Monster of Flame!
Karswell showed the lead story from this issue of Plastic Man, #43, November 1953, called "The Evil Terror," some time ago. The whole issue has a definite horror bent, which represented the time it was published, right in the horror comics boom. But the stories aren't drawn by Plastic Man creator Jack Cole. The Grand Comics Database gives credit to Al Luster?, the question mark meaning they're not sure.
The artwork is pretty good, whoever drew it. No one else had Cole's genius and I'm sure this story would have been even wilder had he drawn it.
