HAUNTED HORROR #31 / IF...

HAUNTED HORROR #31 is in stores TODAY, and it's full of hairy 'n scary 'n scaly terrors, plus a couple of oddly titled classics that have been featured here at THOIA in the past, (but you know you love revisiting the most revolting of 'em again anyway!) --and we have both featured here today as part of our Double December xmas posts, aka an encore presentation for you long time, lifelong regulars. So pick up the current issue NOW for all of the other deadly details and deceaseries, and decompositions, and downright death riddled... derrrrrrr... sorry, I ran out of kooky Karswell korn.

I wonder what the deal was with these two stories? Obviously one is a remake of the other. If the noose is first and the coffin is second, then that's a good thing because coffin fixes a lot of problems noose had. If the other way around, that's a bad thing!

That said, noose leaves a little mystery (not counting the mystery of the panel reading order on some pages!) and coffin spells it right out. Honestly, death can't be so bad if reapers are such lookers!

I loved the art and coloring on the second version of the story. The characters and dialog were excellent in that version too. Looking back at the original posts, I see that coffin version was certainly published first, at least. And obviously, it is the more polished story of the two. But some part of me finds the ominously growing noose to be the creepier icon--even while I wouldn't want to change the far chillier sleepy-time ending of the coffin story for anything.

Happy Christmas, everyone!
