Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery

 BKTM   (Gold Key, 1963-1980)

©1974 The Estate of Boris Karloff
Series continued from Boris Karloff Thriller #2

Like many of the best of the Gold Key comics, this title featured suspenseful stories with clever twists that thwart the bad guys. In one such tale, thieves are hypnotized by a swamp monster that cons them into giving it their entire take and eventually lures them into its quicksand home. In another story, members of two feuding families set aside their animosity towards each other to fight a monster together…with unexpected results.

If you enjoy other Gold Key classics like the Twilight Zone or DC’s Unexpected, you’ll appreciate Boris Karloff’s Tales of Mystery.
