CRAIG, JOHNNY / BILL GAINES - VAULT OF HORROR #28 Illo & text "The Defiler" 1952
Synopsis: Trader Trask, an unscrupulous trader on Africa's west coast, used whiskey to cheat the natives out of their valuable ivory, gold, timber and raw rubber. His ship was full of this cargo after his "dealings" with the natives and was preparing to sail off when he saw a tempting silver pendant hanging around the neck of an Arab. He was able to see a strange writing on its reverse and wanted to buy it....but the Arab refused. The next day, Trask walked into the Arab's tent, grabbed the pendant, slit open a pig and shoved the pendant inside....defiling the object. He then pulled it out and threw the pig at the merchant and left. The next morning, Trask was found in bed....his stomach ripped open and the pig stuck into his belly.....while the Arab once more proudly wore the pendant.....able to do so because of what was written on the back of the pendant: it said that only a swine would defile this object....so to cast away sacrilege, it could be annointed with a larger swine's bile: that of Trader Trask!
