Sweet Revenge

Journey Into Fear 15-27-st4

Journey Into Fear #15 (Superior Publishers Ltd., September 1953) was one of many Pre-Code horror titles that received the (dubious?) honor of appearing in Dr. Frederic Wertham’s Seduction Of The Innocent.

A quick scan of the issue makes it apparent why the good doctor took such umbrage: vengeful zombies, heartsick ghouls and hunger-crazed werewolves practically leap off the pages with malevolent glee.

My favorite tale in that particular comic, however, concerns a monster of a less supernatural bent. After all, who is capable of greater horror than a man filled with jealousy and hatred?

Here’s “Revenge So Evil.” The story and art are not credited, although the piece looks to be the product of the Iger Studio.
