Ace Comics Fest
this month is from the November 1952 issue of Baffling Mysteries #11
, and what a story it is, surely featuring the creepiest female to ever haunt the pages of a pre-code horror comic book! With her rotten, shrunken apple-esque head and disturbing lust for blood sacrifices, this is the kind of story that nightmares are truly made of!
And speaking of rotten, shrunken apple-esque heads, below is the one I made in 1975 with the Milton Bradley Shrunken Head apple sculpture kit that I got for my birthday that year. She's been slumbering at the bottom of a box for a few decades so her nose got a little smooshed, but look at those spooky beady eyes and icky teeth! Does anyone else still have their creation?
