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!

Demon’s Doom

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!

A long task is done…

… I have now tagged all– well, nearly all– posts with labels pertaining to common tropes or motifs that are in them. Some defied neat categorization but can still be located by searches or by looking through author and comic title tags.

There may be modifications over time– new tags added, perhaps, or other ones split into subcategories– but I think I shall take a well-earned rest. Feedback will be appreciated.

HAUNTED HORROR #26 / The Gossips!

by on Jan.27, 2017, under Syndicated from the Web

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

HAUNTED HORROR #26 will be in stores on February 1st, and here’s a FULL STORY PREVIEW of the nauseating tale that kicks off said issue! To decap–errrr– recap: this is the second in a series of three “HORRORS OF IT ALL SPECIALS”, each story chosen by me, so you know that guarantees it to be stamped with the highest retched gag rating possible! There’s another great new illustration of Mr. Karswell as well by Happy Undertaker mastermind, Drazen Kozjan too! A serious, bonifide, DON’T MISS collection of creepers and jeepers for sure! But back to today’s post, this is a disturbingly infamous Mortellaro story originally featured in the September 1953 issue of Mister Mystery #13 –it’s been featured here at THOIA a few times as well over the years, (remember the archive?) I’ll have another sample story for you in our next post too, so stay tombed!

The Case of the Curses / From the Ocean Bottom

We’ve spent most of the month looking at scary 70’s Skywald classics, and yes, I promised we’d finally make our way back to the fright-filled 50’s– and we are! But first, a quick stop into the early 60’s. And note: this is merely a temporary detour because I was recently discussing post-code ACG “horror” with Nequam and thought, what the heck, how about an example of how a really good series like Forbidden Worlds seriously got the business from the contemptible comics code, i.e.: water it way down, remove all traces of swords (!!!) etc., –yet still manage to be “too gay” (???), –though ya know what– also, actually strive (or struggle) to preserve OK art and remain entertaining in a doofy Ripley’s Believe it or Screw It kind of way. The second two-page quickie tale feels a bit more at home here, so enjoy ’em or hate ’em, we’ll be back in a few with more of the good stuff! From the August 1961 issue of a Forbidden Worlds #97.
