The Flat Man / Crazy Glass

A couple of flatso fright tales for you today, both from the May 1952 issue of Spellbound #3 –and if you check the Atlas Tales link a few words back with the THOIA Archive, you’ll discover that like our last post, this is also another FULL ISSUE PRESENTATION! Okay, some of you might remember the other much more hilariously violent “Flat Man” story I posted way back in 2007 (CLICK HERE), but I believe you will find this one smashing too– just pay close attention to what he says in the 5th panel on page 3 so you’re not dwelling on what seems like a giant stupid plot hole– PLUS, rounding everything out with the confusingly kooky “Crazy Glass” quickie.

SLIMMER! NOT FLATTER!!

The Knave of Diamonds

Time for the final tale from the June 1952 issue of Spellbound #4, and yes ladies and gents, this chalks up another full house, aka FULL ISSUE PRESENTATION here at THOIA! Did we save the best for last? Uhh no, not even close. But it’s still a fun, though predictably sledgehammered story of yet another loathsome idiot getting crushed by a diamond hungry blonde. Don Rico and Dick Ayers make a pretty good art duet though, even if their subject matter leaves ya groanin’ in the end.

A Monument to Hy Fleishman

It is with a very heavy heart we say goodbye to our good friend, Hy Fleishman, who passed away painlessly, and peacefully earlier this morning at the age of 92. One of THOIA’s favorite artists, Hy unquestionable propelled 1950’s horror comics (and beyond) into areas where few other artists dared to go, and the best way we can honor the man and his legacy is to present two wonderfully wild examples of what Hy excelled at most– THE HORRORVampire’s Bite! is from the December 1952 issue of Dark Mysteries #10, and A Monument to Mortimer! is from the July 1953 issue of Journey into Unknown Worlds #20.

And be sure to check the THOIA Archive for many more classics by Hy. Our deepest condolences once again to Hy’s family and friends, though with this sad news I will have some good news in the coming weeks regarding the Hy Fleishman collection that we (Yoe Books) have been working on for the last year. Stay tuned for more on that, coming soon…

The Horrible House!

Atlas had a habit of recycling story titles, like the wonderfully weird ‘n creepy Al Eadeh classic also called “The Horrible House” that I posted in the second half of a double feature way back in 2009, CLICK HERE. But this time it’s Bill LaCava’s turn to show you how horrible a house really can be– even when you unfortunately have a whole lot in common with its other unlucky inhabitants. I would love to see this as an old-time horror film quickie starring Basil Rathbone!

From the June 1952 issue of Spellbound #4.

And if you can’t save your own head– at least save your hair!
