Gargoyle Every Night

Creepshow fan "Tony" found his way to THOIA via a google search for the comic book adaptations of the film that I've posted in the past (check the archives) --this in turn has created a new fan of Berni Wrightson as well, and Tony asked to see more of Berni's fantastic work. Show More Summary

Evil Intruder

Since announcing our new HAUNTED LOVE mini-series debuting this Feb 2016 (IDW / Yoe Books), I've been swamped with emails from HAUNTED HORROR and WEIRD LOVE fans from all over. The biggest concern seems to be coming from the horror fans...Show More Summary


By now I'm sure everyone has seen the silly/fake "Starring on LOVE BOAT" photoshop hilarity floating around Facebook and wherever else you boils and ghouls haunt the web. I thought I'd join in the fun with my own monster mash-up featuring...Show More Summary

In the Coils of the Python Queen

THOIA returns after taking a rather forced holiday breather, plus a plethora of sexy side projects put our ever lovin' blog on the back burner for a week or so, not to mention the myriad of technical difficulties, and well... oh Hell, let's just get on with the story, shall we? How about a slithery Jim McLaughlin chiller from the Nov. Show More Summary

The Crate

With Halloween right around the corner, I see a ton of "essential holiday horror movies" lists apparently compiled by people with a very narrow sense of The Horror Film. Yes yes, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Exorcist, Psycho, Halloween etc., all incredible classics, ok? We get it. Show More Summary

It's seems that the Haunted Horror Vol. 3 hardback "Pre-Code Comics So Good, They're Scary" (collecting issues 7-9) has jumped the gun and found it's way into a few stores already despite the November 5th release date ???!!!

R.I.P. Jay Scott Pike

Sad news from the Marvel Masters bullpen, as apparently Jay Scott Pike has passed away. In honor of his frighteningly fine artistic contributions to 50's Atlas horror, THOIA has an encore presentation of one of his creepier classics from the December 1954 issue of Mystery Tales #24. RIP

The Monsters Strike!

Cave men apparently existed in the days of the dragonsaurs in this monstrously fun tale from the July 1952 issue of Adventures into the Unknown! #33, art credited to Charlie Sultan who did a ton of top notch artwork for ACG... post rounded out with a good 'n ghostly "true" one-page filler too! Boo!
