Comment: Excellent article on this book & the artists in it: http://kirbymuseum.org/blogs/simonandkirby/archives/4319 I don't know if there is an issue #2, but I hope so! With the comics code in place it's amazing this book was published at all.

Comment: Taken from the crinkled raw scan so needs re-scanning ideally. I prefer the papery look but the edit isn't particularly harsh. Exactly the same applies to Eerie Tales. Shame they failed after ONE issue when there were hundreds of samey issues those b/w Mad imitations. Eye-catching covers so I can only assume that even five years on from the peak of the hysteria distributors and/or sellers wouldn't touch them (even though their kiddies could go to the cinema to watch horror films unlike in the U.K).

Notes: The host who introduces most of the stories in this magazine is a character named Morgue'n, who also appeared in Eerie Tales (Hastings Associates, 1959 series) #1 (November 1959), where he calls himself "your Morgue Keeper." The contents of Eerie Tales #1 may be from the planned, but never released, second issue of Weird Mysteries. Harry Mendryk postulates that Joe Simon may have edited this title: http://kirbymuseum.org/blogs/simonandkirby/archives/4319 The art credits for unsigned stories were reviewed for Alter Ego by Michael T. Gilbert, Hames Ware, Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr., and Dr. Michael J. Vassallo and corrected or added here with permission.
