2020 claims another precode legend, all-time THOIA favorite, Joltin’ Joe Sinnott has passed away at the age of 93. Boy, what a wild collection of awesome he leaves behind for future generations of comic book fans. His multitude of styles and vast array of talent for any genre continues to give everyone a little bit of something to marvel at (literally), and today at THOIA we will be marveling at just that. And maybe this story isn’t the most appropriately titled tale to choose for an R.I.P. post, but it still showcases what Joe absolutely did best within the horror genre: incredible splash, terrifying monsters, superbly rendered faces / backgrounds, and supernatural inking! R.I.P Joe— we miss ya already! From the April 1952 issue of Adventures into Terror #9.

The Death of Me

Gliding effortlessly on the wings of Death, and back to the 1950’s with an astonishingly dark tale from the February 1954 issue of Astonishing #30. Okay, so how many of you actually feel sorry for these decrepit old miserly millionaires and their good for nothing heirs? The even older saying, “You can’t take it with you,” seems terrifically trapped in limbo on this one.

A Model Murder / The Collector!

Two things I love most in life: building monster model kits, and collecting comic books– and awesomely enough there are two shivery stories on both subjects fondly found lurking in the frightening July 1979 issue of House of Mystery #270. If that isn’t enough, this post also contains two more favorite things of mine: the Creature from the Black Lagoon– and bikinis!

Mr. Karswell Awarded the Silver Bolo!

Did anyone catch the final episode of the second season of The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs? Holy cow, I was as shocked as anyone to discover the Silver Bolo awarded to me, Mr. Karswell, and The Horrors of it All! What a mind-blowing honor to be recognized, and even mentioned by legendary joltin’ Joe –as well as by ever dynamite, Darcy the Mail Girl! The Shudder Channel even tweeted about lil ‘ol me!

And yeah, it seems like my last name will always be eternally misspelled and mispronounced (it’s BANES, not BARNES), but no matter– I’m still over the moon about it.

As soon as Shudder makes the episode available I will add the link here. Thanks again to Joe, Darcy, Shudder, and everyone involved with The Last Drive-In, as well as to whoever it was that nominated me in the first place –I guess that’s how this thing works– I’m still not exactly sure how it all happened, or how I even appeared on the Briggs radar, but I’m glad I did!

How to Spot a Witch!

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

Just to mix things up a little, here’s a handful of superstitious silliness from the annals of “true” human history, aka: Phantom Stranger #3, 4, and 5 to be exact, with everything illustrated by marvelous mad man, Mort Drucker. I’ve always liked these single / half page filler bits in old horror comics, even if they’re nothing but a complete load of tommyrot…
