Love from a Plant

THOIA follower, Otto, emailed me looking for some answers to a comic cover he remembered seeing at a grocery store over half a century ago, and I believe this Ross Andru / Mike Esposito pair-up from Mystery Tales #16 (1964) fits the bill. Now if you clicked the GCD link in the previous sentence, you undoubtably noticed that the story itself actually originated in the Sept ’52 issue of Tales of Horror #2, that’s because Mystery Tales #16 is simply a complete reprint of that entire issue, just with brand spankin’ new cover art. This story also found its way into Haunted Horror #4 in 2013.

The Old and the New!

I very rarely, if ever, upload post-code ACG stories to this blog because… well… typically they’re not that great. But today’s story from the November 1957 issue of Forbidden Worlds #60, is actually a bit spooky at times thanks to Ogden Whitney’s chilling winter touches, plus some nice writing that propels this somewhat predictable premonition story along in the same fun manner as an old Twilight Zone or Tales of Tomorrow tv episode. And the added bonus– a New Years Eve setting!

Here’s hoping that everyone has a wonderful evening, stay safe, and we’ll see you all on the other side, as we kick off the new Roaring 20’s with lots, lots more!

Happy New Year!

The Sewer Keeper / The Some-Thing

If the stress of the holidays have left you frightfully frazzled and eerily exhausted, then maybe what you need right now is to kick back with a good lurid laugh– yes, a GET LOST double feature might be just what the horror host ordered! First up, from the April – May 1954 issue of Get Lost #2 is a hilariously gruesome satire of precode horror comics (EC to be exact) guaranteed to satisfy your atrocious little appetites– followed by a chillingly hysterical parody of John W. Campbell / Howard HawksTHE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD, from the June – July 1954 issue of Get Lost #3. Not to get too serious, but I’m a bit surprised at myself for having never posted either of these kookball classics here at THOIA over the years until now. Enjoy!

Most of you that have been following this blog for the last decade or so know fellow commenter, Brian Barnes, aka The King of Snark, and Youtube mastermind (is that the right word?) behind Your Final Answer and Mondopiece Theatre, where, for quite a few years now he’s played horror host to some of the best bad cinema in Z-grade film history. Well, let us now add a writer credit to his resume with his strangely unique entry into holiday themed short horror comic kookery and bookery! He’s not the actual host this time around (whew!) but he does take the old reading of the will trope and weave a frightfully fun tale of ultra gory, tannenbaum terror! Nice art by deadly Dan Fowler as well. And for more Barnes ballyhoo, be sure to CLICK HERE –if you dare!

And because one story is just not enough for xmas evil, head over to my other blog for a spooky children’s picto-story created by me, errrr, Mr. Karswell, earlier this year!
