The Little Black Box / Black Crows!

What October would be complete without an Atlas tale– or two! Yes, THOIA is back in black with a couple of truly dark, mortifyingly mysterious terror tales! And jolting Joe Maneely lights it all up with a super hot little number from the March 1952, debut issue of Mystery Tales #1, –it’s guaranteed to give you heart burn! Followed by a scary story from the January 1954 issue of Mystery Tales #17 about an 80’s rock band from Georgia that released 8 studio albums and– just joking– it’s the long awaited return of astounding Al Luster to this blog! And whoa, despite being one of my all-time Atlas favorites, this is the first Luster post we’ve seen around these parts in nearly 10 years! That alone should be enough to shake your money maker! 😉

After today’s post, head over to my other blog for a hilarious “Splater Version” of Siskel and Ebert’s At the Movies– PLUS, a spoof on precode horror and Creepshow!

The Coffin Maker!

A terrific terror tale full of satanic suspense, also illustrated by Sheldon Moldoff (see our last post), and this time from the October 1951, debut issue of This Magazine is Haunted #1. This would’ve made a good old 1940’s RKO horror mystery movie (starring Joan Bennett and Donald Meek), and I was actually tempted to post it here in black and white to see if it would work, but as some of you can see I’m running a bit behind schedule this October. Moldoff also created the wonderfully creepy cover art.

The Weirdest Corpse of All Time!

I’ve posted a lot of stories here over the years about stupid ass slobs getting their well-earned, just rewards. But occasionally I’ll find a tale where I have to wonder, with everything truly awful all around him: “Does this guy really deserve his grisly fate?” Maybe the life he was living was worse and his death actually becomes his well-earned escape, who knows… anyway, we’re keeping things weird and corpsey around here, in fact, today’s tale is about The Weirdest Corpse of all Time! From the December 1951 issue of This Magazine is Haunted #2, art by Sheldon Moldoff and Ed Moline.

The Corpse in the House

As we creep closer and closer to Halloween 2019, it’s time to nail down a few more putrid posts, and this rotten terror tale from the February 1954 issue off This Magazine is Haunted #15, (with art by Bob McCarty), is the perfect fix you upper / downer. I was trying to remember if I’ve ever posted a carpenter horror story here at THOIA before– and I don’t mean John! *gag!*

The Old Bat / Mad Money!

A couple of batty back-up tales from the jolting June 1953 issue of Weird Mysteries #5 make up our doomed “money is the root of all evil” Double Header post for today. And yes, these two are indeed from the issue with the infamous Bernard Baily cover featuring the gruesome corpse brain removal art! We liked this icky image so much we put it on the cover of Haunted Horror #8 way back in 2013.

They Never Return

If I ever get the go-ahead to put together another creepy collection of Haunted Love tales, this ghastly gem of morbid mad science (and even madder rotten romance) from the December 1954 issue of Mysterious Adventures #23, is certainly the perfect match made in Hell. Jay Disbrow occasionally signed his named “Jayson”, (see the splash), but you won’t find this story in our Monster Invasion collection.

Gravestone for Gratis

A wonderfully creepy, kookball classic from Farrell, and a tale that many of you might recognize from the half dozen or so Eerie Pub reprints and reworking / retitlings as “The Ghoul” in the 60’s and 70’s. Originally appearing in the Jan – Feb ’55 issue of Fantastic Comics #11, and being the last story in the final issue of this very short-lived series, it in fact actually kind of helped end things on a howling high note instead of a sad sax whimper like most brink of code days horror.
