Horror House Ad - September 1963

This ad was passed along to me some time ago from John at Monster Magazine World, who also passed along this info...

"It's from Cracked Magazine No. 31, Sept. 1963. I was taking a guess at the artist who drew the ad being John Severin, who was a sort of "house artist" for Sylvester P. Smythe & Co. Then I spotted the "JS" initials at the bottom right of the "Horror House" title header. Looks to me like the Frankenstein mask could be Topstone, but I'm far from being an expert in that field. Based on the list of other available masks next to it makes it a fair guess."

Thanks again John for the scan!
