Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Journey Into Fear was Canada's first horror-themed comic book. Published by Superior Publishers, Journey Into Fear last only 21 issues between 1951 and 1954. One of the issues was cited by Frederick Wertham in his "Seduction of the Innocent" and the series was probably discontinued due to the implementation of the Comics Code Authority in late 1954.

"Ghost Bride" was the first comic in Journey Into Fear #4 (Nov. 1951) and it's not very fear-inducing. It's about a woman who has a very specific medical condition and her husband who showers her with jewelry so she doesn't die. H a p p y   H a l l o w e e n !

Oh, Wilberforce, most of the scariest things on this planet hide right in plain sight in broad daylight. Good night.
