Comment: None of these stories have very strong endings, they are mostly just build ups. Death Tattoo has a few nice touches, but one story-- House To Let, except the final panel or two, was a rich, suspenseful, even intriguing, horror story, about the possibility of bringing ANYthing to life, anything at all --"a pencil, a chair, ... even a stone". Despite the ending, this would be a good story to anthologize.
