Comic Book Cats, number 136: Adventures into the Unknown #3, penciled by Ken Bald and inked by Pete Riss, published by ACG in February 1949.

“The Witch-Cat of Salem” is a fearsome feline summoned when the evil witch Black Naomi is burned at the stake. Described as “a beast of ever-living hate,” over the next 300 years the Witch-Cat haunts Naomi’s old house, menacing all those in search of a really sweet real estate deal. Finally, in the present day, Bob and Ann renovate the old house, only to find themselves the latest prey of the hellish kitty cat.

Ken Bald’s career in comic books began in 1941. In addition to ACG, he worked for Timely and Fawcett. Later in his career Bald drew several newspaper comic strips, including the long-running Dr. Kildare and the short-lived but well-regarded Dark Shadows daily strip. Bald passed away in March 2019 at the age of 98.
