WEB OF EVIL "Hangman's Horror"

If you think political campaigns these days are bad...
...let's look at how things were handled (at least in comics) back in the 1950s!
Jack Cole, best-known for creating Plastic Man and doing great spot cartoons for Playboy, wrote and illustrated this tale from Quality Comics' Web of Evil #2 (1953).
He also did the most famous story lambasted in Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent; "Murder, Morphine, and Me", which we posted HERE.
BTW, "Hangman's Horror" was redrawn for Terrors of Dracula V3N2 in 1981 using the exact same script, but the art on the re-do is vastly inferior.

Join us next week as we present another tale your grandparents didn't want your parents to see!
