Despite it’s name, Dime Mystery Magazine is really more akin to the early pre-code horror pulps than crime/mystery mags like Black Mask, typically it’s regarded as part of the Weird Menace sub-genre alongside titles like Sinister Stories & Terror Tales, in fact, in many ways it’s a real precursor to horror comics like Tales From The Crypt.

Dime Mystery Magazine October, 1948.

Sadly, Dime Mystery did not include artist information after the first few years on publication, so the artists here are unknown. Some nice stuff though.
