"Eye of the Beholder", "The Immortality Thieves!" and "The Royal Right"

I hope my long absence didn't frighten anyone too much. Trying to balance five blogs can sometimes be hair raising but not nearly as hair raising as the tales I have for you this evening.

Tonight the Crypt will be bring you three tales from DC Comic's October 1972 issue of Forbidden Tales of Dark Mansion.

With script by Robert Kanigher and art by Howard Chayking, first up, we have Eye of the Beholder a romantic tale of love at first sight.

Don't believe in it you say? Don't worry, you will.

I've always have a soft spot for tales of true love.

Next up, artist Win Mortimer helps teaches us that looks can't bring you lasting joy, but revenge can.

Lastly, with art by Bill Draut, plot by Joe Orlando and script by Robert Kanigher, we have The Royal Right. A story that helps remind us that it never pay to be an asshole.

Wow, that got ugly real quick!
