Mansion of Evil by Joseph Millard

Today I’d like to share a very obscure publication that may well be the very first “graphic novel“. Many give that title to Matt Baker and Arnold Drake’s “It Rhymes With Lust“, but “Mansion of Evil” came out the same year: 1950. It’s anyone’s guess which book was actually available for purchase first. It’s interesting to note that the artist for “Mansion of Evil” is not credited, does anyone have an idea who drew it?

The book is full color, and almost 200 pages long. It tells the tale of a young woman who falls under the thrall of sadistic aristocrats, and her many attempts to escape their imprisionment. Below are scans of the front & back cover, first page, and indicia detail. If you want to comment, use the link below; registration is not required.
