If you like the older comics, I searched any couldn't find anything really site wise. There's a blog I read that posts some older stuff but only a story or two at a time, not the whole issue. You might like it: thehorrorsofitall.blogspot.com/
Thanks. I went to the Paradox site, and got a bunch of the Tales From The Crypt comics. Checked out the Horrors of it All place too, and that was pretty cool. I actually emailed the owner asking if he would add a link to the forum on his blog. Haven't heard back yet though.

Getting him to add the site would help a lot I think. I went and checked out some of the link he has on the site and this place would fit right in. Hope he adds us.
Have you thought about a place for banners? Not just the little blocks in the affiliate place but, like full size banners? Some may be more inclined to trade links if we had a space for that. Just thinking...
Just to update, the site I used to go read all my horror comics on has been shut down for good, apparently by the FBI. Turns out the guy that was running it got into some serious trouble over copyright infringement. A lot of the comics he posted were old and out of print, but he was also posting new comics that folks could read for free instead of buying, and I guess that doesn't sit well with the publishers, lol.
Too bad. That was a great site. They had everything.
I remember reading EC horror mags as a young teen. I always used to buy them when I was on holidays [vacation]. They used to sell them in newsagents on a revolving stand! I would spend ages browsing through them.
I remember being fascinated by all the amazing stuff you could order, like X-ray specs etc lol ;D
Yeah, I used to read Vampirella, loved Creepy and Eerie too back in the day, but my favorites were always the short horror stories like in Tales From The Crypt or House Of Mystery.
There was one in a Tales comic, this guy goes town to town selling these weight loss pills. Guaranteed to make you lose weight. He sells the people on it, and once he has his money, he bolts. After he leaves, even the heaviest people are becoming skin and bones and dying. Finally an autopsy is done and they realize the pills he was selling contained a tapeworm larvae. At the end he's hunted by a mob that's onto him and runs into a vault in the cemetery for cover. Then he hears a noise from the casket in the vault, and reads the inscription, and it's the first person he sold the pills to. He lifts the lid(I know right???) and giant tapeworms get him. The end.
That was about as bad ass as bad ass was for a horror comic when I was young. The art by Graham Ingels and Johnny Craig was paired perfectly with the story every time, so you can imagine how good it was in this story.
