The Living and the Dead!

The atmospheric art of Al Eadeh is always a welcome addition to the THOIA Archive, so here we go with another frighteningly fine, exceptionally eerie entry, and this time from the January 1954 issue of Mystic #26.

The Baby Sitter / The Glasses!

The aliens have landed, as we continue unraveling the marvelous mysteries of the April 1954 issue of Marvel Tales #122. And it's a creepy creature double feature for you as well, with Tony Dipreta and Chuck Winters reminding you that we are most certainly not alone in the universe!

The Man Without a Body

We're sticking with Atlas for a few more posts, but now diving deep into the April 1954 issue of Marvel Tales #122, with a tale of shabby science colliding with extreme gold digging (a favorite theme among miserable pre code writers and artists apparently!) But hold the phone-- does this one end the way they usually do?

Terror at Midnight

Last tale from the August 1952 issue of Suspense #21, and that makes it official-- another FULL ISSUE PRESENTATION here at THOIA (check out the last 5 posts for the rest of this issue in case you missed anything!) Nice artwork in today's post too-- and especially during this awful summer heatwave, these snowbound stories of wintery weirdness are very much welcome to help cool things down with some shivery chills up 'n down our 'ol spooked-out spines!













More Atlas on the way too-- stay tombed! (And while you're at it, head over to my other blog for some Monster News and Monster Hit Parade fun too! CLICK HERE!)

The Secret

A couple more to go from the August 1952 issue of Suspense #21, --and whoa, you've likely seen some pretty lousy ladies presented on this blog over the years, but here's one that'll really get under your skin! Ah well, won't be long until "skin" is apparently no longer an issue (rhymes with tissue) --and by the way, can somebody please get me one, because this story makes me tear up every time!











We also want to wish long-time THOIA follower, Brian Barnes, a very happy birthday today (I believe he turns 87 if I'm not mistaken), and... what a sec... his first and last name both start with a B as well! Also, that beard! AIEEEEE!!!

No Escape!

We're still wandering around inside the August 1952 issue of Suspense #21, and while there actually is "NO ESCAPE!" here, there also isn't any until the final story-- uhhh what??? --yep, two more to go, (I've decided to do another full issue presentation!) --and my oh my, none of these tales in this stellar issue will have you screaming "deja vu!" more than this one either! Okay, this is definitely the goofiest intro I've ever written...derrrr...

The Graveyard Ghoul! / Up from the Grave!

I think we're gonna stick with the August 1952 issue of Suspense #21 for a little while longer, it seriously contains some real gems, like today's gravely insane double feature of cemetery scares 'n silly / spooky shenanigans!
