Number 367

Double Mummy Monday!

Karswell of The Horrors Of It All has been featuring Mummy Monday postings this month. Since I wish to jump into his pyramid scheme, I did an archaeological excavation at the site of Pappy's Sarcophagus of Stuff to drag out two pharaoh-to-middling mummy stories. First up, Al Camy took to the papyrus for a fine 10-pager from Forbidden Worlds #5, March-April, 1952. You may Tut-tut when you find this story so whack that the hero's girlfriend wants to tag along because she's jealous of a priestess back from the dead, fresh from her mummy wrappings! Note to hero: This girlfriend will cause you problems later. She is not very tightly wrapped herself. This is typical ACG of the 1950s, so crazy, so fun.

The second story is from Atlas Comics' Crazy #6, scanned from its reprinting in 1975's Arrgh #3.

Ha ha, man you crack me up sometimes, Papillon! Nice double post, both of us have been highlighting the mummy from one extreme to the other.

I have just written about this story in a new article abou all mad imitations for Alter Ego (out next year). This seems to be by Sol Brodsky, even though the inking of the mummie is not in his usual style.
