As many of you already know, a sense of hellacious humor was just as much a key at precode Atlas as their marvelous artistry and horror themes. And a tried and true approach to their mixture: characters that are so obnoxiously exaggerated, you can’t help but applaud their inevitable rude awakening and / or end demise.

“Oh rats!”, said the anti-Atlas oddballs. Yep, it’s another riveting tale from the May 1952 issue of Mystery Tales #2, (see the previous post as well.) And some of you proud precoders probably don’t even need to look at the signature in the splash panel to know the late great Bill Everett when you see it!

And thanks to the Atlas Tales site for the first page scan of this story, it’s unfortunately missing from my tattered old copy. –K

A Killer in the Street

A criminally fun tale of terror stalking the night, and like our last post it’s another entry from the February 1953 issue of Mystery Tales #8 –containing yet another awesome Bill Everett cover too! Murderously moody Reinman art fills this one with great atmosphere, and I’m not 100% sure, but I do believe you’ll likely figure it all out by the the end of page one, or page 2 at the most.
