Robert Bloch (1944)
This publicity article, from the 21 November 1944 MilwaukeeJournal, shows much of the humor that Bloch brought to horror. He is missed. The article, which can be read in its entirety (click here), speaks of his recent creation: Lefty Feep, the Goon from Ragoon, a wildly popular franchise. Bloch at the time was doing speech writing to make a creative living. He also stated that watching The Phantom of the Opera stunned him into writing horror.
