Teddy Doesn't Seem to Smile Anymore!

Wow, we haven't had a Frank Robbins story around here since 2016. Time to fix that with a funny little 3-page chiller from the August - September 1974 issue of House of Mystery #226. Nobody draws cute women quite like 'ol Frank did, and here's a perfect example...

The Werewolf Takes a Wife / Her Other Face

Double Header Day again, and get ready for two of my all-time favorite loony tune Atlas tales, both of which can be found in the April 1954 issue of Astonishing #32. It's a duelin' dose of monster maiden mayhem featuring hilarious horror twists on two creeps the likes of which I'm not sure any of us have seen around here in a while, --if ever! And yes, Werewolf Wednesday is a day early because I'll be busy for the next few, but also because I want to give everyone a chance to read these before posting again. And one more thing: even though it's still technically incorrect, please read BOTH tales before screamin' "cover blurb mix-up!" haha, wtf...

The Monster in the Mist!

Brian wrote in squawkin' for more sexy snake lady tales as featured here a bit towards the end of last month. So while I dig around for more of those, let's take care of another very long over due request from Shannon Walsh who wrote to me back in January asking for more creepy Kirk of Scotland Yard action! Sounds good to me as the other Kirk posts in the THOIA ARCHIVE HERE are some of my absolute most favorite precode detective horror stories of all time! And to make matters even cooler, Shannon's grandfather is actually Paul Parker-- the fabulous artist of these great golden age fright classics! I sincerely apologize for the delay-- please enjoy! From the June 1948 issue of Manhunt #9.

The Tiny Coffin!

It's been a number of years since we've seen a macabre Matt Fox freak-out here at THOIA, so how about a really oddball one from the ominous October 1954 issue of Mystery Tales #22 to totally get your skin a'crawlin'! Yes, we finally get August 2022 rollin' into fear... errr, gear, --stay tombed for lots more!
