This one has a Disbrow/L.B. Cole cover, a 25-page adaptation of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and a 3 page back-up story by Wally Wood. This book holds a rather unique place in the pre-code world, as it is the first issue for five different series. Love Confessions, Horrors, Terrifying Tales, Terrors of the Jungle, and, of course, Startling Terror Tales. Startling Terror Tales changed numbering halfway through, going from #10-14 (1st series), then changing to #4-11 (2nd series)resulting in two different issues from the same title #'d 10 & 11. This is the first #10, I will be scanning the second one tomorrow or the next day...

Wally Wood art or Woodesque art? My guess is Harry Harrison -- later author of sf such as _Bill the Galactic Hero_ & Stainless Steel Rat. Bob

Actually, it's listed as Harrison/Wood art, so I'm guessing it's Harrison layouts and Wood finishes...

Actually, based on the date, I'd say this was produced while he was ghosting for Will Eisner on the Spirit. I've seen some of the same style in Jerry Granedetti and others.
