Princess of the Subway

A. C. Hollingsworth had not one, but two stories featured in the Oct / Nov 1952 issue of Eerie #9 (see our previous post if you missed it somehow), and yes, it's another bit of artistically uneven fun, but this time spiced-up with a little more sexiness-- and a whole lot more weirdness!

The Phantom Hitch-Hiker

The art is a little bit flimsy at times, but this is a fun one with some nice visual attempts from A.C. Hollingsworth, and originally appeared in the Oct / Nov 1952 issue of Eerie #9. Everett Raymond Kinstler's black and white art for the intro / preface on the other hand is as spectacular as always.

The Haunts of Devil's Lake

Kicking off 2018 with a jolting Jim McLaughlin tale of terror, from the April 1952 issue of Web of Mystery #8, concerning a beautiful indian princess and her tribe of living dead-- that live under a lake! Really nice art, and the story...Show More Summary

Vampire Terror / Corpse, Come Back!

Time again for another deadly December Double Feature, and this time we have two forms of freaky foul living dead! I meant to post these kookball classics on xmas because of all the hilarious ho-ho-ho'ing going on in them both, and to...Show More Summary

The Lost City / Tough Guy

Woke up with the first snow of the year on the ground today-- yup, it's definitely winter now-- ugh! Anyway, with that in mind, how about a couple of chillers from the April 1953 issue of Journey into Unknown Worlds #17, starting off with a spooky Sheldon Moldoff trip to The Lost City. Show More Summary


HAUNTED HORROR #31 is in stores TODAY, and it's full of hairy 'n scary 'n scaly terrors, plus a couple of oddly titled classics that have been featured here at THOIA in the past, (but you know you love revisiting the most revolting of...Show More Summary

Magazines of the Mummy

Mummy madness (and Double Post December) continues, with a trip into the realm of b/w magazine mummy tales-- one deadly serious, and one not even remotely close to being so! First up, from the August 1973 issue of Eerie #50, Steve Skeates...Show More Summary

Priestess of Baal / Sinister Return

We're still screaming for our mommies with the release of my new book this week, MUMMIES, (IDW / Yoe Books) available everywhere NOW, or order a couple online HERE (and FYI: I have a few extras to spare as well if anyone wants to order...Show More Summary


IDW unraveled a new release date for my MUMMIES book, and it's this week-- December 6th in fact! Available in finer shops everywhere this Wednesday, and of course online too (HERE!), this book is a little different in format than the...Show More Summary

Dugan and the Dummy / If I Breathe... I Die!

We're picking up where we left off last month with two more tales from the May 1953 issue of Journey into Unknown Worlds #18. And since it's that giving time of the year, I thought I'd do something around here that I haven't done inShow More Summary

The Broth Needs Some Body!

Another tasty Thanksgiving leftover straight from the fridge of fright-- just heat with the fires of Hell and serve! It's a fun little dish of toil and trouble from the May 1953 issue of Journey into Unknown Worlds #18, with Tony DiPreta story art and a super Russ Heath cover! burp!

What Kind of Ghoul Am I?

After a few months of grueling horrors (and a grueling holiday yesterday), I thought maybe we'd kick back and dip into some lighter spook-fare before jumping back into the gruesome gruel. So if a ride with a va-va-va-voom girl rock group...Show More Summary

The Witching Well

Like Rudy Palais, I also get a lot of requests for Lou Cameron stories, and here's a supernaturally charged selection from the June 1952 issue of The Beyond #12. Has everyone pre-ordered Lou Cameron's Unsleeping Dead collection coming out in Spring 2018? Click HERE for more info!

Death Pact

I've been a bit leery about posting Harvey horror stuff anymore since the release of those complete collections, but seriously a week won't go by without someone writing in and asking me to post something by Rudy Palais. So here we go, gettin' some sweat drippin' Death rollin' for November finally... from the August 1952 issue of Tomb of Teror #3.(Cover art by Al Avison)

I... Want... My... Cupcake?!"

Those of you that have been following this blog from the beginning are, by now, fully aware of my undying love and restless obsession with the Stephen King film classic, Creepshow (1981) directed by George Romero. Having watched this...Show More Summary

He Waits in the Dark

In just a few more hours, I too will be waiting in the dark to spring out on the unsuspecting trick 'r treaters in my neighborhood (pictures of my creepy costume in our next post!) In the meantime, let's check in on someone else whoShow More Summary

Shweck's Bad Boy / The Night Caller

Getting back to the spellbinding spookery of 50's Atlas era horror with a deadly double header as we draw ever nearer to Halloween! Our first tale is from the June 1954 issue of Spellbound #23, it's a Chuck Winter classic with some really great moments-- followed by an eerie Bill Walton weirdie, from the April 1954 issue of Spellbound #21.

HAUNTED HORROR #30 / Den of Horror

It's hard to believe that HAUNTED HORROR has reached the big #30, and what better way to celebrate than with a hellish new issue just about a week before Halloween to get everyone in the morbid mood! Friend and HH cohort, Tommy "El Diablo" Stanziola stepped up to guest host (the third in our temporary series) and with the hideous help of Mr. Show More Summary

Room of Shadows

An attractively eerie Atlas pair-up of Mike Sekowsky and most likely Mike Peppe, from the July 1952 issue of Spellbound #5. Things might remain a bit spellbinding for the next few issues, stay tombed...

He Walks Through Walls

A fun lil tale illustrated by John Forte wraps up another full issue presentation here at THOIA, that being the Oct '54 issue of Marvel Tales #127-- check the last few posts for info and links about the other four stories already in the archive.
