Tell a Tale of Terror Thrice SUSPENSE "If!"

For Valentine's Day, we present a little tale about a guy and a girl from different worlds...
Written by Carl Wessler, illustrated by Fred Kida, this never-reprinted tale from Atlas' Suspense #27 (1953) shows off panache and style close to the legendary EC Comics horror titles of the era.
In fact, Wessler reused the plot (with the variation of the girl and her family being ghouls) the next year in EC's Haunt of Fear #25 as "Out Cold!".
Even after the Comics Code forbade werewolves, vampires and ghouls, Wessler managed to squeeze one more version of the story through, this time making the girl and her family aliens in Atlas' World of Fantasy #2 (1956)!
You can see that version HERE!
