What's more frightening than driving through Memorial Day traffic? Reading this issue of Weird, of course! A real treat are the illustrations on the inside cover instead of advertisements.

That's right, and as the volumes progressed, stories were reprinted in later issues. While the artwork (both the original and the redrawn) is usually very good, it's the covers, with all their lurid colors and victims and monsters, that make these magazines such a treat (parents, don't look!). And like the reprinted stories, covers were even redrawn or had sections combined into a Frankenstein-like new cover for later issues, too. Wild.

For those who haven't seen these wild mags before, they were made up of 1: reprints of 50's pre-code horror tales, and/or 2: the same stories re-drawn!
