Check this out!    The Death Wheel!  Everything written on the Halloween Card.  The symbols all have 4 stars around them.


And note at the bottom....."Lady Doom"...."You are doomed".

I was really excited to come across it! You can view the entire comic here if you sign up: http://comicbookplus.com/?dlid=21570 There are some other interesting things in there.

I came across it looking for the Red Ryder cattle brand mentioned in ZU. A poster @ ZodiacKillerSite had brought it up and i was hoping to find more photos: http://zodiackillersite.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1266

Very impressive Tahoe!

Zodiac could have actually read this as an impressionable teenager when it was first published in 1952.

The way that the cartoonist's initials FWB are drawn is very, very similar to the symbol under the words "Happy Halloween" on the greeting card. The F and the B are slanted away from each other like the L and the F (or whatever they are) on the card. That is very interesting. Thank you.
