Haunted Horror #34
Various (this is a compilation of a number of different stories from different comic books)
This is #34 in a very beloved series that I get on a regular basis, “The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics”. What they’ve done here is take stories from horror comics, mostly of the 50s, and bring them back in a bi-monthly issued series.
The tales in each issue are usually good but this time, I felt they were exceptional. We have cannibals, vampires, incredibly disgusting skin growths that talk and kill, sea monsters, serial killers and more!
I love these vintage comic book stories. The artwork is wicked old school and the tales are edgy and creepy. I can see how these would have spooked many kids. I can also see why parents of that time might have been a little apprehensive about letting their children read such horrific tales. Back then, these would have been considered anything but desirable to most parents.
Still, to me, they are enjoyable. Although, there’s far too many tales in one issue to tell about each story. If you are looking for a good comic book read, I highly recommend picking this up.
