Synopsis for "Won't You Step into My Parlor...???"

Journey into Mystery Vol 1 80 001.jpg

An aircraft manufacturer attempts to eliminate a business rival with a weak heart by building a mansion with giant rooms so as to give the man a shock. When he invites the rival over to dinner he drugs the wine, and then places the unconscious man in one of the giant rooms. When he revives, he feels that he must have shrunk and the shock does indeed prove too much for his heart and he collapses. The villain takes the opportunity to gloat and the dying man lays a gypsy curse upon him. The villain goes into the next room, which should not be a giant one, but finds all the furniture immense, so realizes that he has been shrunk by the gypsy curse. He ends up devoured by his own cat which displays the eyes of his rival.
