I remember loving Horror comics growing up. Back when you could get a comic for under a buck.
I used to collect Mystery, The Unexpected, The Witching Hour, The many ghosts of Dr Graves
AH gone are the days when mothers would happily buy their kids comics filled with ghosts, zombies, blood and murder...sold on the same rack right next to Archie and Spiderman
The best part of the comics was the cover art.
since this site keeps fucking up my posts ill try and recap what my original post here was...
always been a fan of horror comics since i learned to read, especially the EC comics. i used to buy them in the dollar stores in pre-mixed bags to restore the ones i had lost as a kid.
have you checked out the essential reprints by marvel? there is also a subset of those called essential horror now. also DC has similar reprints called showcase i believe.
and one of my favorite gifts of all time was when Maven gave me a hardcover set of EC comics several years ago. very kick ass set.
