THE THING "Cinderella"

With Once Upon a Time and Grimm presenting "dark" versions of fairy tales on TV...
...let's see how comics handled similar material back in the 1950s, the heyday of horror comics!
(Illustrated by Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko, no less!)
The Thing was the snarky, but unseen, host of the comic series in the vein (as it were) of EC's Crypt Keeper.
He was no relation to either the movie character The Thing from Another World (whose film came out in 1951, just before the comic debuted), or the Fantastic Four's super-strong team member.
Join us next week as we present another tale your grandparents didn't want your parents to see!
