Horror Comics #1

horror
Horror comics, known in the 1960s and most of the 1970s as "Mystery Comics," have long been a popular genre of comics, all but lost these days!

We start off with the relatively tame "Deathless Mortal" from Skeleton Hand in Secrets of the Supernatural #1!

As you saw last week, Marvel's Venus was sort of half-superhero/half- romance book, but that didn't last... check out "The End of the World" from issue #11!

Next, it's "The Specter's Revenge" from Chilling Tales of Terror, although I'm pretty sure this was originally printed in an ACG mag in the 1960s!
