I must crave your pardon…

I am a new assistant to Master Karswell– Nequam is a name that suffices.

Think of me as an archivist, or librarian. Along with cleaning up some archived comments that have done nothing but attract vermin, I shall be working on indexing the contents so that readers interested in the works of particular artists, publishers and suchlike will be able to find them in the archives more easily.

I may even– with Master Karswell’s gracious permission– rearrange a few things. Adding shelves, as it were.

Please bear with me!

The Thing That Grew!

It’s long after midnight, and we are now into the wee hours of the new year. Mom and dad arrive home from a night of hard partying to find that their son Timmy is still awake. “Happy New Year, bud! Hey now, what the heck are you still doing up?” asks dad, followed by a few drunken hiccups like you’d see in an old cartoon. “I can’t sleep,” whines Timmy, “tell me a story.” “Your dad is in no shape to be telling you stories, Timmy!” warns mom, as she stumbles into the coffee table. “What? Nahhh, I’m fine,” says dad, wavering a bit while loosening his tie, “You come on upstairs with me, my boy, and I’ll tell you the single greatest story you’ve ever heard in your life!” “Alright!” exclaims Timmy. “Uhhh boy…” groans mom. Upstairs, Timmy hops into his Howdy Doody sheeted bed, dad lowers the light. (Mom passes out halfway up the steps.) “You’re gonna love this one, Tommy…” slurs dad, sounding way too much like W.C. Fields. “My name is Timmy…” says Timmy.

“I call this one…”

(Actually from the November 1951 issue of Witches Tales #6)

"True" Uncanny Experiences: Satan’s Hair Salon

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

Another satanical story that didn’t quite make the final cut of my DEVIL TALES collection (available HERE!) comes from the January-February 1953 issue of Skeleton Hand #3. I’m still kind of bummed about it too as I love the idea of our fearless leader of Hades being a hairdresser, haha, but alas, the story itself is a bit similar to another one featured in the book, and you all know how much I love vicious variety! Anyway, it’s a short ‘n sweet one, so I’ll have a larger post up next… in the meantime, why not go getcher hair done up too!

Did somebody ask Santa for puppets this xmas? Thought so! And you know that Mr. Klauswell is always more than happy to give the gift that creeps on giving! So Happy Horrordays, gang– hope everyone gets everything little thing they want and deserve this season. We might be back for a few more before the end of the year, we’ll see how the scheduling goes– so stay tombed! From the February 1953 issue of Mysterious Adventures #12, art by Jon D’Agostino.

The Secret of Bat Island! / Flight into Fright

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

I was having a conversation with someone a few months back about a story concerning a guy who drinks bat blood to halt the aging process. It was assumed this was a precode story, but alas, digging through my 70’s DC horror long boxes, it seems it actually appeared in the Jan-Feb 1973 issue of Weird Mystery Tales #4 (unless of course someone knows of a precode story I’m somehow missing!), art by Bill Draut. And since this story is kind of short, I thought we’d round trip things out with another oddball yarn featuring the world’s worst (or greatest?) travel agent ever, from the Oct-Nov 1974 issue of Weird Mystery Tales #14, this issue highlighted by one of my all time favorite Luiz Dominguez covers no less! So off we go– one by air, and one by sea, pack your fangs and hop aboard for a double feature excursion into batty bluh-bluh-bluh-blood sucker terror-tory!

Back in 2012, Craig and I unleashed a horde of flesh eaters upon fans of precode horror collections with ZOMBIES (IDW / Yoe Books, still available HERE!), and now in 2017, we’ve dug up another plague of undead for you to devour –or be devoured by!
