When Death Takes a Hand

While I’m working on a larger Halloween themed post, here’s a minor supernatural quickie with spooky art by Gene Fawcette, from the August 1954 issue of Out of the Shadows #14. This was the final issue of this interesting horror series, and nearly half the stories in this one received the remake / reprint treatment in the Eerie Pubs a few decades later… our current tale in question eventually finding itself retitled “Deadman’s Hands” and appearing in no less than 5 different Eerie issues.

The Secret of Sleed’s Castle

And now, the fourth and final story from the April 1952 issue of Mysterious Adventures #7, dig the previous 3 posts for the other tales. This is a better than average Hollingsworth effort, though typically contains some laughable illustrative moments (like the perspective hand problem in panel 4 on page 5), but overall it’s still a fun entry in one of the better collections from this precode series. Hope everyone enjoyed another full issue presentation here at THOIA— lots more on the way for Halloween— and beyond!

The Curse of the Flying Dutchman

It’s awesome enough to get one Lou Cameron story in a single issue– but getting TWO feels like discovering buried treasure! And this one is indeed a doozy as well, though not as bat shit crazy as the tattoo tale in our last post, but it sure does have its moments– including one particularly painful panel that might make you wince, as well as a superbly spooky ending.

From the April 1952 issue of Mysteries Adventures #7.

The Terror of a Tatooed Man

Yes, I know the word “tattoo” has 3 T’s in it, but that didn’t stop the still amazingly talented, Lou Cameron from illustrating and delivering what it pretty much the best and most gruesome story in the April 1952 issue of Mysterious Adventures #7. Seriously, this tale is full of awesome WTF. Looking forward to the comments on this one! ­čÖé More from this crazy issue up next too!

Speaking of Crazy, if you’re a fan of the same named silver age magazine published by Marvel, (as well as a fan of the film, The Exorcist), head on over to my other blog for their hilarious spoof from the August 1974 issue of Crazy #6! Just CLICK HERE!

The Absent Minded Fiend

While in Orlando last week for Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights, I picked up a coverless, though very nicely priced, copy of the April 1952 issue of Mysterious Adventures #7 (thank you Colosseum of Comics!) This gem of an issue contains all sorts of insanity and violence, and I do believe we’ll be taking a look at the entire issue throughout this great halloweeny month of October! So hang onto your various body parts, kids, cuz for the next four posts we’ll be gagging on tales about cannibals, zombies, ghost pirates, and deadly tattoos!

Horror Without a Head

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

One of my all time favorite precode Harvey stories is “Headless Horror” from the May 1952 issue of Chamber of Chills #8— click HERE to read it in our THOIA Archive! It’s surprisingly gory and superbly atmospheric, and seriously, I like it so much I put it in the “Scarifying Mr. Karswell Issue” of Haunted Horror #14! So again today we have an Eerie Pub remake/redraw, retitled “Horror Without a Head”, and as usual we see an updated Harvey classic (this time with Nestor Olivera art) that is visually moody and cinematic, though I will say the 50’s original is probably more effectively violent because we get to see all that glorious gore in FULL COLOR! Another interesting choice in the remake is to take the fabulous panel from page 6 of the original story and rework it a bit for the new splash. Like our previous posts this month, today’s tale is also from the September 1981 issue of of Terrors of Dracula Vol. 3 #2. Anybody getting tired of these Eerie Pub remakes yet?
