Whom the Image Strikes

Keeping things Ace around here for a few more posts, and how about another one from the March 1952 issue of Hand of Fate #22. Never has a story exposed the petrifying pros and corny cons of dabblin' in demonlogy as today's foolishly freaky feature!

Creepers, a demon straight out of the petting zoo.
Down, you demons! Shoooo!
Good ol' underestimated ACE horror.
Is it the devil'a advocate or the advocate's devil now?
That's one of the most laughable final panels in pre-code horror history.
One lawyer whacking the other over the beano with the THING that looks like it came out of a bubble gum machine in the 80s.

Haha, indeed... I thought the thing looked like some mish mashed sci fi prop leftover from an unmade Outer Limits episode. Alot of fun this one... got a few more Aces up my sleeve for the rest of the month, thanks for the comments.

And thanks for the kind words about the Powell book, there are more Chilling Archive editions in the works, and all will be revealed in time... thanks for your interest!

The Powell book (as are all Yoe Books) make great Xmas presents too, so order some today for your smarter, cooler family or friends! Dont just take my word for it, USA Today ranks Bob Powells Terror as one of the top 10 books of 2011, check it:
