Random Reads: "The Doomsday Trapeze" by Fleisher and Green

Just a quickie, today, Groove-ophiles! A short-and-sweet terror tale written by Michael Fleisher and drawn by Dan Green. From Forbidden Tales of Dark Mansion #14 (September 1973), prepare yourself for..."The Doomsday Trapeze"!


  1. This was a lot grislier than the usual DC mystery fare. Should've ended with "Good Lord! *Choke*!"

  2. A fun revenge tale, the last couple panels are a good play on light and shadow, it almost looks like a different artist did them. Contains the fun comic/movie trope that certain parts of the human skeleton would stay together as a complete set once removed and cleaned.
