Vampire vs. The Strange Vampire

We've unearthed the Sept '81 issue of Terrors of Dracula Vol. 3 #2 (which turned out to be the very last issue of this short-lived Eerie Pub series), for a double header of blood sucker fun. "Vampire" was originally a precode HarveyShow More Summary

Stranger Tales

Someone tumblr'd this wonderful tribute to Atlas comic's Strange Tales, mashed with the wildly popular new Netflix original series, Stranger Things-- but it was unfortunately tumblr'd without giving an artist credit, arghh! Does anyone know who created this? Love it.

To Wake the Dead

We've seen this type of story around here before: a rich asshole schemer ignores eerie warnings and awakens the vengeful supernatural-- but Ernie Chua delivers a really petrifying panel of pissed off dead at the top of page 5 (it's somehow...Show More Summary

The Treacherous Genie

Have I ever posted a story about an evil genie here? I was asked if I had from someone looking for a particular tale, so I quickly went through my archive to check, and low and behold it's hard to believe that with over 1,900 posts I...Show More Summary


The IDW / Yoe Books horror continues this week, as we see the release of two terrors in stores on 8/17-- HAUNTED HORROR #23, as well as Mike Howlett's sssssensational new entry in the Chilling Archives of Horror Comics, SNAKES TALESShow More Summary

Horror Unlimited / Complete Voodoo Vol. 2 (NEWS)

Good friend and occasional HAUNTED HORROR story contributor, Tommy Stanziola, donated the scans for our last post (click HERE if you missed it), as well as the scans for today's post from the July-August 1954 issue of Voodoo #16. "Horror...Show More Summary

Round-Trip Ticket!

Sticking with the precode crime comic theme (see our last post too), here we have the gruesomely infamous "tongues" tale from the March 1953 issue of Lawbreakers Suspense Stories #11. Scans are provided by my awesome friend and HAUNTED...Show More Summary

Murder the Lover! / Murder the Husband!

You didn't really think we'd allow the passing of legendary comic messiah, Jack Davis, to go by without posting a story, did you? CHOKE! But instead of going the all too obvious route around here with a trip to the Crypt, the Vault,Show More Summary

The Fantastic Fan

Behind a rather misleadingly tame sounding title, lurks one of the better, and more original satanic stories from ACG's precode 50's terror output. Illustrated by Robert McCarty, "The Fantastic Fan" would certainly be worthy of inclusion...Show More Summary

The Dry Doom

I was reminded that I've posted every story from the September 1952 issue of Beware! Terror Tales #3 except for this one, also illustrated by Sheldon Moldoff (see our last post.) So we finally actually accomplished something this month...Show More Summary

Last Express!

Another wonderfully atmospheric, and lengthy horror tale from the May 1953 issue of Beware! Terror Tales #7, featuring super spooktacular art from fan fave Sheldon Moldoff. And for anyone keeping track, this wraps up another COMPLETE issue posted here at THOIA! Check the archives for Dripping Terror, The Walking Cadaver, and our previous post, The Man Who Defeated Death!

The Man Who Defeated Death!

We'll be taking a look at some freakily lengthy Fawcett Publications frights for the new few posts, our first from the May 1953 issue of Beware! Terror Tales #7. A fun bit of info: while the entire story itself was reprinted a few times...Show More Summary

The Hanged Man

I didn't mean to leave you all "hanging" at the climax of our last post, so let's pick up where we sort of left off with a Steve Ditko request that I meant to get to a few weeks ago-- here ya go, Dave-- it's a spooky little tale from the Oct '69 issue of The Many Ghosts of Doctor Graves #16. Happy 4th of July, everyone!

I Chopped Her Head Off!

If you've picked up the latest issue of HAUNTED HORROR, (#22 in stores now!) then by now you've already read the assortment of gruesome precode golden hits as chosen by special guest host Mike "The Howler" Howlett for our one of a kind...Show More Summary

HAUNTED HORROR #22 DOUBLE HEADER: Robot Woman / Chef's Delights

HAUNTED HORROR #22 finally lands in stores this week on Wednesday, July 29th, and it's the first of what will likely not be the last of many a spectacular "guest host" issues. And we are goddamned proud to present Mike "The Howler" Howlett's...Show More Summary

The Morning Ghost

One more tale from DC's supernatural 70's, this time from the October - November 1970 issue of House of Secrets #88. And like our last story, it's a bit predictable in story and climax, but still spooky and fun none the less, and the...Show More Summary

"Night of the Blood-Feast!"

Something to (blood)tide you over with as I work on a much larger post coming up next-- this is a quick and predictably fun little nazi terror tale with superbly unpredictable artwork by THOIA fave, Frank Robbins. From the March '75 issue of Weird War Tales #35. GRR-R-R-RGH-H-H-H-H...

Vein of Irony

And here we go finally with one more tale from Charlton's The Thing series, the April 1953 issue of The Thing #8 to be exact... it's a vampire story full of bloody irony, and if you think that sounds forced and cheesy then just waitShow More Summary

Whacks' Museum

I still owe you guys some promised stories from Charlton's THE THING series, but now I'm having scanner issues and it will have to be delayed yet again!! Arghhh!! All apologies, folks, they don't call this place THE HORRORS OF IT ALL...Show More Summary
