The Vampire-Tarpe Mills-1940

Justly hailed as a pioneering female comic book artist, here's Tarpe Mills showing how creepy horror comics could get more than a decade before EC's glory days.

Interesting art, there doesn't seem to be a reason while some panels have background and others don't, but it's good for 40s comic art. One thing that always brings out early comics is the usually garish background colors which change from panel to panel! It's not exactly a dark story with half the panels being florescent yellow!
