"He had trespassed upon man's most sacred moment ...
He would not rest until each shuddering cry of death had been added to his collection of spine-chilling recordings! But his twisted mind failed to realize that he himself was soon to join the doomed voices in his ominous ... Album of Fear!"
Welcome again to the Comic Supplement! While I'm away on vacation for a couple of weeks we'll be serving up a couple of posts spotlighting choice 1950s terror tales.
Today's thriller is from lucky issue #13 of the DC book House of Mystery, which is cover dated April 1953, and features a fellow with a delightful audio hobby; drawn and perhaps also written by the prolific and stylish Ed Smalle. Dare you find out what sounds may lurk within the album of terror? Join us after the jump and hear for yourself!
Below: the cover of this issue, by Leonard Starr.
Be sure to join us in two weeks at this time for another terrifying goodie: "Music and Mayhem!"
