Don't Be A Stumbling Spook-Dark Shadows-1957

Here's another mystery one. No idea whatsoever as to the identity of the author or artist but this fun, MAD-style ghost story appeared in the second of three issues of something called DARK SHADOWS (no relation to the later cult TV series) from something called Steinway Comics (as America's Best Comics). The rest of the book was emasculated code-approved terror tales but this one flirts dangerously with monsters, naked women and other things the code did nit allow.

  1. This story first appeared as "How to be a Gracious Ghost!" in the June 1957 issue of Ajax's Strange #2 ...it was also later reprinted in Strange Mysteries #10.
