This is a horror story that isn't really like a horror story. It's from Beyond #4 (1951), an Ace comic. It's a ghost story; it has some revenge in it, but not like we're used to, especially if like me, you have a daily diet of Karswell's The Horrors Of It All.
The ending of "Trial By Ghost Light" seems open to sequels. The ambitious DA turned governor's punishment after death is to right wrongs! That's so bad?
