Holiday Reading Room ADVENTURES INTO WEIRD WORLDS "House of Horror"

While today's haunted house tale was the cover feature...
...the art, by the amazing Bill Everett, didn't quite get it right...as you shall see!
Why Everett did a demon/werewolf on the cover instead of the Jim Mooney-rendered skeleton shown is unknown!
When this story from Atlas' Adventures into Weird Worlds #6 (1952) was reprinted as the cover featured tale in Marvel's Dead of Night #1 (1973)...
...artist John Romita Sr got the skeleton right!
Thanks to revisions in the comics Code, the tale was reprinted almost verbatim!
But for some reason, the title was altered...
Nobody knows why...

Reading Room DRACULA VS ZORRO "When Titans Clash!"

...on a short voyage from Spain to France, Don Diego de la Vega and Count Vlad Dracula court the same lovely female fellow passenger.
When she abruptly rejects Diego's attentions (which she enjoyed and encouraged earlier), the playboy decides to play "guardian angel"...
To Be Continued...Next Friday!
By the way, here's how the cover for #1 actually appeared on the comic racks!
A matte-black cover with glossy-black embossed artwork and red/white highlights!
It looks really kool to the naked eye, but, as with most "enhanced" covers, it doesn't photograph well (much like vampires?)!

Holiday Reading Room TORCHY "Haunted House Date"

We end this week's Haunted House-fest with one of the most popular...
..and politically-incorrect female characters of the Golden Age!
Torchy Todd wasn't quite a stereotypical blonde bombshell!
She did have a brain, and could extracate herself from most situations!
But her main attribute was how often she could end up in "cheesecake" poses, usually showing off her legs!
Created by noted good-girl writer/artist Bill Ward, Torchy had a long career during the Golden Age as a back-up strip in Quality's Modern Comics, Doll Man Quarterly, and her own 10-issue title!
Eventually, Ward moved away from the strip and others (including Gill Fox, who wrote and illustrated this never-reprinted tale from Modern Comics #98 [1950]) tried to fill his high-heeled shoes!
