Flipping the bird
You never want to scoff at an old Indian legend. No sirree. Otherwise you'll end up like this hunter who went against the strong advice of an old Indian. "Wings Of Death" is likely inspired by "The Birds," a novelette by Daphne DuMaurier published in 1952 in her collection The Apple Tree, and later made famous by Alfred Hitchcock in his movie version.
The story is signed by Frank Giacoia. A commenter on this posting gave the opinion that the pencil artwork was done by Mike Sekowsky. The story is from St. John's Amazing Ghost Stories #15, 1954, reprinted from Weird Thrillers #5 (1952).
