Bride of Satan (1974)

Q: How many witches does it take to outsmart the Devil's minion?
A: Just one! Mothers, lock up your evil sons!

When Raymond agrees to eternal service to Satan in exchange for enough money to win the love of a beautiful woman, he enters into a diabolical contract which can never be broken... or so he thinks! When the object of his affection learns of the unholy contract, she sets into motion a plan steeped in deception in order to save her lover from hellfire. Will she become the Bride of Satan?

Thanks to Karswell for sharing this fiendish fable from Witching Hour No. 49, printed in December 1974. The Horrors of it All will be posting a similar story tonight, as Devilcember begins drawing to a close...

Terror of the Cat-Men (1952)

"Help us! We are not cats!"

When American army buddies Sandy Lake and Steve Hannan travel to argentina to make their fortunes, they both fall head over heels for the beautiful Senorita Del Faro. Known to the natives as The Cat Woman, the striking seductress is suspected of witchcraft. According to the frightened townspeople, those who dared to seek out her hacienda atop Mount Homono had a nasty habit of vanishing without a trace! Behold: the Terror of the Cat-Men!

This feline frightener comes Dark Mysteries No. 5, and was kindly donated by the generous Karswell of The Horrors of it All. As noted in the final panel, there's nothing like a little propaganda to keep the masses in line!
