Journey Into Mystery No. 1 (1952)

One Foot in the Grave

Aug 5, 2019

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée just barely tolerate 1952's Journey Into Mystery no. 1! It's another low-effort anthology of horror tales that prove kids in the 50s were embarrassingly easy to scare. An unsuccessful florist pays hobos to steal flowers from graves for him! A dumbass farmer opts for a voodoo curse instead of admitting he's just not very good at agriculture! A mediocre author resorts to murder instead of taking a writing class or something! Basically, the lesson in all these stories is that if you're bad at your job just keep your head down and try not to draw attention to yourself, otherwise a bunch of ghosts will destroy you in the most ironic way possible. Also, find out which states are still hanging people in 2019... and then avoid them. What the hell were you gonna do in Delaware, anyway?
