Here’s a rare example of a Farrell story highlighted by artwork apparently NOT created by the Iger Shop. Man, I could’ve swore I already posted this story here at THOIA over the years, (pretty sure the rest of the issue is), but a quick search through the dusty archives proves I haven’t –though it is featured in our Complete Voodoo Volume 2 collection (IDW / Yoe Books) which is available HERE! From the Sept ’53 issue of Voodoo #11… and thanks to E. for the request!

Another tale from the Dec ’51 – Jan 1952 issue of Dark Mysteries #4 …if the evil eye glasses of our last post wasn’t ridiculous enough for ya, get ready for a witch brush. Annnnnnd with this post I’ve included the super cover as well as a related ad at the end. Hmmm, for some reason this is one of three issues from this series that hasn’t been indexed over at GCD. Well heads up to whoever does that sort of thing over there– this full issue is now posted here at THOIA in its entirety– see also “Horror in the Glass”, “The Creatures of the Mist”, and “The Dead Rise” in the archive.

Speaking of wanton witchery…

Horror in the Glass

Eye doctor Rick writes in: “I recently received a copy of your terrific Devil Tales collection and love it. For obvious reasons I thoroughly enjoyed the Satan’s Spectacles story on page 119 and was curious to know if there are more stories like this about evil glasses.” Needless to say, after looking into this somewhat blurry inquiry, Mr. Karswell managed to shed some light on the December ’51 – January 1952 issue of Dark Mysteries #4, thus bringing into focus a truly hazy crazy old gem that is indeed, just what the optometrist ordered! (Special guest appearance by Hank Hill, various panels.)

Monster in the Building

All settings on WEIRD OVERLOAD as we delve into the final tale from the oddball October-November 1954 issue of Strange Fantasy #14  …and wow, check out the GCD entry on this one, between the Eerie Pub remakes, and L. Miller Gredown reprints, Monster in the Building was revived 10 freakin’ times over the years —Farrell even dragged it out again themselves and updated it for Strange Journey #2 in ’57! Did this tale really deserve this much continued attention? Haha, Hell yes! And woo-hoo! It’s another full issue presentation here at THOIA! Hope you enjoyed it!

We were bummed to discover that the release date for the HAUNTED LOVE hardcover collection got pushed back into March, especially considering our entire ad hook was based on the idea that it would make a great gift for Valentine’s Day today! ­čÖü Well anyway, that’s the bad news… the good news is we’ll just keep rolling along with this gol’durn goofy issue of Strange Fantasy— and there’s one more tale coming up from it next to complete the entire issue here at THOIA!

From the final issue of Farrell Publication’s Strange Fantasy series, the Oct – Nov ’54 issue of Strange Fantasy #14 to be exact. This is a super weird issue of stories, (check the archive for the ultra brutal “Meet Me in the Tomb”), but there’s also a goofy ghost western, and a truly bizarre monster from another world tale– all coming up later this week! Stay tombed…

True Haunted Houses & Ghosts

Will Eisner’s Spirit Casebook #1 (paperback, 1976) contains over 20 illustrated “true” tales of the supernatural, compiled by master Eisner himself in 160 glorious black and white pages of atmospheric eeriness. Eisner’s most famous creation, The Spirit himself even takes on the role of Rod Serling Crypt Keeper Karswell, introducing each tale with background information and spooky set up / wrap ups. It’s a surprisingly chilling (even shocking at times) collection of unexplained occult events, ghostly visitations, and actual documented hauntings, and below are just 3 of my most fright-filled favorites– believe ’em or not!
