JACK KAMEN visits The Ghost Gallery (1948)

Before taking his talents to EC, Jack Kamen did a lot of stuff for Fiction House and the Iger Shop. Many issues of Jumbo Comics feature him on three different series. One of those series was The Ghost Gallery, and this entry, from Jumbo #114 in Aug 1948, is one of the coolest. Five years later the tale was later chopped to five pages and rerun in Ghost Comics #6 as "Payoff Blues." Thanks to DIGDiD for uploading it to Comic Book Plus (.com).
