Number 2033: Jack Cole at Midnight
Because he was created by Cole, during Cole’s time on the strip he did what he could do very well, and that was to infuse humor as well as excitement into each panel. Midnight might have been based on another character, but there was really no one who was like Jack Cole.
Midnight had a support group, which included Doc Wackey and Gabby, a talking monkey.
From Smash Comics #29 (1941):
I love Haunted Love!
I was so delighted after reading Haunted Love, I put this self-produced plug for the book on the Haunted Horrors Facebook page.
I think what Steve “Karswell” Banes has done is terrific, finding horror stories with love subplots. Anyone who follows Karswell’s blog, The Horrors of It All will recognize the special care with which Steve has picked the stories. Every one of them is a gem, and if any gems can be found in the pestilential, putrid swamp of pre-Code horror comics, Steve will find them.
So, highly recommended. As with all of the books in Yoebooks’ series, The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics!™, the book is made for permanence in any fan’s library. Haunted Love is available through all of the regular sources.
