Tales of the Mystery Master: "The Mystery of the Eccentric Collector" (Croydon; 1946)

As promised here is the second (and final) appearance of the Mystery Master from Variety Comics #3 (1946); which is also the last issue of this short golden age series originally published by Croydon. Like our horror hosts previous outing, “The Mystery of the Eccentric Collector” is surprisingly tame for what seemingly is meant as a thriller, but at least the work by illustrator Leo Bachle isn’t shabby. The Catacombs gratefully acknowledges "The Digital Comic Museum", as the source of this classic comic story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belongs to the original publisher and/or creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!

A nice example of Leo Bachle work in colour, thanks. His Johnny Canuck and other strips in the Canadian golden age books were primarily black & white.

Can't imagine why a kook like the collector would have to live alone!
