That dude in the last panel is totally showboating to impress that woman.

That face in the second panel looks very familiar to me, for some reason. No, no, not because I used to hang with guy…I’m just suspecting there was some photo-referencing going on.

Anyway, thank you for enjoying Charlton Comics week…sort of an unannounced Low Content Mode for the site, I realize, but I needed a brief bit of time off. Back to normal next week…I hope!

    I was absolutely sure that the page would end with a mail-away coupon to buy said ring. ‘Impress your friends! Kill Contessas!’

    “The owner of this flawless ring no longer needs it”…because my men skinned him alive and placed his exposed body inside a mound of fire ants…”You alone deserve it’s beauty.”

    What a romantic Conquistador!

    The guy in the second panel looks familiar to me as well. Is it a Vincent Price thing?

  • Shinwell Johnson says:

    He looks more like Don Ameche to me.

  • Shinwell Johnson says:

    Oh, and the man in the third panel is definitely Isaac Newton.

  • Shinwell Johnson says:

    And the man in the fourth panel could be a young Louis Pasteur. So the man in the second panel is probably also a historical figure rather than an actor.

    So when do we get Atlas/Seaboard week?

  • Nick Hill says:

    I couldn’t figure out why it was called the “Bing of Doom”

  • Sir Manley Johnson says:

    Holy cripes. They hyphenated ‘needle’ as ‘need-le’. that’s some high-level hyphenation!

  • I love how blasé Vincent Don Price Ameche is about that ladies death.

    “Ho hum, yet another dead woman. .”

    Hi Mike- love the site. I think the man might be Ernie Anderson- tv’s Ghoulardi- a horror host from the sixties.

  • Everson says:

    He looks like one of the Monty Phytons dressed up as the Spanish Inquisition.

    At least, to me…
