weird mystery tales 14...

How's about some more "Weird Mystery Tales"? Ok! Here's issue 14, with a cool cover by Luis Dominguez. The EC Comics-esque "Blind Child's Bluff" is by Steve Skeates, with art by "Rubeny" (Ruben Yandoc). The also very EC-esque "The Price" is by E. Nelson Birdwell (wotta moniker!) with art by Alfredo Alcala. The issue's hippest and most comic tales, "Flight into Fright," is by George Kashdan with art by Ernie Chua. This issue introduces Eve the Witch taking over from the hooded Destiny, who looks not unlike EC Comics' Vault Keeper, and also Ralph Richardson as the Crypt Keeper in the 1972 film version of "Tales from the Crypt" (Destiny debuted in the first issue of "Weird Mystery Tales" that same year)...






Up next, more "Weird Mystery Tales," and film reviews for "Toxic Zombies" and "Microwave Massacre"...
