Time to venture back into the odd old west for a tale that’s half spooky / half silly, and 100% howlin’ Harvey at this late precode horror / humor vein stage of the 50’s game. Yeah, everybody could see Wertham’s hammer of doom a’fallen’, so many of these terror titles began to take the hint and turn up the funny volume. Things went from gory to corny fast, but not all was lost, like this hairy scary (*tag! *gag!) from the Feb ’54 issue of Witches Tales #23. And FYI: There’s even more wig weirdness in the archive if you’ve got a hankerin’ to dig ’em out– just don’t ever say that Mr. Karswell didn’t go to great lengths to root out that ‘ol black humor for ya’s!
