One of my favorites.  Apparently there's some controversy as to the cover artist, but it looks like Shelly Moldoff to me.  He did several TMIH covers and the fisherman has that Moldoff look about him.

Great cover.  I have this one and number 8 with the woman in the ship cabin being menaced by a corpse flying through the porthole.  Some insane covers in the series, but of course many issues are quite pricey.

Mister Mystery is a great title.

 No way could a publisher get away with this today . . . Read all the text. Be suspicious of the shape of the rocks, even.

These guys were pushing the envelope and laughing the whole way

Yup, they absolutely knew what they were doing. Read some anecdotes from the creators of the time like Feldstein and they laugh about all of the double entendres they got away with.

This is a cool one! The little added extras make it! The title "The Dead That Rise" on the book along with SS Mystery as the name of the ship. (thumbsu

Yes, the details are great!  I'd read that Baily pencilled and Mortellaro inked the cover, but then again, the female looks a lot like a Maurice Whitman girl (Ghost comics).

SWEET!  The #30 is a reused / edited Disbrow swipe, but they are both super cool.  And both really nice condition!  That STT #9 almost never is seen looking sharp, but you got a nice one!  The colors are great on both.  I'm a Cole completeast, but I still want... er... NEED a #30.  Congrats!

Most benign torture cover ever.  I think he's handing him a pen?
