The Were-Tiger of Assam

You guys thought you were getting off pretty easy with only one were-tiger story this month, didn't ya? Well, no such luck... and though this one is a bit lengthy, way more on the high adventure side, and a tad light on the horror, it's still loads of fun and actually very funny at times-- and Charles Sultan draws such a sexy, purring, snarling Tigra, you'll totally forget all about that other weird ass were-tiger-- guaranteed!

From the Nov. '51 issue of Adventures into the Unknown #25.

Shadows in Pawn / Devil's Stones

The final two pieces of the June 1952 issue of The Unseen #5 puzzle... a puzzling issue of high weirdness I mean, as witnessed in our last post HERE about the hunter, but also the story about the giant man-eating caterpillar in the THOIA Archive HERE; the spectral highwayman horrors from an Alex Toth classic HERE, and finally today's Abe Simon entry about a man without a shadow! (Plus a one page bonus filler tale.) Hope everyone enjoyed another FULL ISSUE presentation!

The Nine Horrors

What's worse than having to kill a were-tigress that relentlessly stalks you and your best gal? How about one that has to be killed 9 times because-- oh yeah-- it's a cat! A fun dose of jungle jitters from the June 1952 debut issue of The Unseen #5 (umm, wait a sec, how is issue #5 the debut you ponder? Ask Pines!) Super slick artwork from Ross Andru too, who also illustrated the cover.

The Sorcerer / Dark Dancer

You read Daughter of Doom in our last post, and The Mummy Master in the THOIA Archive is located right HERE! Now read the other two stories from the March 1955 issue of Beware #14 for not only a THOIA Double Feature, but also another FULL ISSUE presentation! Artwork on The Sorcerer is by Sid Check!

Daughter of Doom

Just when you thought you'd read every story about Satanic cursed salamander cloaks, along comes the Daughter of Doom, from the March 1955 issue of Beware #14. NOTE: Beware #14 was the last precode issue from this occasionally terrific Trojan series.

Invasion of the Windsuckers from Beyond the Stars

If this blog ever starts becoming too predictable, please please please remember that I posted this 4 page pants splitter about far-out fart lovers from beyond the stars. How many of you even knew there was a Nation Lampoon-esque magazine called Apple Pie published by Lopez in the mid 70's anyway? Yep, 8 whole issues! Learn something pew every day...

From the gag-inducing March 1975 "Flatulence" (debut) issue of Apple Pie Vol. 1 #1

Fire Dance

An apology awaits as I know it's been awhile since our last post, but sinister scanner issues (as well as my teenage son who's now on summer vacation and creating his own video game) have allowed me very little time on my own damn computer! But now, finally, we'll leap forward a bit into the silver age of horror comics for another weirdly mysterious tale, this time about the mother of all moths, from the June 1975 issue of Weird Mystery Tales #19, highlighted by a spooky Luiz Dominguez cover, and eerie interior art by Abe Ocampo. Today's special post is also dedicated to another ravishingly lovely moth I know ;) enjoy-- lots more on the way this summer, I promise!
