I finally got my hands on a copy of The Valiant Book of Mystery & Magic from 1976. This 143 page hardcover from England is packed with color and black ‘n white tales of the supernatural, featuring a frightfully fun and very atmospheric mix of creepy comic strips, monster trivia, and terrifying text stories, and all very nicely illustrated too! A majority of the book is comprised of stories about “The Spellbinder”, a 400 year old sorcerer (that’s him on the front cover below) who is accidentally revived in the 70’s by his groovy modern ancestor (that’s him in the last scan reading the book– and more on those somewhat silly tales later down the road), but for now I thought I’d showcase some of the more serious stand alone horror tales contained herein, starting with a trip down to the strange old house by the churchyard…

As mentioned above, I’ll have a couple more spooky tales (plus a few monstery extras) from this collection coming up next, so just like old Wulf Saverre— stay tombed!
