Pursuit of the Vampire

We continue honoring the life and legacy of actor Christopher Lee, who recently passed away at the age of 93, --and here's another black and white, blood sucker classic that was originally posted here a few years ago (again for those of you who are new to THOIA.) From the debut issue of Creepy #1, and later reprinted in the Sept. '79 issue of Dracula '79, aka Warren Presents #5-- more specifically, this "collector's edition" magazine features an incredible painting of Chris Lee on the cover.

Dracula's Guest

We lost the last of the iconic, golden age horror greats yesterday, and we will honor his legacy throughout the month with tales related to his amazing life and career. To many, the man was Dracula, so what better place to start than with an encore presentation of the Bram Stoker classic, "Dracula's Guest" adapted by Frank Bolle in 1966 for Christopher Lee's Treasury of Terror paperback (originally featured here at THOIA back in 2010.)

Rest in peace, dear Prince of Darkness.

The Maze Master

Ready for a trippy, nightmarish descent into horror, as only the great Lou Cameron would deliver it? This is not your typical THOIA type tale, though it is full of surreal panels and oddball creeps 'n creatures. This is also the final story scanned from the April 1954 issue of Baffling Mysteries #20, check the archives for the other 3 classics from this collection: "Tune of the Zombie Queen", "Hostage of the Unearthly", and "When Voodoo Drums Rumble."
