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, from World of Fantasy #5, it's "She Stands in the Shadows"!
Next, "The Torture Chamber" from Astonishing #12!
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!
And an extra story this time, it's "Happiness House" from Ghostly Tales #120!
Tomorrow: It's grab-bag time, with comics that don't fit the other themes!
