Secret Coffin

To celebrate the One Year Anniversary of THOIA (which just occured on the 12th of this month last Saturday) I’m presenting a variety of comics in their entirety throughout July. We’ve already had one full issue on display at the beginning of the month, and now here’s the second, the Sept/Oct 1954 issue of Fantastic Fears #9. Chocked full of stories concerning iron maiden torture, rotting ghouls, necrophilia, witches, and satanic shenanigans, you’re going to absolutely adore every single page of this one... I know I do!

That story is brilliantly mental.

"OLD CASTLE EXPLODES!"

I love the well thought out plan - "well one workman is dead from an accident, so I'll hide the body and just kill the other one while I'm at it too"

TOTALLY CRAZY TALE, BUT I DISAGREE THAT ITS POORLY EXECUTED, IN FACT ITS SUPERBLY SIMPLE PLOT AND ODD ARTWORK MAKE IT ONE OF MY RECENT FAVORITES HERE. THE CREEPY FACE CLOSE-UPS ARE WHAT PRECODE HORROR IS ALL ABOUT!

Happy Anniversary, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy!

Looooove those ghoul close-ups. Oh the horror, the drippy asymmetrical horror!

And a poorly spelled poorly, chum.

Thanks again for the One Year wishes everyone, looking forward to Year Two and all the horrors I can possibly deliver. Now if only I could make this comment explode for no real reason like that castle. Working on it...

Besides Cole's and Toth's ( which are literally in another league )perhaps this is my favourite among the stories you posted in the last month or so ...
Thanks for sharing !

"Oh Well, wherever, wherever you are,
Iron Maiden's gonna get you, no matter how far.
See the blood flow watching it shed up above my head.
Iron Maiden wants you for dead."

Cool story, love the monster faces! Here's hoping THOIA is enjoying a Nathan Grantham style cake for your birthday this week!

"Old Castle Explodes!" stories ought to be as common as vampire and werewolf stories. So underrepresented.

Happy Birthday THOIA! I hope the head gets many more candles before it's all said and done.

Also, I hope we've hit upon a new inside-joke motif here. I want something to explode For No Apparent Reason at the end of every single story now. Otherwise, I cannot possibly have any kind of closure.
