We’ve screamed along to a lot of great Atlas tales over the last few months (and years) around here, and as you’ve likely figured out along the way, when you really need one to knock your socks off, you can always rely on bloodcurdlin’ Bill Everett to deliver the spookiest of sock knockers! A terrifically eerie entry (and cover!) from my all-time favorite artist, and from the April 1952 issue of Spellbound #2.

The recent storms here in the macabre midwest knocked out the power in my lab for a few days, but we’re back up and running, and comin’ atcha hard ‘n heavy with a rock ’em sock ’em Robot Double Feature! One is good, and one is eeeevil, but they’re actually both love stories (!!!) and if you’re scratching your scientific heads about that– then read on! Al Eadeh spooks yer screws loose with a haywire classic from the February 1954 issue of Adventures into Weird Worlds #26, while joltin’ Joe Maneely brings up the rear with a rip roarin’ round of robo hilarity from the July 1954 issue of Crazy #7.

Don’t snark at that goofy lookin’ vampire bat in the splash too quickly now, as Mannie Banks unleashes a blood sucker unlike anything else we’ve ever seen here at THOIA over the many past, monstery moons! From the maliciously macabre, May 1954 issue of Marvel Tales #123.

And happy birthday to another funny fellow wise guy, THOIA chum, and Youtube’s Mondopiece Theatre’s very own horror host, Brian Barnes, as he turns another century older today.

Another isolated comic panel cropped out of context and doomed to travel around tumblr endlessly without explaination is the screaming woman holding up a baby with a goat’s head. I’ve had a few people write to me asking about it, so here it is complete, a wonderfully odd 4 pager illustrated by rockin’ Reed Crandall and from the September 1953 issue of Men’s Adventures #23.

OMG. Another kookball investigation into the legend of Frankenstein?!! And this one even more awesomely cockamamie than the last?!! Yes. Yes it is. And I guess if we’re not careful, THOIA could become the new Frankensteinia, (I sure miss that blog!) –so with this post we also say a fond adieu to Mary Shelley’s monster and then move on to other scary subjects coming up next– but for now, enjoy one last mysterious trip down into the mad science lab, from the March 1954 issue of Mystery Tales #18.

Just when you think Atlas Month is over– here it comes again like a rampaging beast from Hell! Yes, looks like it’s not quite through with you yet! And speaking of, looks like we haven’t seen the last of Frankenstein’s monster either! From the June 1950 issue of Marvel Tales #96, with unsigned story art credits going to Gene Colan and Vince Alascia, –and meanwhile, spooky Syd Shores turned out the seriously terrific cover art piece. So what came first, the cover or the splash?

The Monster

If anyone ever does a collection of Paul Reinman horror stories, I hope this murderous monster of Frankenstein spectacular from the April 1952 issue of Marvel Tales #106 is in it. I mean, aside from just being a flat out great story in nearly all pre-code comic aspects, it truly contains some of Paul’s most panel packin’ awesome work. The row o’four in the middle of page 5 for example should be hanging in an art museum, –or deadfinitely in a dungeon somewhere! I hope you all enjoy it, and I hope you all dug this full month of “The Atlas” tales, haha. Lots more on the way, stay tombed…
