Number 2121: Poor humanfly
Wildey went on in his career to create Jonny Quest for Hanna-Barbera. But he had his apprenticeship doing comic book stories, as quoted in the Wikipedia page for Wildey, for “every publisher but EC, ‘the good one.’” His technique on this story is inspired by the look of EC.
As for the story, some soldiers and a scientist go into the unexplored part of the Amazon jungle for a secret project. As a horror story it uses the EC template of rough justice: a person does something awful, and a doom equivalent to his deed kills him.
Enjoy your Halloween!
