Re: editted

I think the one I used to get was Weird Tales. The story I remember most was the shapechanger that would turn into a giant rat and kill people. One day he picked on the wrong guy...who turned into a giant cat and killed the rat.

Re: editted

^^^^  lol  gotta love those Horror Comic twist endings !!!!

Re: editted

Love em!!! big_smile

Re: editted

I love horror comics as well. Nice thread Mistress!

Some of my favorites are the Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and Leatherface comics. I like Blade too. smile

Re: editted

And I absolutely LOVE the covers you posted! big_smile

Re: editted

I was "persuaded" by my parents at the age of around 16 to relinquish my entire collection of comics (had quite a few "Weird Tales" and "Creepy" that my Nana had received in her thrift store and handed down) and pro wrestling magazines (the really bloody ones from the early 80's!) to the local library or some such.
Ugh. To think I actually bought into the idea that I might really grow up some day and not find these still of amusement.  lol

edit: not to mention their monetary value.  Double ugh!

Re: editted

Hell yes! Some great comics in this post. The 2nd book cover Weird Tales is by the Master of Macabe Bernie Wrightson. Google him. Amazing!

Also Monsters Attack! I remember that as a little kid! WOW. Total flashback seeing that cover.

Love it. I also draw comics so this post is a little dear to my bloody beating heart.

Re: editted

I've started a series of threads called "Comics You Should Be Reading" about modern horror comics. I've done two so far with more to come!:D

Ah, those were the days.  Mephisto was the man back in the day (although I haven't read a comic book in years, so I don't know how he is anymore).

Re: editted

After relinquishing my collection in my teens I pretty much snubbed comics for many a year
(which is kind of absurd considering I always wanted to illustrate one myself LOL)

It wasn't until Glenn Danzig came out with his Verotik line of adult horror themed comics
in the early '90s that my interest in them returned.  I'm not a big collector, but I do have most of the Verotik line
and a few other prized possessions.
I now follow quite a few blogs that chronicle horror comics from all over the globe from the late 60s and 70s.
Pretty amazing what was considered acceptable entertainment for children and young adults back in the "before times" LOL

Re: editted

Thanks for bringing back some great memories, Mistress. I collected comics when I was a kid/teen and 2 of my favs, other than the super hero ones were, Creepy & The Witching Hour. And yes, some of the covers on them were so damn cool. Thanks for also posting some of the actual comic covers! Wish I still had them. They would be worth a small fortune now.

Re: editted

great thread!
agreed that the cover art was a huge attraction- made me decide to knock some dust off the shelves to show the covers of some from my collection.
not many vintage, mostly 80s/early 90s.
there is a comic shop in town with a huge selection of the UNEXPECTED, however he knows what he has and the box is only opened for cash in hand customers

here are a few gems-

Re: editted

wow !!!!  you got some GREAT comics there !!!

Re: editted

thanks- i collected them pretty seriously for about 2 years, and then gave up on it within the last year or so

Re: editted

Innovation comics had a nightmare on elm street comic in the 90s that i enjoyed that tied up all the loose ends from the movies that involved Alice , her dream child Jacob , Nancy Thompson & Neil Gordon (the doctor from part 3) .Shame that the art inside was so inconsistent.

Re: editted

Mistress should get off to this: two of my "prized possessions" are Clive Barker's Book Of The Damned 1 & 2 (A Hellraiser Companion)
If you can find em anywhere snatch 'em up - very cool.
I see mac's sporting the novelization I believe, which is equally cool and something I missed.

Re: editted

I got the Jason vs leatherface mini series.
