Hearts & Horror MENACE "Fake"

Remember the old adage "Don't judge a book by it's cover"?
 Here's the codicil; "It goes both ways"!
Illustrated by Al Eadeh, this tale from Atlas' Menace #10 (1954) follows the classic trope of golddigger tripped up, not by her own greed, but by the fact her husband (who still loves her) is not even human!
Remember, the target audience for horror (as opposed to romance) comics was 8-14 year old boys, to whom girls were "yukky".
They were also the audience for whom Lois Lane , the nosy reporter who was always trying to either expose Superman's secret identity or trick the Man of Steel into marrying her, was the typical woman!
