More Flaming Horror!

Just when you thought your horror couldn't get any more flaming, comes this extra grim pot-boiler from the May 1952 issue of Witches Tales #10. Strangulation, stabbing, poker to the skull, and of course bodies flambe'd to a crisp-- they certainly don't come more mean-spirited than this! (Art by Joe Certa)

Flaming Horror

As everyone works on adding an extra layer to their midsections and asses today, here's another story about a tubby individual with a whole other set of problems to contend with than just his weight! From the November 1952 issue of Strange Mysteries #8.

Happy Fangsgiving, fiends!

The Ghost Who Stole a Body

Time for the 'ol spirit switcheroo in another tale from the Jan '51 issue of The Beyond #2. This one feels more like an ACG story than one from Ace, but it's fun in a goofy sort of way, and some of the dialog is priceless: "From now on I only operate on millionaires, not bums!" and "Mazo...Mazo...Mazobulabula...", and get a load of that opening splash narrative, did Ed Wood write that shit?! Nice art from Ken Rice, --oh, check the archive for other stories in this issue-- yep, another bizarro Beyond is now posted in its entirety!

The WORST of Eerie Publications

In comic shops now (available everywhere else on November 18th!) it's The WORST of Eerie Publications, the latest book in the Chilling Archives of Horror Comics collections from IDW / Yoe Books, and ferocious follow-up to Mike Howlett's superb and equally sickening The Weird World of Eerie Publications. With "the worst", we're actually getting a taste of the best, with nearly 2 dozen Eerie Pub stories gore-geously reprinted in black and white, full-cover covers and originals, info on publisher Myron Fass and the artists associated, and lots more! Outstandingly produced and designed by Jason Willis, just try to find another comic book collection with more severed heads, bulging eyeballs, and blood drenched pages than this --it even comes with a barf bag!

Click HERE to order your copy, and below we have a tease taste, encore presentation of a Dick Ayers classic found within the putrid pages that'll really knock your block 'n socks off!

The Mystery of Lunablanca

Maurice Gutwirth nicely illustrates one of the more memorably sexy, precode vampire women of the 50's (love those upside down bat wings!), in this early Ace horror tale from the January 1951 issue of The Beyond #2. And how gorgeous is that Warren Kremer cover!
