[Comic Review] Haunted Horror #1

Haunted Horrors #1Seeing comics out of the 1950’s brings back some childhood memories. Now, keep in mind, I wasn’t even an itch back in the 50’s. What I remember was in the 1980’s and early 90’s. Thanks to a little show on H.B.O. entitled Tales From the Crypt, the weird and horror tales from that bygone era had a bit of a resurgence.

So, when I saw that IDW and Yoe Books was releasing, or rather re-issuing, comics from that era and style, I just had to have it.

Just as cliché, cheesy and often morally orientated, Haunted Horror #1 brings us face to face with the past. Stories of revenge, murder and deceit, as well as possible futures for humanity fill its pages. If you have a thing for zombies, spider-women and aliens, this is definitely your bag. And, even if you don’t, if you haven’t experienced this time’s form of creepy tales, you need to pick this up.

With stories like The Wage-Earners, The Constant Eye and The Vengeful Curse, you can’t go wrong. So pick up a copy, and follow along with good ol’ Forelock the Warlock…you may just love it!

Rating: 10/10 Gingered Digits.

Reasoning: Reprint of great stories, cheesy and delightful, morally indulgent, horror from bygone era, classic artwork.
