Lance Storm in "Claws of the Green Girl" (Ribage; 1953)

Long-time visitors to the Catacombs know that I tend to make select posts during the month of October that reflect a “Halloween” kind of vibe. I realize that sometimes those efforts can become a little blurred, but them’s the breaks, right? Lance Storm was a crime fighter and criminal psychologist who investigated a wide range of baffling cases during his heyday in the 1950s, often pitted against his personal nemesis Professor Zarno. Karswell featured this classic character several times back in 2008 over at his “The Horrors of It All” blog (see my links section), but I’m not sure if he posted this particular story, so I hope you like it as the first of this years “Catacombs Chillers”. “Claws of the Green Girl” is from Crime Mysteries #5 (Jan.1953); originally published by Ribage; minus any available creator credits. The Catacombs acknowledges "The Digital Comic Museum", as the source of this classic comic story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
