Vengeance of the Red Ghost

Today is the last day of our “Ghost Stories for Christmas” theme, and it’s a spooky slasher from the March 1953 issue of Web of Evil #3. I’ll have another Web of Evil story for you tomorrow as we kick off yet another theme that will hopefully annihilate December and 2008 with a bang. More on that later… and Happy Boxing Day to my friends in Canada!








TOMORROW: Sci-Fi Horror Week Begins!

+++++++++++++++++++++++

House of Horror

As many of you know, I don’t usually post pre-code text stories, but I thought this one was pretty good, (and also from the March 1953 issue of Web of Evil #3.) It's short, to the point and spooky, with just a touch of supernatural grisliness. Check it out, you won't be sorry...

Blood Freak vs. Poltergeist

Late tonight on TCM Underground, don’t miss a true turkey monster cult classic--- Blood Freak (’72), followed by the truly terrifying Tobe Hooper / Steven Spielberg mindblower, Poltergeist (’82.) Witness just how far horror movies progressed in 10 years, haha…
As usual, check TCM for more info and showtimes in your area.

HaHa!. I love it when villains brag about their evil deeds. "Don't forget my 4 husbands". Great stuff to help shake off an Eggnogg/Jack Daniels hangover.

WITH ONE MORE PANELS OR EVEN A ANOTHER PAGE SHOWING HER TERROR OF BEING LOCKED IN THE MORGUE THIS WOULDN'T HAVE FELT SO RUSHED AT THE END BUT STILL A COOL TALE AND LOVED THE ART AND COLORING.
THE HOUSE OF HORROR STORY WAS SURPRISINGLY GOOD TOO! I NEVER READ THOSE EITHER BUT NOW MAYBE I'LL START.

AND THANKS FOR THE BLOOD FREAK NEWS TOO, NEVER SAW IT BUT IT SOUNDS HYSTERICAL. POLTERGEIST IS AWESOME

Blood Freak is just as good as Poltergeist- in it's own way...

did TCM pair those up because both films have people smoking pot and giggling in them?

Thanks to the handful of you that stopped by today, and don't forget tomorrow marks the start of our Sci Fi Horrors Week... those of you that have been with me from the beginning know that means more horror than science.

I really like the Web of Evil stories, the consistant art reminds me of a more talented bullpen than even the Iger shop over at Superior. The Quality Pub team might actually be more on par with EC than Atlas, not saying they're better just equally talented. Any thoughts?
