STORY DETAILS

Title: The Corpse in the Crematorium

Characters: Al Gregory (an artist); Jane Walton (Al's fiance)

Synopsis: A man subject to cataleptic fits is brought to a crematorium while his wife-to-be searches frantically for him. She fails to find him before he is scheduled for cremation, but what saves him is that the attendant notices beads of sweat forming on his brow before the gaping maw of the blast furnace.

Pages: 7.000

Script: Johnny Craig; Al Feldstein ?

Pencils: Johnny Craig (signed)

Inks: Johnny Craig (signed)

Letters: Jim Wroten

Reprints: Crime SuspenStories (EC, 1950 series) #2 (December 1950-January 1951)

Notes: Colorist credit by Craig Delich. Story foreshadows a 1955 Alfred Hitchcock Presents TV episode titled "Breakdown", wherein Joseph Cotton plays a paralyzed man lying on a morgue slab mistaken for a dead body (episode directed by Hitchcock). Thommy Burns, in Fantagraphics' October 2019 volume, "The Woman Who Loved Life and Other Stories", reports that the script is by Craig, not Feldstein. Placed a ? by Feldstein's name and Craig's name added.
