The Cry of Satan (1952)



Beware The Cry of Satan! A horrid, heart-stopping sound, heard by those whose lives are soon to end! When well-meaning Edgar forges a plot to bring his sister Delfina's foul witchery to an end, he brings upon himself a terrible curse that bestows tragedy upon his family. For even with his evil sister out of the way, poor Edgar still finds himself unable to escape that deadly harbinger... The Cry of Satan!

Let the gruesome tale below, filled with witchcraft and shape-shifting beasts, serve as a reminder not to mess with a cat lady -- or her hair!!! Inked by Moe Marcus, this hair-rowing tale, from Tomb of Terror #3 (a bona fide classic, dating back to August, 1952), was contributed by Karswell, the Master of Pre-Code Horror Comics, and kind benefactor of Killer Kittens From Beyond The Grave.

Frog Queen: I'm sure I've got this bad boy's great, great, great grandson living with me! I'll have to hunt down a good pic of him, and maybe clip it to this post...

Karswell: MEOWL!!!!

Grim stuff, but I love the drawing of Delfina in panel two on page three.
