Beautiful Night for Murder!

It's been quite a while since I've posted a Dick Ayers story, so todays tale is a very welcome addition to the THOIA Archive! And since everyone seemed to relish in the murderously mean-spirited nature of our last post, we have another...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

Haunted Horror... Love?!

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 ???!!! I haven't seen any anywhere yet, but reports are coming in. Show More Summary

Trick or Treat from HAUNTED HORROR!

The super scary Halloween issue of HAUNTED HORROR #19 is in stores now --all stories were specially hand picked by me--errr--- Mr. Karswell himself fyi-- and it's ready to fill your month of All Hallow's cheer with page after page of...Show More Summary

Portrait of Death

AIEEEE!!! It's another perplexing Palais story for you today --and WTF, I totally thought I had posted this tale before, but it turns out there was just another story with the same title! So yeah, Rudy really delivers the grotesque monstrosity in this one... Show More Summary

The Clock Struck-- Doom!

It's come to my attention that I've posted everything from the July 1952 issue of Black Cat Mystery #37 except for this doomed 'n sweaty Rudy Palais tale-- so here ya go! I also added the one page bonus at the end in case that's been overlooked here somehow over the years as well. Show More Summary

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!

Time to Die

HAUNTED HORROR #18 finally landed in stores this week-- two weeks later, but better late than never! And today it's time foe another preview of a spooky story contained in that issue, (making its debut here at THOIA as well), and originally presented in the February 1954 issue of Dark Mysteries #16. Show More Summary

Vampire Spider

Creeping around within the pages of the Dec '53 issue of Adventures into the Unknown #50 are some really good stories. Lin Streeter's beautifully spooky "I Am a Zombie!" was posted HERE a while back, as well as being the story chosen...Show More Summary

Terror Island!

While digging through my nerd-boxes of doom (aka: researching for yet another upcoming horror project), I stumbled upon this fun and fast paced, "Island of Dr. Moreau" revision from the August 1953 issue of Forbidden Worlds #20. Nice art from Charles Nicholas, and a great cover illustration from Ken Bald... Show More Summary


FINALLY! 666 years in the making / conjuring, and it's now time to unleash news of The Beast! It's my latest, possibly greatest, (definitely hottest!) book yet... coming this December from IDW / Yoe Books -- it's DEVIL TALES!! More info...Show More Summary

HAUNTED HORROR #18 / Murder Mansion

We initially had a release date of August 26th for HAUNTED HORROR #18, but over at the Previews New Release site we've noticed that it's unfortunately not listed --so cross your fingers (and don't forget to invert them too) for nextShow More Summary

COMPLETE VOODOO VOL. 1 / Gallow's Curse

Coming in October 2015, (and just in time for Halloween too!), Howlin' Mike Howlett returns to IDW / Yoe Books in a terrifying tag team-up with Uncle Craig for the first in an ongoing series of sickening full-run, pre-code horror collections!...Show More Summary

They Couldn't Die! aka: There's Peril in Perfection!

One silly story with two terrific titles, first presented in the September 1952 issue of Voodoo #3, and then later re-printed, re-titled, and slightly re-colored for the January 1954 issue of Voodoo #13. I've included both title panels from the splash pages for comparison. More BIG news about the original VOODOO series coming soon from IDW / Yoe Books too-- stayed tombed!!

And the Blood Ran Green

One more scary sci-fi story for you guys, and also from the cool 'n creepy, and somewhat overlooked 70's Spacestream series by Whitman. And like our last tale, we find yet another eerie alien infection turning a routine exploration mission...Show More Summary

Who Goes There?

Everyone's driving me crazy with their endless babble about the unbearable weather this summer. I guess we should all be glad we're not in Iran right now, where apparently it got up to a record breaking 165 degrees today! At least you could cook a kebab right ON the street. Show More Summary
