The Haunters from Beyond

"The Haunters from Beyond" from The Phantom Stranger vol.1 #1 (DC, 1952) by Jack Schiff and Win Mortimer
The Phantom Stranger's first series isn't the one Aparo worked on in the 70s, though that's the best known and beloved, it was 6-issue run from the 50s in which the Phantom Stranger was more of a normal guy tangling with supernatural happenings and sometimes debunking them (in a sense, he was both the modern Stranger AND his back-up Dr. Thirteen). Some of those strips were reprinted in the 70s series with a modern framing tale. So the best was yet to come.
