EC - Staired... in Horror (Ingels)

Staired...in Horror
art by Graham Ingels, story by Al Feldstein
Vault of Horror #23[#12] (1952)


A story hosted by the Old Witch, this story features a cold widow who had killed her husband, making it look like an accident, who has now put her sights on a rich widower she met at the cemetery. Ingels does a good job of making her look sexy but really cold (as well as fitting some poses under those heavy captions).



Of course the woman pushes her luck after the wedding when she tries to get her new husband to forget his late wife. And you know in an Ingels story that when you start off with two bodies in the grave they're not going to stay there. Great rotting bodies and moody graveyards in this one.
