Are you totally unaware of the brand spankin’ new, big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s IT hitting theaters this week? If so, chances are you’ve been living in a sewer. And if you already know about these two kooky pre-code clown tales floating around in the THOIA Archive, then maybe find something else to do for a few days, or pay them a re-visit… because, you know, clowns are scary. It’s “Scary Clown Week”, right? Riiiiight. Uhhhh boy. Anyway, Kill, Clown, Kill! is from the April 1953 issue of Uncanny Tales #7 (yes, it’s actually another Atlas tale this year, and yes that’s a super cover by Bill Everett!); while Laugh, Clown, Laugh! first appeared in the August 1952 issue of Witches Tales #13. Anyway, I’m actually looking forward to the film, (it seriously can’t get worse than the TV version, could it?), and to anyone else who sees it, tell us what you thought. But for now, kill and laugh… laugh and kill… go, clown, go!
