Not to be confused with A.C. Hollingsworth’s Ghouls Feast at Midnight (click HERE for a second helping if you’re still starving later), todays morbid mouthful from Sekowsky / Peppe first appeared in the March 1954 issue of Adventures into Darkness #13. Surprisingly, I haven’t posted much from this issue here over the years, even though it’s one of the oldest rags in my collection, so don’t be surprised if we see a few more from it over the next few posts. Sound good? Yes, yes, you can stop smacking your lips now– ugh! Included side order: an Ambrose Bierce, one-page quickie illustrated by Gene Fawcett… Standard was always good for interesting comic book filler such as this.

Many of you seem to enjoy these Horrors on the High Seas posts, and we’ve got another one sailing your way now from the March – April 1952 issue of Witchcraft #1 from Avon. No art credit listed at GCD, though I’m fairly certain this is Harry Lazarus…
Due to the west coast seaport shut-down, Haunted Horror #15 will not be in stores today according to Previewsworld, –dead in the water, so to speak (along with everything else from IDW this week!) We will keep you informed on any new developments. In the meantime, we’ll keep the death rolling along with a couple of screamers from the June 1952 issue of Black Cat Mystery #36.
Also featured in HAUNTED HORROR #15 (coming next week) is this deadly Don Heck story, originally presented in the May 1954 issue of Weird Terror #11. I don’t mean to be a terrifying tease, but this issue also contains stories from Journey into Fear, Dark Mysteries, Witchcraft, Web of Evil, Mister Mystery, and more! It’s gonna be killer– see ya next wee-eeek!
HAUNTED HORROR #15 is finally in stores next week, and featuring a ghastly assortment of demons, brutes, monsters, fiends, and oddball ordeals! PLUS this sickening swashbuckler from the Jan. ’53 issue of Strange Mysteries #9! Hard to believe we’ve made it 15 issues already, Yoe ho ho! Check around the web for more previews!

For all of my snow-bound friends on the east coast, here’s a frigidly faithful Tony Isabella and Esteban Maroto adaptation of August Derleth’s fear-fraught Weird Tales short story classic “The Drifting Snow” from the April 1974 issue of Vampire Tales #4 magazine. Awesome cover by Boris too, though the blurb incorrectly states the story is called “Night of the Snow Vampire.” Keep warm friends, we’ll get back into the precode gold next– stay tombed!
Never before have I seen such Satanic salivating for a second part to a story from THOIA followers as this! And so here it is, friends, your devilish due in the soul-searing finale of this wild, roller coaster ride into Hell, from the March 1975 issue of The Many Ghosts of Doctor Graves #50; highlighted by the awesome art by Tom Sutton. And for more Sutton, check the THOIA Archive, as well as the brand spankin’ new Chilling Archives of Comics hardcover, Tom Sutton’s Creepy Things, from IDW / Yoe Books– just click HERE!
Honoring the release of IDW / Yoe Books latest Chilling Archive collection, Tom Sutton’s Creepy Things, we’ll be taking a look at some Sutton for the next few posts– more specifically, this epic two-part tale of satanic evil from the March 1975 issue of The Many Ghosts of Doctor Graves #50, published by Charlton Comics. Sutton unleashes all the fury of Hell in this one, some really spectacular art absolutely bursting with towering, demonic power– and wait until you see Part Two! Better say your prayers…
