A Powelloween celebration

We usually don't get into golden age comic books or pre-Comics Code horror comics, but with Halloween in two days who could resist these stories by Bob Powell from the Harvey horror comics of the early 1950s? They're beautifully drawn, they're strange, odd, delirious, weird...just right to read while outside the wind howls and skeletal fingers tap at your doors, the chains rattle in the attic, the moans come from the basement, and the red-eyed vampires peer in the windows...

Pappy provided the scans for "Servants of the Tomb." Thanks, Pap.
