Number 722

Enter the nightmare

Entering a painting, or a mirror, or a television set, is practically a sub-genre of fantasy fiction. It's given a pretty horrifying turn in this tale from 1954's Journey Into Fear #19. "Doorway to Death" was done by the Jerry Iger studio for the Canadian publisher, Superior. Most of the stories they turned out are somewhat bent, but in interesting directions. Sier DeFerrac, the artist in the story, has skeletons in his closet. Literally.

The Rooster Vulture Man! These Journey into Fear tales are so wonderfully over the top sometimes, and the Iger art looks alot more slick here than usual. A real nice post Pappy, I have a JiF story lined up at THOIA for Thursday myself.
