The comic book used in the film is a 1970s reprint of an authentic U.S. comic of the period (probably the EC title Shock Suspenstories #12 with a cover date of Dec 1953/Jan 1954). The front cover and contents would have been virtually identical to the original, but the back cover of the U.S. original would have had a period advertisement rather than the single comics panel on the reprint, as shown in the movie.
