The Great Comic Book Detectives #5

Here’s the bit. You, the readers, send in descriptions of comics that you remember vague details from the past and either I, or one of the readers of the piece will use detective work to figure out what comic you’re talking about!

Here’s the latest one, from reader Jay…

An anthology horror/suspense/mystery comic book from sometime between 1960 and 1966 which featured a story where the main character is being given a ride in a taxi cab that he thinks is being driven by a regular cabbie (the driver is in shadows) but in a very scary panel the “hack” is revealed to be a “monkey-faced” cabbie.

I don’t think it was D.C. or Marvel. Pouring over cover galleries at Grand Comics Database have not jogged my memory. I had this comic.

There is also a story in this issue where a guy is out in the middle of some desert trying to build a skyscraper all by himself. All that is standing is the superstructure.

Any help on identifying the comic would be greatly appreciated.

Make Jay appreciate you, people! Help him out!
