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

Down to Death!

The final post from the Nov '52 issue of Chamber of Chills #14 is also the cover story, though the hairy creature on the cover wearing lipstick, and the green alien in the actual tale inside couldn't possibly be any different. And mixing...Show More Summary

The Devil's Necklace!

We're sticking with the November 1952 issue of Chamber of Chills #14 for a few more posts cuz it's full of icky insanity and frightening fun, and this one from visual freak-out master, Rudy Palais is no exception! Oh, speaking of The Devil, I'll have some very unholy news for all of you in the coming weeks-- hang on to your horny pitchforks!


Another terrific tale from the Nov. '52 issue of Chamber of Chills #14 --see our last post for another one-- featuring Vic Donahue art (his eerie undead remind me of Joe Maneely's a bit), plus a spooky story with tons of atmosphere. Maybe we'll take a look at this entire issue, cuz OMG it's all pretty freakin' insane...

The Spider Man!

In our last post we saw the Bat Man, so it's only natural that in our perfectly friendly neighborhood follow-up post we pay some lavish lovin' to that other fearless fighter of crime, that wall-crawlin', web-slinging', champion of justi-- oh wait, nope, different Spider Man. Show More Summary

The Creature from the Green Lagoon

From one kind of killer bat story, to yet another! Yeah, what the hell, it's San Diego Comic Con weekend so why not post a superhero story that fits THOIA in theme? We did it before HERE with Sub-Mariner, and again HERE with PlasticShow More Summary

The Vampire Swoops

THE HORRORS OF IT ALL swoops back into epic action with a blood sucker yarn from the October-November 1950 issue of Adventures into the Unknown #13, art by Leonard Starr, who sadly passed away last week on June 30th at the age of 89. RIP
