cyberghostface: (Right One)

In the old days of S_D, I used to post multiple stories from the old EC comics (mostly horror but some of their other genres as well) as well as stories from the Warren magazines (Creepy and Eerie).

Given the 1/3 rule, I stopped because if your average story is five pages, then that leaves little to post.

That being said, for Halloween, I figured I might post some selections from EC and Warren. So I any of you have any stories that you would like to see? Anything that I posted from the days of old, or a favorite that you think others should see, or something that you heard about but never saw? Again, I can only post 1/3 so keep that in mind. The more elaborate stories might be harder for me to share.

Holy shit this dude has to be like Superman if he can straight up rip a woman's face off with his hands.

I remember a story where a guy meets a woman at a mansion and he finds out she was dead at the end.

I have that one! :-) It's in the 1985 EC Classics NÂș 1; the origin story of the Crypt Creeper is in that one too, and he mentions a previous story with the origin of the Old Witch. Could we see that one please? And was there also a story for the Vault Keeper?

Oh, I know one that would be very topical! The one about the orphans who wanted a jack-o-lantern.

Just how dumb do you have to be when you can't tell the difference between a mask and a piece of living skin? I mean, they can make awfully convincing masks, but they can't make them WARM, for cryin' out loud, especially not back then.

Hrrm, that's actually the origin of a Batman villain that's only appeared... twice, I think? He was called No Face.

Basically his dad was a wealthy but abusive prick, and one day to get his attention the kid glued one of his mum's antique masks onto his face.

The dad, annoyed at his son for messing about with the expensive mask, used all of his strength to rench it off, but it took most of the flesh off his son's face witth it.

I don't have a specific story in mind, but does anyone remember an old Warren magazine with a cover featuring a John Carter-style warlord seated on a throne and a buxom blonde woman leaning over his shoulder from behind? I'm pretty sure I've seen it advertised in old issues of Creepy or Eerie way back when, but I don't think it's actually a back issue of one of those two magazines. (The cover painting is vaguely Frazetta-esque, but not one of his actual works that I can find.)

Could you please repost the EC comics you cross-posted last year from InsaneJournal? The only one that's visible is "The October Game." Everything else has just...vanished.
