The Mummy Walks

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

I had another 70’s DC horror story all lined up for you today, but Brian Barnes “isn’t a fan of 70’s DC horror” so I’ll save it for later and post it here on his birthday instead. In the meantime, let’s camp it up a few notches with some funny, rampaging mummy action straight from Riverdale that you jaded horror heads might actually find surprisingly entertaining (yep, still in mummies mode around here) –from the December 1976 issue of Little Archie #113, –the special “All Halloween Issue” to be exact. And if you enjoy today’s post, check my other blog later this week as I’ll post another story from this issue over there too, along with a few other halloween left-overs. (FYI: 284 days until Halloween!)

Bride of the Pharaoh

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

I unwittingly stumbled upon a theme when I started scanning this tale from the March – April 1977 issue of The House of Mystery #251. Thinking it was just another similarly themed story to help further promote my new MUMMIES book (available everywhere NOW— and HERE too!), lo and behold as it turns out, in relation to our last post– this rebel rouser of a yarn is also about a princess! And to make things even more fun, let’s resurrect another theme we used to utilize around this blog a lot back in the day by giving it the ‘ol CASTING CALL routine. I mean, seriously, when I look at blonde haired Amelia Dole in this story, I can’t even begin to imagine anyone else but Diana Dors playing the role– but what say about Farook?! Give us a good actor, old or new for the part… maybe the best answer will win something from the Karswell Kollection too! Let’s hear whatchooz got!

(NOTE: This story is NOT in my new MUMMIES book.)

The Haunts of Devil’s Lake

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

Kicking off 2018 with a jolting Jim McLaughlin tale of terror, from the April 1952 issue of Web of Mystery #8, concerning a beautiful indian princess and her tribe of living dead– that live under a lake! Really nice art, and the story is fast paced and fun, but is it really as wild as it sounds? See for yourself, as we load up the fishin’ gear ‘n fear and head deep into the Canadian wilderness for 6.66 pages of underwater weirdness! (Cover art by Lou Cameron)

Vampire Terror / Corpse, Come Back!

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

Time again for another deadly December Double Feature, and this time we have two forms of freaky foul living dead! I meant to post these kookball classics on xmas because of all the hilarious ho-ho-ho’ing going on in them both, and to be totally honest, I’m surprise neither of these weirdies have wound up posted here already over the years as the other two tales (of 4) in the July 1954 issue of Mysteries Weird and Strange #8 have been in the THOIA Archive for over a decade (Happily Dead), and the other one coming pretty darn close to 10 (Devil’s Birthmark.) So check ’em all out if you haven’t already, that’s what the archive is for– it’s another FULL ISSUE now filed away forever in Mr. Karswell’s Krypt.

The Lost City / Tough Guy

Woke up with the first snow of the year on the ground today– yup, it’s definitely winter now– ugh! Anyway, with that in mind, how about a couple of chillers from the April 1953 issue of Journey into Unknown Worlds #17, starting off with a spooky Sheldon Moldoff trip to The Lost City. And if that story (plus the icy awesome Bill Everett cover) prove a bit too frightfully frigid for you, then let’s turn the heat way up and venture way down into the lost paradise– it’s our second sinful feature, highlighted by some super satanic illustrations from the always underrated John Rosenberger.

Hope everyone has a great holiday– we’ll be back next week with at least a few more double features before the koo-koo clock strikes doo-doom on 2017. Stay too-toombed!

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

HAUNTED HORROR #31 is in stores TODAY, and it’s full of hairy ‘n scary ‘n scaly terrors, plus a couple of oddly titled classics that have been featured here at THOIA in the past, (but you know you love revisiting the most revolting of ’em again anyway!) –and we have both featured here today as part of our Double December xmas posts, aka an encore presentation for you long time, lifelong regulars. So pick up the current issue NOW for all of the other deadly details and deceaseries, and decompositions, and downright death riddled… derrrrrrr… sorry, I ran out of kooky Karswell korn.

Magazines of the Mummy

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

Mummy madness (and Double Post December) continues, with a trip into the realm of b/w magazine mummy tales– one deadly serious, and one not even remotely close to being so! First up, from the August 1973 issue of Eerie #50, Steve Skeates and Jaime Brocal team-up for a super sinister stalker of a story, followed by a kooktacular cornball classic from Quasimodo’s Monster Magazine #8, from 1976 –and thanks again to Drazen Kozjan for the images from this one too! And don’t forget, my new MUMMIES book is on sale NOW and available everywhere finer (and not so finer) books are sold!
