EC editor Al Feldstein died early this month last year so to remember him here is a story he wrote and illustrated from Tales from the Crypt #22.

With this new outing with Gyo, we’ll cover the next two chapters back to back since they go together pretty well (6 pages from each). Let’s see how this fun train continues with Tadashi and Kaori as more fish with mechanical legs come ashore.

Alright, we had our fun with the first chapter of Gyo, so let’s continue on and take a look at the second issue of the series! Things are going to get weirder.

Note: The pages are still from the Editor’s Choice edition of the manga from all the way back in 2003 instead of the newer editions.

Junji Ito. There’s really nothing more to say about the guy. He’s one of the most celebrated horror creators around with famous series like Uzumaki and Tomie and memorable short stories, like the Enigma of Amigara Fault. However, sometimes even the best of creators… can have an off day. Hence, I present to you Ito’s other popular short series, Gyo.

With the hardcover release of Gyo coming soon, let’s take a look at this manga, in particular, the first chapter. Our pages below are from the Editor’s Choice edition of the manga from all the way back in 2003 instead of the newer edition.

Something different for this one. Comixology is having an EC sale until 11 tonight (EST) for some Fantagraphic collections of various EC comics in black and white to better show off the artist's work. You can access the page here.

Here's a sampling of a story from Graham Ingels, originally published in Haunt of Fear #17.

For my final horror-themed post of the month, here's a Basil Wolverton creeper from Gillmor's Weird Mysteries #5 (June 1953). Public domain; thanks once again to ComicBookPlus.com for the scans.

Another cheesy chiller from Harvey's Chamber of Chills (public domain). This one's from #3 (Oct 1951). Art and, possibly, script by Bob Powell, with art assists from Howard Nostrand and Marvil Epp (whose name is on the tombstone in page 8). Trigger warning for suicide.

Cobwebs and castles and corneas, oh my! )

Harvey Comics is best remembered as a publisher of kids' comics, but like MLJ/Archie, there was a time it dealt in a variety of genres, including horror, giving that up only when the establishment of the Comics Code Authority in 1954 put an end to stories such as the one I present here in its entirety, from Chamber of Chills #7 (April 1952; scans of this public domain title courtesy of ComicBookPlus.com). The gruesome denouement of "Crawling Death" (writer unknown, art by Abe Simon and Don Perlin) got special mention in Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent. Trigger warning for gore.

Typical human reaction: 'I'm going to kill it!! It might be some rare species!!' )

P. Craig Russell's psychedelic adaptation of Lovecraft's "mad science" tale, originally written in 1920 and published in 1934. From Heavy Metal Vol. 18, No. 2 (May 1994).

In 1972, Archie Comics made its first major venture, since the MLJ days, into horror, with the series Chilling Adventures in Sorcery as Told by Sabrina. (This is not to be confused with the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina title launched earlier this very month in the wake of Afterlife with Archie's success.) Loosely patterned after the EC and other horror comics of the fifties, it was an anthology title hosted--for its first two issues--by everyone's favourite Teenage Witch, written and drawn by regulars from Archie's creative team: writer Frank Doyle and, in the stories excerpted here, Dan DeCarlo and Rudy Lapick on art.

If nothing else, this horror host is easier on the eyes than EC's GhouLunatics )
