PostSubject: Horror comics   Fri Mar 08, 2013 4:39 am

Anyone read these? I don'thave any of the EC comics stuff. I did find a copy of TALES OF TERROR from an antique store, from Eqlipse Comics.

I've downloaded a lot off the net. Some no longer sold because of the backlash from decades ago.

I've read most of the MYSTERIES! WEIRD AND STRANGE comics. A bunch of Canadian horror comics I found from Superior Publishers.

Issue 10 has a couple decent, yet forgettable stories, one a demon infested swamp, and the other of a murdered woman's ghost. But two others stand out. The best of this issue I think is THE HAUNTED HAND. A writer buys a killer's hand from an auction, and it of course comes to life. The final story, PLANET WITHOUT DEATH, is strange. A man dying of some unknown disease travels to Cholors, a green planet where no one can die. Basically a lover's triangle between the man, his human wife, and a green lettuce lady he brings back. Feels rushed at times.

Issue 7's THE SEA GOBLINS is the only one I read so far that is for sure set in Canada. Takes place in British Columbia, and there's some Mounties. Sea Goblins come ashore to find female mates.

'Tales of the unexpected' i have some old issues of those' i don't have any of the one

"Spawn' which granted is a current comic but it's a horror comic pretty much. a good one too. i haven't bought an issue in years so i have no idea how good or bad it is now though

I love old school EC comics. My roomate has several old issues of tales from the crypt. i own every season of the tv show. i still need to see the movies that are from the show but i have seen the 70s film and the valut of horror film. Spawn is one of my favorite comic book heros ever its sad that his live action film sucked. I loved the HBO show though

the 1st Tales from the crypt film from the 70's is a great film. the 2nd one though sucked ass.

as for the 90's films Demon Knight is a bad ass film. you'll love it. but Bordello of Blood is a piece of shit.

i haven't seen the 3rd Crypt film they made a couple years back i believe. and i doubt you'll remember it but they had the Tales from the crypt cartoon for i think ABC? in the 90's. that was cheesy as hell but i enjoyed it. it was on only for i think 1 or 2 seasons. it is what it is. it's i think called 'Tales from the crypt keeper.

check them out on you tube.

i do recall one episode and oddly it gave me nightmares and before you laugh let me just add that this was the plot it's about i believe 2 kids who use a magnafy glass & sorry about my shitty spelling. anyways they kill bugs with it on a summer day. anyways something happens i forget what and they end up being shrunk and they are than the bugs and

the reason it gave me nightmares was cause i was thinking about that episode the entire day for some reason or other. and i kept thinking on how what if that had been me? and i guess it just blended into my dreams or something.


and no cartoons don't normally do that to me. though the one in "The Twilight Zone' movie did for years as a kid do the same. he he

I really like the TALES and VAULT movies. I'd actually go as far to say I like them more than the entire HBO series and their movie spinoffs. DEMON KNIGHT and BORDELLO OF BLOOD are decent. I like TALES FROM THE CRYPT PRESENTS: RITUAL most I think. It's actually a remake of the film "I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE" and is not based on anything EC Comics related.

I like the CRYPT-KEEPER cartoon as well. Got the first two seasons on DVD.

Hope to someday get a EC Archive collection of the comics. I don't buy things offline anymore, and stores never seem to carry them.

oh i love the HBO show. they have some damn good episodes such as the one with Christopher Reeve. or hell even Jon Lovtiz. that's a great one. he's actually pretty good in it. Michael J. Fox. Larry Drake remake of the story about Santa Claus is great. in fact i prefer it over the original. something i don't normally say.


a LOT of that has to do with the fact is i saw that many times before the 70's films. and also because i've always loved "Larry Drake' like Dr. Giggles i think is a great film. and i'm really surprised no sequel came from it to be honest.

I used to read alot of the "Gespenster-Geschichten" (engl: Ghost/Phantom Stories) - Comics as a kid. They were really awesome. You just couldn't walk past comics with covers like these without wanting to buy them.

Hey! That first one right there! It's a John Sinclair comic??! I used to read novels featuring that character when I was a kid! I didn't know there were comics too! The books were great, he's a Scotland Yard Inspector who specializes in paranormal phenomenons: he fights monsters and demons all over the world with various tools like an egyptian cross, a whip, silver bullets etc.

Niiice. Smile I'll try to find some of those comics.
