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?

That's funny. I had the exact same experience when my Dad took me for haircuts and he would do some errands on a Saturday. It went from when I was 8 or 9 until I was 12, or so. The barber had the GREATEST comic book collection in the world. He had everything including stacks of Weird, Eerie, Tales from the Crypt, Terror Tales, etc. I would wait for an hour or more without making a peep. I was totally immersed in the comics. However, I never did kick him in the balls. It wasn't that kind of place.

Re: Horror Comics

I just found out that Frankenstein Alive, Alive will be continued with Kelley Jones on art duties:

IDWs Big Damn Book WonderCon Panel - Bleeding Cool News And Rumors

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Re: Horror Comics

In the late 60s, there did not seem to be that many horror oriented comics.
In 1970 (I think) DC resurrected the old Spectre character, and he was quite different from Doctor Strange.

Re: Horror Comics

There was a fair bunch, mostly starting in the mid to late period. Creepy and Eerie (Vampirella joining at the end of the decade), House Of Mystery, House Of Secrets, several ghost focused Charlton Comics, Eerie Publications (more difficult to find though). There would have been a few underground comix.

Dell/Gold Key was mostly very tame but Ghost Stories and Tales From The Tomb were early 60s and allowed to be nastier because they weren't scrutinized by the comics code because their 50s comics were so tame they were one of the only publishers that didn't attract censorship.
Their others were Twilight Zone, Ripley's Believe it or Not, Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery.

Marvel started a few titles that were mixed with reprints from the 50s, mostly pretty tame.

Mort Cinder in Argentina, Kazuo Umezu in Japan. Probably some comics in the Philippines.

Other spooky 60s DC heroes being Deadman, Creeper and Phantom Stranger.

Re: Horror Comics

This is a good online one that I wish they would just release physically.

Someone once devoted at least one thread to Junji Ito years ago on this site, I'd look for it. Ito is an adept at the craft to be sure.

Also check out the works of Tsutomu Nihei, particularly Blame!. Not necessarily straight horror per se, but definitely gory and visceral and replete with grotesque bodily transformations. On Ligottian grounds, there is an emphasis on looming and deeply unorthodox living architecture and bizarre replications of the human form.

Blame - Wikipedia!

On the other hand, I think Berserk by Kentaro Miura would be of some mental solace to one of schizophrenic rather than depressive mindset. Think of the Dark Souls / Bloodborne games (which were inspired by him) mixed with some of the emotions present in Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.
