The Monster in the Maze!

Continuing on with the March 1954 issue of Adventures into Darkness #13, "The Monster in the Maze!", illustrated by Gene Fawcette, is ferocious fun, but a little on the short side, so I added the "Escape from Terrorland" maze (which I believe I may have actually posted here at THOIA in the past), as well as the 2-page text story "The Lonely Place" by John Marvin. Yes, it comes to my attention that some of you actually like and read these things... I'm posting it mainly for you full issue completists, and because it does have a couple of spooky cool illustrations to boot! One more story to go, see ya in few! PS: And be sure to see the last post about our multiple Rondo Award nominations this year in case you missed it-- if you dig THE HORRORS OF IT ALL and our HAUNTED HORROR comic book series, then please give us a vote! :)

I've lost track, but for the _____ year in a row now, THE HORRORS OF IT ALL has once again been nominated in the BEST HORROR BLOG category. We never win, but we're always thrilled to see our name in such fine horror blogger company. If you feel the urge to throw us a vote, we'd very much appreciate it! Also nominated this year is HAUNTED HORROR for BEST HORROR COMIC! How do we stack up against the others in this category? If you love reading HH as much as we love putting it together for you, let your voice be heard loud and proud! And while Forelock, Madame Clizia, and Mr. Karswell's names aren't to be found among the other BEST HORROR HOST names in that category, if you feel like writing us in it would really make us smile!

Satan's Pawn

Start your week (and month) off with a stabby piece of insanity, it's another tantalizing tale of evil from the March 1954 issue of Adventures into Darkness #13. GCD credits Jack Sparling on art duty with a question mark... and hey, we've rounded out this post with a few hot, half-page bonuses too. Lots more monsters, murder, and mayhem from this issue coming up all this week-- stay tombed!

Feast of the Ghouls / The Haunted Hotel

Not to be confused with A.C. Hollingsworth's Ghouls Feast at Midnight (click HERE for a second helping if you're still starving later), todays morbid mouthful from Sekowsky / Peppe first appeared in the March 1954 issue of Adventures into Darkness #13. Surprisingly, I haven't posted much from this issue here over the years, even though it's one of the oldest rags in my collection, so don't be surprised if we see a few more from it over the next few posts. Sound good? Yes, yes, you can stop smacking your lips now-- ugh! Included side order: an Ambrose Bierce, one-page quickie illustrated by Gene Fawcett... Standard was always good for interesting comic book filler such as this.

This Ship is Doomed!

Many of you seem to enjoy these Horrors on the High Seas posts, and we've got another one sailing your way now from the March - April 1952 issue of Witchcraft #1 from Avon. No art credit listed at GCD, though I'm fairly certain this is Harry Lazarus...

Carnival of Death / Whip of Death!

Due to the west coast seaport shut-down, Haunted Horror #15 will not be in stores today according to Previewsworld, --dead in the water, so to speak (along with everything else from IDW this week!) We will keep you informed on any new developments. In the meantime, we'll keep the death rolling along with a couple of screamers from the June 1952 issue of Black Cat Mystery #36.
