Spooky month is now in session (see all previous months as well because it's ALWAYS spooky month at THOIA!) --and let's roll out a real batso-wacko blood sucker weirdie fluttering all the way back to the June - July 1951 debut issue of Dark Mysteries #1! You freakier fans of Haunted Horror might remember we put this gruesome gem in the October 2013 issue of HH #7! And get a load of that Orlando / Wood cover art!

Time now for a creepy Atlas classic by Bob Powell, from the May 1954 issue of Menace #11 (love those ghastly ghosts) and highlighted by a menacingly iconic cover by Harry Anderson.

Goofy lookin' host aside (I can actually think of plenty of names for "The Nameless One"), this is a wonderfully eerie tale from the July 1954 issue of Beware #10 about spooky skeleton pirates guarding their sunken sea booty vs. those who try to take it from them! THOIA art fave, Art Gates, again demonstrates just exactly how underrated he is / was...
