    Cover by Ken Bald. Edited by Norman Fruman. Art by Paul Gustavson, Harry Lazarus, John Rosenberger, Sheldon Moldoff, Ed Good, and Kenneth Landau. A pre-Code horror comic in the vein of the famous EC horror comics, but the stories are a good deal less grisly. A gambler in debt to gangsters tries to trick his parents into giving him money with a fake kidnapping and wax body parts; A greedy native-art exporter steals the wrong shrunken heads; Two strange deaths occur at a carnival, leaving police mystified. Includes words like Shock! and Terror! on the cover, in a font very similar to the EC horror comics it imitates. The Real McCoy; Flowering Death!; The Tiny Heads!; Yawning Graves; Death of a Doll!; Vampires? Dont Make Me Laugh!; The Trainer. 32 pages, Full Color. Cover price $0.10.
