The Vampire Fog

Reposted from THE HORRORS OF IT ALL | Go to Original Post

Earlier this month marked the 40th anniversary release of one of my all time favorite John Carpenter films, The Fog (1980.) I’m sure I don’t need to recap the movie here as it’s quite the supernatural classic, so instead enjoy this similarly themed tale of foggy fright on the high seas of horror, from the June 1952 debut issue of St. Johns Weird Horrors #1.

Vampire Bride

Time to really nail this month long theme right where it counts– with a blood lusting vampire bride on the loose tale, from the May 1952 issue of Web of Mystery #9. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone, hope it’s filled with plenty of X’s and O’s! And chocolaty coffins and creme-filled crypts too!

++++++++++++++++++++++

Also, the special Vampira issue of PLAYGHOUL is now available. Limited to 666 copies, and presenting a chronological collection of Maila Nurmi magazine appearances (as herself and as Vampira) from 1950 to 1964, plus comics and more. If you’re like me, you’ve probably already seen about 95% of the content, (and for the hefty price tag, some of the scans are aggravatingly low quality), but for Vampira collectors it’s certainly a worthy addition to your horror book shelf. CLICK HERE for more info and to order your batty old self a creepy copy today.

Weird Creepy Awful Spooky Ghastly Comics

We’ve been chuggin’ along pretty intensely here so far this month for THOIA’s Valentine Massacre 2020, so let’s idle it back a notch for just a bit, and take a sniff of something different. Yes, love is in the air– can you smell it? And love is magical– black magical! Carl Hubbard uncorks his own magic potion of illustrative talent, and delivers some wonderfully silly scenarios in this weird creepy awful spooky ghastly comic tale from the downright daffy Dec. ’53 issue of Whack #2.

The Fiend Who Lived Forever

It’s Fiendish Friday, and here’s a spooky kooky one from the August 1954 issue of Web of Evil #17 –some of you might remember this one reprinted in Haunted Horror #15 as well! Louis Ravielli’s art is always richly, (and uniquely) detailed, and literally drips with misty, mouldering atmosphere. I always feel like he probably used old movie star photos for reference, as occasionally the posing and faces seem very familiar. It’s a fun, fast paced shocker, though it might have benefited with another page to really flesh out the carnage a bit, especially during the crime spree montage.

And yes, there is a doomed love story in there as well, haha…

Rebirth!

Okay, enough with the hairy scaries for a while, how about something more slimy and formless? Maybe a tale of extreme cuckoldism + blobs from the deep (courtesy of the January 1953 issue of Beware #13) adds up to something weird and different? You’ll soon find out, as we sink deeper and deeper into our Valentines Massacre 2020 love affair of freakish frights ‘n delights this month…

Love from a Gorgon

by on Feb.03, 2020, under Syndicated from the Web

Reposted from THE HORRORS OF IT ALL | Go to Original Post

From one hairy monstrosity tale of lurid love, and right into another– and this time it’s a surprisingly well written Star Publications tale of truly despicable, driveling oral organs from the beyond! Yeah, you read that right, *gag!* –and you’ll read all about it again in a few moments. Also note, Disbrow is using the word “gorgon” here as merely a means to accentuate how ugly this creature is, as there is no actual snake-headed, turner to stone in this story. From the Dec. ’52 issue of Startling Terror Tales #13, with another super cool, blacklight poster inspiring cover design by L.B. Cole.

The Gorilla

Reposted from THE HORRORS OF IT ALL | Go to Original Post

Time to get swingin’ on THOIA’s Valentines Massacre 2020 this year– yes sir, it’s an entire month devoted to love gone wonderfully whack-oh, and weirdly wrong! And one of the most non-subtle, fright-filled moments of *CENSORED* to leap outta the fifties funny pages comes from the July 1954 issue of Weird Chills #1. Good lord, you barely even need to read the lines (or between ’em) to know what’s going on in this white man, fever dream, freak-out. And my, how times have certainly not changed… not even a little bit.

SING: “You drive me ape, you big gorilla…”
