Shelf of Skulls
The title sounds like it's describing Karswell's office, doesn't it? This story, reprinted from Ajax-Farrell's Voodoo #1, is by Matt Baker. I scanned it from the black and white incarnation in the 1969 Terror Tales Volume 1 #8 (actually #2 in that weird way Eerie Publications numbered their magazines).
It's got Baker artwork, with some added ink shading and spurting blood (by editor Carl Burgos, maybe?) It's also got horror elements: the shrunken heads, a cheating wife, vengeful husband and a cigarette smoking skull. That's good enough for me!
Go back to Pappy's last Wednesday to see more Baker artwork on his great Canteen Kate feature from Fightin' Marines.
