"Wrath of Ra-Amun" (St. John;1953)

Turner Classic Movies has been running classic Hammer Studios Films on Friday's this month as part of their Halloween festival and last week they had a marathon of all four classic Hammer Horror "Mummy" films. Here's a pretty cool tale from Strange Terrors #6 (Jan.1953), originally published by St. John, that seems cut from the same cloth.

"Wrath of Ra-Amun", with fine art by Lou Cameron, casts the traditional mummy in a slightly different light. Much of the action is set in the ancient past, but there is a two-panel ending that leaps into the present.
