The Zombie's Doom

Here's another one from the August 1952 issue of Forbidden Worlds #8, (see our last post too), art this time by Harry Lazarus who we have featured here at THOIA many many times over the years. And yeah, if anyone is curious, it was indeed a zombie that took a giant bite out of my cover,--thus forever sealing this issue's DOOM! More from this crazy issue in our next post too!

The Fangs of the Fiend

Here's a weirdly illustrated ACG tale from the August 1952 issue of Forbidden Worlds #8. I say "weirdly" because sometimes Art's art here is awesome, and sometimes it's unusually less than so... but it's at least always fun and generates an interesting atmosphere of shadows and swirling mists and leering faces everywhere on the walls and vases.

Grave on the Green

We're at the halfway point of the February 1952 issue of Black Cat Mystery #33 (check the last two posts or more), and in case I forgot to mention it, I think I always start off the new year with a full issue. Right? I think so. Anyway,...Show More Summary

Army of Scorpions!

Man Made Monster

Shattering the Time Barrier

Some really interesting art and super panels highlight this ghostly shocker from the June 1953 issue of The Hand of Fate #23. Anyone got a clue who the artist is? Even the cool Ace Horror site seems to be stymied. This issue also contains...Show More Summary

Phony Face! / Skin Deep

We haven't had a Double (Be)Header around here in a while, in fact, let's call this one a "Face-Off!" shall we? We pit DC's House of Mystery against their own House of Secrets in a no holds barred match of tales sharing a similar theme. Show More Summary

The Tattooed Heart!

I guess it's been a while since we delved into the horrors of wartime atrocities, and of course any tale concerning nazi concentration camps is bound to be extra horrific. But fret not, this journey down a very dark chapter of world history actually has a light at the end of it, as you will soon see. Show More Summary
