The Curse of the Phantom Brigade

Phantom BrigadeSince the Halloween season is upon us again I’ve lined up some spooky stories of the Foreign Legion that were unearthed from the dusty and cobwebbed crypts of various comic book websites.   Today we have The Curse of the Phantom Brigade from issue #008 of Startling Terror Tales (February 1954).

    It seems a bit unfair that the whole of the General’s regiment should become victims of the Moslem curse when it was only he that had ravished the Arab girl. Also illogical that the men who leave the fort at the start of the story to go to his rescue turn out to be the very men that died as a result of the curse earlier on . Nevertheless I still enjoyed the tale as well as the Bedevilled Brigade.

      I was a bit confused but figured in the end he is doomed to be tormented for eternity by those swirling ghosts. …just because he had the hots for a desert maiden. Well now, we all know it does not take much to offend the Arabs.
