THRILLER "Haunted Honeymoon"

Long before Michael Jackson, Thriller was a spooky anthology TV series (and comic)...
...hosted by (and occasionally starring) horror movie legend Boris Karloff.
Illustrated by long-time artist Tom Gill (who specialized in Westerns), this tale from Gold Key's Thriller #1 (1962) is a light-hearted romp told with gentle whimsey.
Interestingly, the couple are shown in a queen-size bed at a time when movies and tv shows had their married couples in double beds!
BTW, the weird "color bar" effect between the panels was an experiment Gold Key did for several months, eventually discarding it when they received complaints the gimmick was too distracting.
Be here next Wednesday for more Halloween-season fun!
Next week:
We haven't decided yet what it'll be, but we can guarantee that...
You'll Cry Your Eyes Out if You Miss It!
(Oh, you've heard that, eh?)
And now a word from out sponsor...
