THOIA is proud to kick off the new month with one of the most horrifying precode tales ever told! Originally presented in the October 1953 issue of Weird Mysteries #7, it’s only 4 pages long, but the Trapani / Finocchiaro art team-up really packs a nerve wranglin’ wallop! So hang on tight, and read it all the way to the very end– don’t be a baby– just keep repeating to yourself, “it’s only a story… it’s only a story…”

April Fool’s Day! (Those of you that purchase our Chilling Archives of Horror Comics hardcover editions might remember we presented this story as a bonus in our Haunted Horror: Pre-Code Comics So Scary, They’re Good! Volume 3 collection. The original art scans come from the personal collection of one of our favorite HH contributors, deadly Dave O’Dell.)

The Hangman’s Son

Time for a shivery supernatural tale, guaranteed to choke you up a bit, from the December 1951 issue of Captain Science #7. Vince Napoli’s oddly shoddy artwork actually works to the story’s advantage this time around, providing a surreal air of nightmarish weirdness, and propelling those bent-necked spectres into a whole other realm of blood-curdling spookery. Have yourselves a super swingin’ Sunday, fiends!

The Gentlemen of the Jury!

I was asked again recently to help identify another isolated comic book panel that’s been making its out of context way ’round the www, and you’ve probably seen it around too– a tough talkin’ dame putting a book store owner in his place while trying to buy a tome on black magic– so when people come to me for help (in this case I was actually tagged on facebook), I am of course more than happy to assist. And here it is, the satanically penned Stan Lee script, and Russ Heath illustrated gangster tale (with a supernatural twist) that the perplexing panel in question is from, as originally featured in the April 1953 issue of Adventures into Weird Worlds #17.

Arms of Doom / Kiss of Doom!

Tentacled Tuesday (it rhymes with doomsday!) is here with a double header dose of wiggly, squiggly doom! One from Rudy Palais, and one from Joe Certa— both from Harvey’s Black Cat series! Our first story from the Dec ’51 issue of Black Cat #32 almost looks comical at times with those big Mad eyeballs, but Palais, as always, handles the creepies nicely.

And hey, while we’re talkin’ tentacles, if you need a really good monster movie, I highly recommend checking out GRABBERS! (2012.) Funny and scary– just like today’s posts!

And now for today’s sexy, sushi scented sequel, from the February 1953 issue of Black Cat #42.
