View Full Version : Horror Comics

When I was a kid, my mom used to drop me and my brother off at the barber shop inside the Acme store and then do her shopping while we got our haircuts. We usually had time to kill, so we would read the comics he left out. He usually had horror comics, thankfully. Over the years I am sure I read a ton of them. I went to this barber from the time I was a little kid until almost my teens. He is also the first barber I went to. On my first visit, I apparently kicked him in the groin with those hard wooden soled toddler shoes and dropped him to his knees. My dad tipped him five dollars. But that is neither here nor there. This was my introduction to EC comics and others. I still occasionally pick up an inexpensive reprint on eBay just for fun. Have any of you read any horror comics?

I enjoyed reading horror comics as a kid, my favorites being Ghosts and The Witching Hour from DC. I really liked the House of Mystery and Weird Mystery Tales too. Comics were my introduction to the horror genre for which I'm most grateful. While doing some spring cleaning a couple of years ago, I unearthed about fifty or so old horror comics which I couldn't resist thumbing through. They definitely brought back some great memories. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to try to find a new home for them as I've run out of space in my own abode.
