CHILLING TALES 17
"DOOMSDAY SHIP" ("MS Found In A Bottle")
Youthful was a publisher that specialized in non-superhero titles (horror, westerns, humor, romance). One of their notable titles was CAPTAIN SCIENCE, which became FANTASTIC, BEWARE, and finally, CHILLING TALES.
Many comics publishers discovered they could save a lot of money in
2nd-class mailing permits by simply changing the name of an existing
series while maintaining the numbering.
Youthful's 3rd of 3 POE adaptations appeared in CHILLING TALES #17. This was the 5th issue under that name, and contained the debut of a story that would be adapted multiple times over the coming years...
"MANUSCRIPT FOUND IN A BOTTLE".
In addition, this issue also included "The Tell-Tale Heart"--
as a 2-page text story. But, since it didn't have even a single illustration accompanying it, I'm not including it here.
As I said last time... isn't it nice to have all these collected in ONE place
on this blog?
