Strange Tales no. 28, 1953

Strange Tales no. 28, May 1954 from pre-Marvel Atlas. The great cover by Harry Anderson alludes to the first strangest tale ever told: “Come Share My Coffin” by Pete Tumlinson. This tale has great art, great concept and solid writing, where a prisoner wants to escape from a communist prison camp.

“With Knife in Hand” by Jack Katz about a surgeon who gets tangled up with the wrong crowd for the woman he loves.

“The Coward” by Bob Forgione is a great story about how far Benny’s fear of Strangler Madsen will drive him.

“Voices” by long-time Marvel artist Don Perlin about a Ham radio operator whose hobby gets under his buddies’ skin.

“The Slums” is a great story by Tony DiPreta about a guy who goes from the gutter to the penthouse on counterfeiting to win the love of his life.
