This will finish off Witches Tales Vol. 4 No. 1, February 1972, and we can all be thankful. It was time to let it go.The first head on the platter is “Spirits of Doom,” with artwork from Walter Casadei. I found this one truly disturbing and am not sure about its antecedents. This one might be an original Eerie Pub. tale! Hopefully sharper, clearer, and better minds that mind can confirm or deny (My hopes were answered! See comments!). Whatever the story's origins, it really made my heart sink.
The origins of “Undertaker” are not in question: This is the classic, Eerie switch -n- swipe. In other words, a straight up reprint with a name change. This story was originally named “Ghoul for a Day” and was from Voodoo #5, January 1953.
