Strange Terrors #4 - Joe Kubert art

Strange Terrors v1 #4, 1952 - Joe Kubert does his second story for this title, one of many horror titles that were pervasive during the early 1950s. The strange and compelling cover by William Elgren is almost too sophisticated, and resembles the ancient wall paintings in Rome. Kubert's story about a murdered fortune teller is effectively gruesome, yet tame compared to other horror comics of the era. His loose, spontaneous strokes nicely fit the genre. This is number 2 of 4 Strange Terrors issues with Kubert art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert or Strange Terrors issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist.
