Number 67

The Last Look

According to the Internet site,, Bob Q. Sale was born in 1924 and died in 1962, which made him about 38 when he died. That's too young, and you have to wonder how he would have developed had his career been allowed to continue. He had a decent drawing style, although it's apparent in this story one of his panels had a partial swipe. Check out the panel on page 4 that looks a lot like the panel from Mad #7, "Smilin' Melvin" by Wally Wood.

This story, The Last Look, from Atlas Comics' Mystic #31, June 1954, has one of my favorite types of scenes from horror comics: dead guys hauling live guys into the ground! The dead guys even have mold on them. That's a good reason right there to read it.
