So like I said, I'll be posting scans of comics that I feel are worth sharing and that are public domain (to my knowledge).
This first one is from Dell Comics TALES FROM THE TOMB, No. 1, 1962. A one page comic that's funny and creepy and written by John Stanley--Little Lulu writer/artist/mastermind, and unique comics stylist.
I'm taking Scott Shaw!'s word that this is written by John Stanley. Mr. Shaw! doesn't conjecture on its artist, and I sure can't guess. It's gotta be a Stanley script though. The book has many telltale Stanleyisms (breezy pacing, dialog that's never overwritten, willingness to have really big NO! word balloons, and a perverse inventiveness).
For Mr. Shaw!'s full take on this interesting bit of horror comics history, check out his article on TALES FROM THE TOMB No. 1 at his great "Oddball Comics" column. (And for that matter, read everything he's written. Mr. Shaw! knows his comics history!)
More Stanley horror to come. And in a few weeks, the Stanley comic that should be in "Best American Short Story" anthologies.
