Ghost Story

If you thought the ghosts of our last post were interesting, --get a load of this supernatural thing-a-ma-jig! Only Bill Everett could / would come up with something as weird 'n wild for a simple 4 page prison petrifier such as this! From the July 1952 issue of Amazing Detective Cases #13.

This is the kind of story that would get the code people all up in arms. Killer gets to kill a cop and and a judge, and get away with it. Crime DOES pay!

Yeah, I love the weird alien ghost. It's so bizarre and different! I love the octopus arms, and not sure if he's supposed to be smoke or something else. It's very cool! I would hate to do away with the splash, but I might have picked a different one, just to leave the ghost reveal to that single panel.

The electrocution panels are aces. That's incredibly fine work.

Thank you for posting. I loved the fifth panel page three. Out of the way! Cops comin' through! In the next panel, does anybody have a guess as to what is under glass dome?
