Weird Tales of the Inexplicable


This cover caught my eye because, at first glance, it appears to feature Golden Age Ambush Bug riding a bucking werecat through a spooky series of skull-strewn subterranean tunnels with a leggy voodoo princess riding shotgun. It is instead a priapic mantis-man riding a bucking werecat through a spooky series of skull-strewn subterranean tunnels with a leggy voodoo princess riding shotgun. Or something. I'm not sure what it is, but it's happy to see you.




"Wait...How did we sail up here?"






"Good afternoon, sir! Can I interest you in a sample from our new line of Gumbell's Rich N' Hearty soups? On sale today only, ten for five dollars with your SavrzCard. We have Hearty Home Style Chicken, Big N' Bold Beef...The beef it is. Alrighty then, here you go! Trashcan's right there, hon. Thank you, you have a great day! Good afternoon, ma'am! Can I interest you..."

That "soup sample witch" stuff just made my day... genius, man!

Also, it looks like the Giant Snow Monster is giving that fleeing couple a thumbs-up. "I SHALL DESTROY YOU ALL! Except you two guys. YOU guys are cool..."

Hi, Brian!
Just found my way here from Pappy's and am now happily following your blog.

Wow, those are three wild covers. I EERIE-ly agree, from the thumbnail, I thought that was Ambush Bug!

The Adventures into the Unknown snowman is disturbing for its distorted face. I love these three covers!

I'm eager to go through your previous posts to see what other delights await. Thanks!
