"They seek him here, they seek him there..."

Fast Fiction, a.k.a. Stories by Famous Authors Illustrated, was a short-lived comic book series from Seaboard Publishing -- six issues from October 1949 to March 1950 -- that mimicked the Classic Illustrated line.  As near as I can figure out, the six issues were reissued as Stories by Famous Authors Illustrated in March 1950, followed by other titles through at least issue #13 in March 1951.

Novels covered throughout the run were The Scarlet Pimpernel, Captain Blood, She, The 39 Steps, Beau Geste, Macbeth, The Window (a film tie-in of a story by Cornell Woolrich), Hamlet, Nicholas Nickleby, Romeo and Juliet, Ben Hur, La Svengali (George du Maurier's Trilby), and Scaramouche.

"...Those Frenchies seek him everywhere."

But you don't have to look everywhere, neither in Heaven or Hell, because he's right here at the link below.
