Weird Thrillers #4 - Joe Kubert art

Weird Thrillers v1 #4, 1951 - In 19th century France, a retired executioner longs to continue his work. He amasses a list of corrupt and greedy men within the province. Avoiding the gore of competing horror comics, Joe Kubert focuses instead on the suggestion of violence. The artwork as a whole suggests a sincere effort, but the pacing and layouts border on monotonous. The large first panel offers a worm's eye view of a guillotine, but does little to convey its lethal nature. This story was later reprinted in Amazing Ghost Stories #16. Other artists in this issue include Murphy Anderson and Gene Colan. This is number 1 of 1 Weird Thrillers issues with Kubert art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kubert or Weird Thrillers issues. See also this blog's Kubert checklist.
