Anticipating Halloween next week, we have a spooky story. The moody and melodramatic tale of a malevolent medium in the aftermath of murdering his mark has a gimmick: a couple of meanings, besides the most obvious, for the term “dead man.” Huh. I was not familiar with either of these descriptive phrases before, so who says you can’t learn something from comic books? King Ward signed this story in the splash panel with a fancy “K”. It is from Forbidden Worlds #2 (1951).
