WEB OF EVIL "Vengeful Curse"

Curses on those who open tombs are as old as mankind itself...
...but what about those who put a fresh body into an ancient burial site?
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 #5 (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, "Vengeful Curse" has been reprinted twice, first in Quality's one-shot Intrigue in 1955, then in IDW's Haunted Horror #1 this month.
It was redrawn for Horror Tales V5N4 in 1973 using the exact same script, but the art on the re-do by Hector Castellon is vastly inferior.
And, to add insult to injury, it was uncreatively re-titled "Bloody Demon".

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