"Well, here we are, back again for another shivaree of shenanigans and quivers! For this is a doleful dirge for longhairs! It's the story of a concert fiddler who was real gone for that fine tone, and nobody dug him 'till he went all out and dug for himself."
From 'Fate Plays the Violin'
"Strange, eerie noises from out of the unknown ... A quavering song from nowhere ... Yes, there's more than musty legend behind the secret of Cragside Hall! There's the ghost of something stronger than death ... And it waits to join 'The Spectral Singer!' "
From today's first tale: The Spectral Singer'
Greetings music lovers, here we are again with music-related comic book madness; which today consists of two 1950s-era horror tales, the first one sweetly romantic (really-?), and the second one out-and-out horrific and sick. Something about violins brings out the weirder story ideas from these comic book scribes, and this story is a prime example.
So join us after the jump for these two tasty, trippy tidbits of terror!
I like how Auntie is reading 'Grisly Ghost Stories' at the end. Charming gal.
Next up-the real star of our show today, as penned by an unknown writer, and illustrated by Gerard Altman, with a cover by George Woodbridge. From Premiere Comics 'Mysterious Stories' #3, December 1954.
