Son of Dracula (PART TWO)

And now the blood suckin second half finale of the June 1975 issue of Fright #1, aka Son of Dracula #1! Click HERE for the first part in case you missed it! Hope you enjoyed this one-- I'll have another Frank Thorne illustrated terror tale coming up in our next post too!

Son of Dracula (PART ONE)

Kicking off May with the first in a cool two-part post from the one and only issue of FRIGHT from Atlas Comics-- it's Son of Dracula #1 (aka And Unto Dracula Was Born a Son), published in August 1975. It's a comic that seemed to have...Show More Summary

The Practical Joker

I'm glad I dug out these Black Magic issues because I've been looking for this story to post for a long time now. Having forgot the title, I did remember it being really funny and sort of chilling at the same time, but for some reason...Show More Summary

Evil Spirit!

Most of you know Al Eadeh from his eerie style on the many great horror titles from 1950's Atlas comics. But here he is over at Prize working his unique trademark evil (I particularly love his feline faced females) for this weird woman classic from the April 1953 issue of Black Magic Vol. 3 #5 (23.) Cover art by Jack Kirby.

The Worst of Eerie Publications (NEWS)

News you've been waiting for from IDW Publishing, OMG it's Mike Howlett's long awaited follow up to The Weird World of Eerie Publications! --THE WORST OF EERIE PUBLICATIONS!! (click HERE to pre order.) Gratuitous gore! Multi-MonsterShow More Summary

Justice for the Dead!

I recently picked up a great collection of Rip Kirby comic strips and liked the art so much I checked to see if I had anything featuring illustrations by John Prentise in my horror collection. Lucky for us, I found this nicely produced supernatural crime spooker from the June-July 1951 issue of Black Magic Vol. Show More Summary

HAUNTED HORROR #10 / Prey for the Vampire Horde

After a brief hiatus, THOIA returns with glorious news of the release of HAUNTED HORROR #10 in stores today, including a tale featured from the issue-- it's a Lou Cameron bloodsucker classic originally presented in the September 1953...Show More Summary

Tales of Satanism / The Awful Letter

Pucker up and give us a farewell smooch, as we finish out March with another deadly double feature-- it's two short tales from ACG, both delving into demonic doings; the first story from the July 1952 issue of Forbidden Worlds #7 with...Show More Summary

Paid in Full / Out of My Mind

Two stories from the Dec '51 issue of Astonishing #7, the first one possibly art credited to Harry Lazarus (looks like him to me), --and the second tale by John Romita! And how about that cool cover from the ever awesome Joe Maneely! My copy of this issue has definitely seen better days...

19th Annual HAASHOW Highlights

Taking a quick breather from the comics for a bit with a handful of horror highlight photos I snapped at the 19th annual Halloween and Haunted Attractions Show here in STL last weekend (see more highlights from the 17th annual HAASHOW...Show More Summary

The Hellfire Club (PART TWO)

Apologies for the delay with PART TWO, but here it is finally --I should know by now to never do a 22 page story the same week as HAASHOW-- (horrific highlights from the con coming up next!) But here's what you've all been waiting for,...Show More Summary

The Hellfire Club (PART ONE)

Continuing on with our look at some cool 'n creepy Charlton Comics Group horror-- today begins a two-part post from the Sept '77 issue of The Many Ghosts of Doctor Graves #61 and features some really great art from Tom Sutton. It's a superbly written tale as well, the Dr. Show More Summary

Meeting of the Damned! / The Statue!

Two stories with a humorous horror twist from Wayne Howard today, both from the August 1978 issue of Ghostly Tales #131. If Wayne's style looks familiar to you it's because his mentor Wally Wood was a huge influence on most of the fabulous work he did for Charlton Comics in the 70's--read more about Wayne HERE! More Charlton on the way too, stay tombed...

Date with Death! / Man Who Was Afraid!

The final two stories from the April 1952 issue of Astonishing #12 that I could've sworn I'd already posted here at THOIA (my records say I did, but neither are to be found in the archive?!) Sorry for the confusion. Anyway, this completes...Show More Summary

Her Lips Dripped Blood

What the heck, let's extend our Week of Werewolves for one more post with this delicious journey into fur-- errr, the Sept '53 issue of Journey into Fear #15, I mean! You can also find this great story reprinted in HAUNTED HORROR #2!...Show More Summary

The Werewolf Lurks

In our last post we saw a werewolf that stalked, now this time we got one that likes to lurk 'n leer at leggy ladies in lingerie! It's a wild bit of lycan lunacy from the May 1952 issue of Journey into Fear #7, and hmm - tra - la - la, why it looks like a werewolf took a bite out of my cover-- wah!

The Werewolf Strikes

An interesting ACG nazi (were)wolf tale from the Dec - Jan 1950 issue of Adventures into the Unknown #14, --it's a bit on the predictable side but still a lot of fun, and the oddly eerie transformation panels certainly make it worth the read. Show More Summary

Blood Moon

Post #2 in our wild 'n wooly Week of Werewolves fest, and like our last entry it's another one from DC's Weird Mystery Tales (and also written by David Michelinie), this time the Dec - Jan 1974-75 issue of Weird Mystery Tales #15. The...Show More Summary
