For a guy who doesn’t believe in ghosts, I sure enjoy ghost stories. (I also enjoy vampires, werewolves, walking dead...and I don’t consider them real, either.) I also love folklore, and both today’s ghost stories are versions of famous tales from folklore that I encountered when I picked up The Illustrated Story of Ghosts from the comic book rack in 1960.
“The Vanishing Hitchhiker,” illustrated by George Evans and Reed Crandall, and “Room For the Night,” drawn by Gray Morrow, are from a Classics Illustrated Special, The World Around Us. I showed “The Vanishing Hitchhiker” in the early days of this blog, and I have made new scans of it and its companion.
