Bride of Satan

Flash Forward to the satanic 70's, and here's an evil classic conjured up by George Kashdan and Vicente Alcazar for the December 1974 issue of Witching Hour #49. Also, for anyone looking for HAUNTED HORROR #6 this week (as incorrectly reported), it'll actually be in stores next week on Sept 4th!

Blood on Her Lips

Even the typically revolting print job on today's Superior Publishing story can't hold back the ferocity of a woman out for blood! From the January 1953 issue of Journey into Fear #11.

That Stray Cat

Today's story was originally slated to appear in Adventures into Darkness #15 in 1954, but thanks to the Comics Code this issue never happened. Fast forward to October 1985 and Eclipse Comics unearthed these unfinished pages in their Three Dimensional Seduction of the Innocent #1... also check the THOIA archives for the other stories in this "lost" issue: "Death Dives Deep", "Harvest of Death", and "Tryst with Terror!" (The usual Standard Comics bonuses and text tale fill out the ends of each post.) And don't worry, you don't need 3D glasses for any of these either.

Claws of Horror

Got a theme developin' here, so change your litter box and batten down your fur (it's standing on end again) it's time to head deep into the jungle of terror for a purrfectly wild weirdie from the January 1954 issue of Horrific #9 (artwork by Marty Elkin.)

The Cry of Satan

After a fun 'n lengthy look at some different types of 70's comic book horror, THOIA now jumps back into freakish 50's pre-code mode with a shape-shifting tale of witchcraft and crazy cat ladies! From the August 1952 issue of Tomb of Terror #3!

The Boy Who Cried Vampire / Behold the Beast

Concluding our look into the terrific two-issue series of Archies style teenage terrors, from the September 1972 issue of Chilling Adventures in Sorcery as Told By Sabrina #1DeCarlo and Goldberg seriously had a good thing going here with this expertly illustrated / written series (see our last post as well for issue #2 in its entirety), and it's a shame it ended so soon-- though Sabrina of course continued on well into the 80's with her own fun 'n frisky witch comics! And don't forget to check out the other two stories from this issue by clicking HERE after you've read these two-- hope you've enjoyed this look into a somewhat slightly lighter side of The Horrors of it All!
