Love this cover, don't have it yet, but it's always seemed a winner to me!

I agree.  Slightly tamer than a lot of PCH, but I like the skeleton coming out of the water.

Slightly tamer maybe...but what’s great about some of these Precode Atlas books are the details that pop out after you drink in the cover. Vampire wings on the skeleton, the head peeking out of the coffin, stabbing, Devil and drowning on the side panels! All in a cool flooded graveyard setting. Great book! (thumbsuMarvelTales110.jpg

Don’t get me wrong, I love the cover!  I agree with everything you’ve said.

Wow that's nasty. The guy taking it on the chin reminds me of Steve Buscemi in Fargo. "You should see the other guy!"

Picked this one up at and antique shop today. I wish it was the OTHER Science Comics, but I thought this one was pretty cool. It’s the 1946 series, and only a lonely 3.5 on the census. So, this would be top of census if I submit. My issue is the right edge. Miscut or trimmed? The pages look right, but the dimensions seem small on this one. Comics.org seems to be down so not sure.

Well, comics.org resolved that time. Not sure why I couldn’t get it earlier. It says the dimensions are standard golden age. This one is smaller. Anyone have one from this series that can confirm or refute the dimension info?

Witches Tales 16 looks to be the same witch. Some people just can't catch a break! :roflmao:

That's a lovely, bright copy! I believe the Witch also makes an appearance on the cover of BCM #38 as well.  You're absolutely right, she really can't catch a break at all.

Yeah, the BCM 38 & 39 covers almost tell a story! (thumbsu
