Poe 1953, Pt. 5

(Continued from Poe 1953, Pt. 4)

CHILLING TALES  17
"DOOMSDAY SHIP"   ("MS Found In A Bottle")
     w/ Gallery of Illustrations

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?
