Jose Cruz was the first person to enter the Zombies Book Halloween Contest, and his name was also the first one we drew out of the horror hat– congrats, Jose! So many excellent, eerie entries, it’s just a further reminder that THOIA has the best (aka creepiest) followers of any horror blog on the web! I’ll be having another contest giveaway in mid November, so don’t fret– you might just win something yet! And as we draw closer to Halloween, it’s time to unleash a wicked witch story from the December 1953 issue of Adventures into Darkness #12, (art by George Roussos) –featuring a colony of creaky Count Chocula bats, and a truly painful looking fence impalement!

Jose awaits his prize…

Final Take!

I had a request for something “monstery” from DC, and this tale from the Oct-Nov. ’73 issue of Weird Mystery Tales #8 is pretty fun, –though the cliched plot of a film crew making a horror movie in a haunted house is certainly not pulling any surprises, DeZuniga’s art is wonderfully creep-filled, pulling image reference from classic horror legends like Karloff, Lugosi, Lee, and Chaney.

PS: Don’t forget about our ZOMBIES book give-away contest (see our last post HERE!) I think I’ll extend the deadline through the weekend– winners announced on Monday, October 27th!

What’s in a Name?

Mister Mystery was a wildly uneven comic series featuring both excellent examples of top notch pre code stories, as well as hilariously clunky, barrel bottom gems like today’s tale concerning a hapless fool trying to pull a fast one, (fast = 5 years?!) Charles Stern’s art here is about as stiff ‘n flimsy as the script, though there is a minor moment where he’s suddenly channeling (aka swiping) either Jack Davis or Howard Nostrand with a teensy bit of suckcess, see the panel at the bottom of page 3 (mad head) for an example– har! Also, those of you out there who are model airplane enthusiasts might find that yes, life really does imitate art!

From the January 1953 issue of Mister Mystery #9.

To Kill a Werewolf!

It’s another haphazard Werewolf Wednesday, yes, I know it’s been awhile –and man when was the last time I posted a Bill Everett story?! This mean spirited lycan tale originally appeared in the Jan ’54 issue of Menace #9, in color, and titled “The Fangs of the Wolf”, and now here retitled years later, color sucked out, and reprinted in the August ’73 issue of Vampire Tales #1. Yipe!

Revenge of the Unliving!

If you thought in our last post that Frank Robbins drew sexy vampires, wait’ll you see how Jordi Bernet delivers them unto us in this one! I had a few people write in applauding the black and white 70′s mag posts, so I thought we’d do a few more before getting back into the golden color moldies. Bernet is one of my all time favorite illustrators, anyone unfamiliar with his Torpedo series should take some notes to check it out ASAP.

From the August 1973 debut issue of Vampire Tales #1, with a script by Gardner Fox.

Vance wrote in reminding me to post more Frank Robbins, so I dug around the crypt a little and unearthed this awesome bloodsucker classic written by Doug Moench –plus an art assist from Frank Springer. Robbins really amps up the sexy and sinister in this one, –so hang onto your fangs and BATten down the hatches!

From the November 1974 issue of Dracula Lives! #9.
