Revenge of the Teddy Bear!
Ghost Manor #50 (Charlton Comics)
Various (w) & (a)
When I saw this cover going through the back issue boxes in my local comic shop I just had to have it. The use of such a benign object as a teddy bear for horror purposes was so appealing.
The story entitled Terrible Teddy follows a criminal who is in shock from having run over a young boy whilst making his getaway. Despite his remorse, the story is not over. A very loyal and vengeful Teddy Bear is after him.
This short story published in 1980 will entertainer and amuse. For all their obvious faults the now sadly departed Charlton Comics did publish some gems in their time.
This is one .
Pick up a copy if you see one!
