The Ghost of Abby Playhouse

One thing you can always count on in creepy old horror stories and film, is someone inheriting something evil. Usually it’s a haunted mansion or cursed castle, or some eerie inanimate object or something– but this time it’s a playhouse! And like our last post, this tale is also from the May ’53 issue of The Thing #8, this time illustrated by Bob Forgione. We might take a look at another story from this wild and uneven issue in our next post too –so stay tombed!

The Case of the Man Who Died A Lot

We’ll return to more stories from THE THING series shortly, but first we have another request for a Jack Davis post, (I get Jack Davis requests weekly, btw!) And since the requestee wasn’t very specific, thank god, I’m keeping the EC’s locked up and digging into my 70’s MAD paperback collection instead, thus dragging out this shivery chuckle fest, (written by Dick De Bartolo), and wonderfully illustrated by our man in question, the great Jack Davis— a man who, despite a few false death rumors over the last few years, is actually very much still alive a lot! This gag filled horror gem appeared in The Return of a Mad Look at Old Movies #P4200, from March 1970.

"Mirror, Mirror, On My Wall"

Finally getting things going here in May, and we’re picking up where we left off last month with another tale from the June 1952 issue of Charlton’s The Thing #3. This one just happens to be the kooky cover story too about a fluff ball cloud demon with a Gene Simmons tongue, and features art by Albert Tyler who not only worked on a lot of St. John’s precode horror titles like Weird Horrors and Strange Terrors, but also many crime caper comics as well like Lawbreakers, Crime and Justice, Racket Squad, and Super Spy.

We got a little bit busy around here this month, many apologies for the lack of updates– but why don’t we seal up the so long sucker tomb on April 2016 with a story from the June 1952 issue of The Thing #3, (also includes the inside front cover “Weird Wonders” bonus page), as well as deliver a promise (fingers crossed) to post a few more tales from this pricey Thing series in May!

STAY TOMBED!!!

The Curse of the Mandibles (Dr. Drew)

Who says Werewolf Wednesday has to be on a Wednesday? Derrrr, I only say this now because oops I forgot to hit publish on this post yesterday after uploading it! Distraction distractions!! And yeah, it’s been a while since I featured a fun and frightening Dr. Drew horror mystery, so let’s take a look at some more brilliant early work from Jerry Grandenetti (sorry, its been recolored by Eclipse in ’85 though) and marvel at what some comic book legends could accomplish over half a century ago with just 8 pages to work with. Originally presented in the Oct ’50 issue of Ranger Comics #55.

Devil-Music!

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

One more devilish tale for you before we move on to other horrific subject matter, this time from the March-April 1952 debut issue of Avon’s Witchcraft #1. Some of you already know that I’m all about the Devil-Music, but despite a nice crash crash panel, this one just didn’t pack enough heat nor did it cut the spicy hot mustard for inclusion in DEVIL TALES either. Nice inks by Vince Alascia though. And with this post, we complete another full issue presentation here at THOIA— use the search engine to check the archives, you can get the other story titles from the last scan below which is highlighted by some really cool art from the great Sid Check.

The Devil’s Prize

by on Apr.08, 2016, under Syndicated from the Web

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

After posting Curse of the Werewolf last week, (also from the Jan ’52 issue of Worlds of Fear #2), I was reminded by “Lil Raven” that there was still one story left from this issue to post, aka to chalk up as yet another THOIA full issue presentation. The story in question is the excellent Bob Powell chiller, The Devil’s Prize, which I was positive I had already posted here at some point over the years. But no, apparently I had not, and then it occurred to me that it wound up in IDW / Yoe Books Bob Powell’s Terror collection instead– lord how I wish I could’ve included it in my Devil’s Tales book too! In any event, and even if you already own the Powell collection, it deserves another summoning, if not for some superbly stunning panels (sock it to that skull!) and yes, to deem it yet another full issue blahblahblah here at THOIA. And don’t forget to check the archive for the super creeptacular City of Fearful Night which we also reprinted in HAUNTED HORROR #13!
