The Demon Is a Hag!

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

Wednesdays are usually dedicated to werewolves around here, but this week we’re conjuring up some witchcraft instead– so welcome all, gather ’round the midnight fire for a rather bitchy, Witchy Wednesday instead! Now some of you might remember this precode Rudy Palais tale I posted back in April (CLICK HERE!), and so today we present the Eerie Pub remake from the May 1973 issue of Witches’ Tales Vol. 5 #3, featuring all new art by Ezra Jackson. If you compare the two, you can clearly see the original is about 666 times more horrifically gruesome in nearly every panel (even the new story retitle is a bit meh.) But not all is lost, and it’s still a perfectly fine little update… it’s just gonna be a no win situation however hard you try to re-do that putrifyin’ Palais perfection.

The Horror of Hillory Hill

I thought I had already posted this Lou Cameron tale here at THOIA, (it gets harder and harder to keep track of these things!), but we simply put it in the Lou Cameron’s Unsleeping Dead Chilling hardcover collection (still available HERE!) Despite a few wonderfully goofball moments with the script, Lou’s sense of cinematic angles, detail, and eerie atmosphere really send this one over the top– and that climax is a doozy! From the July 1954 issue of Baffling Mysteries #21.

Share My Coffin

Time for yet another tale where someone thinks hiding inside a coffin to break outta jail ever works! No spoiler there, fiends, you know it as well as I! A repeated theme doesn’t make it any less fun, and hey, we also have Rudy Palais on art duty as well, so expect lotsa sweat drops, bizarre angles, and gaping, gory bullet holes too! From the September 1951 issue of Witches Tales #5, –plus a weird, quickie one-pager!

Perfect Hideout! / Preview of Death

by on Dec.02, 2019, under Syndicated from the Web

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

The Ziff-Davis Winter 1951 one-shot, Eerie Adventures #1 has some frightfully fun stuff in it. Most notably this 5-page tale of mad science miscalculation and murder which we also featured in Haunted Horror #18 back in 2015. Realizing that I’ve never posted anything from this issue here at THOIA over the years though, I thought we’d give this one another looksie, and even round it out with a one page quickie (from the same Eerie issue), with a spooky story that borrows just a wee bit from E. F. Benson’s classic, The Bus Conductor. “Just room for one inside, sir…”

Adventure of the Gangster Who Was Killed Twice

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

If you didn’t gather around the table with friends and family on Thanksgiving this year, you now have your chance to do it with a bunch of mugs ‘n thugs and downright unpleasant psychos instead. Yes, THOIA is ringing the whodunit dinner bell with a super-sized helping of 30’s / 40’s style murder mystery madness– and it’s also the long-awaited return of amateur sleuths, Bert and Sue, to this blog (see another adventure HERE!) that I promised everyone way back in March 2018. If this one doesn’t keep you guessing all the way to the end– you’re already dead! From the February 1947 issue of Super-Mystery Comics Volume 6 #4, with story art and cool cover by “R. Grey”, who might just actually be Warren Kremer.

The Garcon / The Silly Sorceress

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

It’s a day early, but we’re still serving up this horrifically silly, holiday Double “Eature” for Thanksgiving 2019 anyway, and boy oh boy, it definitely doesn’t get much more so than these two doofy dishes! First up, an encore presentation of the totally insane, The Garcon, (which originally appeared here at THOIA way back in 2008), and from the March 1954 issue of Weird Mysteries #9. It racked up over a dozen comments back in the day and I thought it time to reheat it once more for those of you that might have missed it– or even for those of you that require seconds! Followed by a cute lil turkey huntin’, pilgrim in pretty peril, tale of the stupernatural, from the Winter 1954 – ’55 issue of Phantom Lady #5. Happy holiday everyone, and as always– remember to eat irresponsibly!

Food For Thought!

If the tainted canned meat of our last post hasn’t left a horrific taste in your mouths, I’m positive that today’s self serving of even fresher, rarer meat will surely do the trick! Or it’ll make you just as sick, either way– bon appetit, fiends! From the Winter 1952 – ’53 issue of Dark Mysteries #10.

And thanks to Jon Appetit for the scans!
