Let's face it. 2018 has been a very scary year. Between natural disasters and unnatural politics, between school shootings and economic uncertainties, between Thanos and Mariah Carey...it's been a year to a year to have me shaking in my boots. What to do?
I say if you have a theme going, stick with it!
So let's close 2018 with a few scary stories from the premiere issue of Black Magic, a title published by Prize Comics for 50 issue from 1950 to 1961.
Black Magic was an exceptionally cool title for two reasons. First, it was packaged by the legendary team of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Second, (well not cool, but certainly odd) Prize comics continued the numbering after Black Magic was cancelled with #50; issues #51-53 were given to the short-lived Cool Cat. In 1973, DC brought back the title for a nine-issue reprint of Simon-Kirby stories.
Brace yourself with tales about an evil doll, a dead hitchhiker, a family tradition of death, the horrors of the afterlife, the evil that lies within a mirror, and the unseen terror that follows you.
And may 2019 be better than 2018!
