Let’s do one more Charlton classic before we switch it back up with the various publisher mix. And okay, I’m not sure I saved the best story for last, but it’s definitely a weird winner, and contains an interesting plot device that I do believe is new to this blog– a sex change! Yep, edgy stuff for the 50’s, and you’re seriously going to love that second panel at the top of page three. From the January – February 1954 issue of Strange Suspense Stories #16, art by Dick Giordano again.

You Know Too Much!

Another attack on the American family tale, courtesy of the July 1954 issue of Strange Suspense Stories #19 (see previous post too.) And yes, at some point along the way here you’ll probably see where it’s all going, but that’s not enough for this story, giving you one final chilling thing to think about as you lay there dying and completely helpless to do anything about it. And that my friends, is REAL HORROR.

Classic cover by Steve Ditko

We’ll stick with the strange and suspenseful stories for a few more posts, and here’s one by good ‘ol Steve Ditko from the May 1954 issue of Strange Suspense Stories #18. I’ve had a few requests for more precode Ditko, so here ya’s go with one of his most eerie entries ever– and in case you didn’t see our reprint of it in Haunted Horror #29.

When you’re addicted to horror comics…

"Killer’s Arms"

This nicely illustrated tale of jungle brutality from the November 1954 issue of Strange Suspense Stories #22 just might contain the single most screwball scientific experiment concept ever posted here. It’s too hilarious and way too fun to deny– Hell, even Ed Wood would be jealous of this plot! And you thought last week’s “brain atoms” was over the top…

Sinister Snake Cult of Brother Rath!

We’ve seen an unholy plethora of horrors here at THOIA over the years: monsters roaming the night in search of gory feasts, epic terror from beyond the stars, pissed off xmas trees, etc. But one thing possibly more terrifying than all others, is the all too human religious fanatic performing bat$hit evil in the name of “God.” As is the case of todays atmospheric action adventure featuring the crime fightin’ wits of “The Echo”, ie: a mild-mannered ventriloquist with the occasionally convincing ability to throw his voice around and, okay whatever, plus his siblings (uh, Dr. Doom?!!) vs. a viciously violent, snake handlin’ psychopath cult! The story clips along nicely, with the real highlight being the frantically fun, oddly eerie artwork (and lettering) by Paul Gattuso which adds a whole other level of unique crazy to the peculiar proceedings. Originally featured in the Oct ’45 issue of Dynamic Comics #16, this one also slithered its way into Mike Howlett’s super chilling SNAKE TALES hardcover collection. CLICK HERE for more info!

The Ripper’s Return

One more from the Sept ’52 issue of Tales of Horror #2 (see previous post for another), and it’s a short, but oddly entertaining mix of Jack the Ripper and muddled, mad science. And despite the usual kooky perspective issues, the Hollingsworth art is actually pretty solid here for once too.

“All hear my warning, never turn your back on–
THE RIPPER!”
