In the Bag! (x2)

THOIA fills your treat bag a few days early this Halloween with a double load of gruesome goodies, and once again it's two Atlas tales that share the same baggy name! First up, a heady little Jim Mooney classic from the July 1952 issue of Spellbound #5, followed by Doug Wildey's wicked take on John Collier's excellent horror short story "De Mortuis" from the April 1954 issue of Adventures into Weird Worlds #28.






 Speaking of Atlas, Marvel just announced another volume from their pre-code Marvel Masterworks series: Atlas Era Strange Tales Vol. 4 hardcover, collecting Strange Tales issues #31-39, coming March 2011!

The moral of both tales is that it just doesn't pay to be nosy!

Good picks there! Always glad to see a bundle (no pun intended) of Atlas stories!

very grim, very good art in both, especially the first "Bag".

Two pretty unpredictable endings today. One because of a great twist, and the other because there was, like, no kind of twist at all. Didn't see either coming. I liked In the Bag best, I think. But the other one was just about as good.

Thanks for the awesome (my) birthday twofer, Karswell.
