Triple digit temps here in the good ‘ol midwest have been so outrageous the last few weeks, I was beginning to feel as if I was trapped in a sweat-soaked, Rudy Palais 5 page story! WTF am I talking about, you ask? Read it and weep– the blood, sweat, and tears run excessively rampant in this one, folks! From the July 1952 issue of Witches Tales #12.

Mad as the Devil!

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

It’s 100 days until Halloween, and while scouring the Karswell Kollection for something appropriate to post, I stumbled upon this fun costume party devil encounter by MAD Magazine hero, Sergio Aragones, and thought, yes, sometimes it really doesn’t get better than three perfect panels by one of the funniest men in the funny books today. (And you guys know how much we adore the Devil around here already anyway too, right?) Devilish artwork on the front and back covers as well– this is a seriously hot little paperback collection of some of Sergio’s best gags from 1975.

So who’s already working on their costume for October 31st?

Haven’t posted any murderous medical mayhem in quite some time, so here’s an incredibly oddball entry that feels as drunkenly written and illustrated as the main character (seriously, how hard is it to get the borders of the pages straight??!!) From the same issue as our last screwball story post, the Oct ’52 issue of Mysterious Adventures #10, with artwork signed by someone named Doyle Cohen.

Of all the ridiculous, kookball stories I’ve posted here over the last decade of this blog’s existence, this one is sure to find a rightful place waaaay up there on top with the kookiest of ’em! Have fun with this one, fiends– Mr. Karswell’s positive that you’re gonna eat it up! From the October 1952 issue of Mysterious Adventures #10.

And thanks again to one of my bestest bloggin’ chums, Mr. Cavin for the wonderful package of books and his excellent illustration of me in the early 80’s beating the Williams arcade classic, JOUST game late one night at a Showbiz Pizza Place— the only arcade game I ever defeated! Yep, true story!

Curse of the Horrible Hangman

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

Some horror chums and I were talking about the good ‘ol Ace WoM horror series in a Facebook group earlier today, and I thought I’d pull out some issues to share, as well as deliver a swingin’ cover story from the Dec ’52 issue of Web of Mystery #16, featuring art by Charles Nicholas. And please don’t judge me by the condition of this cover, it’s as water damaged and brittle as ancient hangman’s bones as you can get– I seriously will take whatever I can find on these old 50’s books!

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

In stores this week– ugh!– HAUNTED HORROR #28 creeps into comic shops on the 28th with a toxic dose of ghastly grim tales to leave you glowing and blowing chunks! Guest issue host, Toxic Tommy, picks a few so-called “classics” from the dreariest sludge drench of all, and today THOIA has two FULL STORY previews to curdle your sour lil stomaches into submission! Pick up HH#28 for even more tales of ghosts, blood suckers, catastrophic experiments, etc! FYI: Todays tales originally appeared in Chamber of Chills #6 (March ’52), and Mysteries Weird and Strange #3 (Sept ’53.)

The Were-Tiger of Assam

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

You guys thought you were getting off pretty easy with only one were-tiger story this month, didn’t ya? Well, no such luck… and though this one is a bit lengthy, way more on the high adventure side, and a tad light on the horror, it’s still loads of fun and actually very funny at times– and Charles Sultan draws such a sexy, purring, snarling Tigra, you’ll totally forget all about that other weird ass were-tiger– guaranteed!

From the Nov. ’51 issue of Adventures into the Unknown #25.
