We’re at the halfway point of the February 1952 issue of Black Cat Mystery #33 (check the last two posts for more), and in case I forgot to mention it, I think I always start off the new year with a full issue. Right? I think so. Anyway, we’ve already seen some monsters and scorpions, now it’s time to drag out the most horrific horror subject that ever horror’d horror– GOLF HORROR!! Don’t be too quick to judge this one, it’s actually a hole in one– in your head! Errr, or something…

Army of Scorpions!

I’m guessing scorpion reference material was hard to come by in 1952– cuz seriously, can anyone guess what Tom Hickey was thinking when he illustrated this Harvey quickie from the February 1952 issue of Black Cat Mystery #33?! It’s still a fun, gruesome, little tale, and while it probably won’t rock you like a hurricane or anything, it might just get you in the mood to use that Red Lobster gift certificate that you recently got for xmas.

We ended 2014 in the electric chair– and dear god *choke!* we find ourselves strapped right back in here in 2015! Rudy Palais shows us just how eerily electrifying things can get– from my utterly destroyed copy of the February 1952 issue of Black Cat Mystery #33.

Shattering the Time Barrier

Some really interesting art and super panels highlight this ghostly shocker from the June 1953 issue of The Hand of Fate #23. Anyone got a clue who the artist is? Even the cool Ace Horror site seems to be stymied. This issue also contains the tremendous Lou Cameron classic “He Who Robs the Dead” which we posted way back in 2008 HERE! Be sure to check it out after today’s post too!

Death is a Dummy in Disguise

Added a Howdy Doody dummy to my son’s ever growing ventriloquist doll collection this xmas… he’s got quite a weird little army amassing– and the wife says they give her the heebie jeebies! Now for you guys, I also have a ventriloquist related present, a story with an equally weird bit of “unexpected” heebie jeebies –as well as the creeps! From the March 1974 issue of The Unexpected #156.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Phony Face! / Skin Deep

We haven’t had a Double (Be)Header around here in a while, in fact, let’s call this one a “Face-Off!” shall we? We pit DC’s House of Mystery against their own House of Secrets in a no holds barred match of tales sharing a similar theme. Which one comes out on top? Our first story is from the August 1972 issue of HoM #205, while the opposing yarn is from the April 1973 issue of HoS #107.

Another story from the March 1953 issue of Beware! Terror Tales #6, art by Sheldon Moldoff. According to GCD, this tale was later reprinted in the 70′s in a series called Super Giant, a K. G. Murray mish-mash of precode and silver age Marvel stories that ran 21 issues, with each issue being  100 pages long and a cover price of 40 cents. I’ve never seen these before, anyone else? If you’re interested, click HERE for more info after the story…

The Tattooed Heart!

I guess it’s been a while since we delved into the horrors of wartime atrocities, and of course any tale concerning nazi concentration camps is bound to be extra horrific. But fret not, this journey down a very dark chapter of world history actually has a light at the end of it, as you will soon see. From the March 1953 issue of Beware! Terror Tales #4, art by Harry Harrison, maybe…

Your Grave is Ready

The Seduction of the Innocent 80′s comic book series from Eclipse is a good source of info for precode horror reprints and other related items concerning hard to find golden age stories. Unfortunately, their atrocious re-color process of the stories seriously makes me want to claw my eyes out, so I dumped the crappy color “upgrade” of this Sekowsky / Adru (???) werewolf tale, originally featured in the March 1953 issue of The Unseen #9, simply for the fact that I thought it would be nicer to look at the line work in black and white instead– and if you don’t agree, I don’t care…
