The Collector “Profits of Doom” photostrip story

by M.I.K.

 

the collector

Paul at The Cobwebbed Room has posted a really cool little Alan Moore scripted story from a 1982 issue of Eagle comic. Coincidentally, I was thinking of posting a Collector story too, but the one he’s scanned is way better and rather appropriate for visitors to this site.

The Mammoth Book Of Best Horror Comics (edited by Peter Normanton)

by M.I.K.

 

cover

The cover of The Mammoth Book Of Best Horror Comics, claims that it contains “OVER 50 OF THE GREATEST HORROR COMICS AND GRAPHIC SHORT STORIES EVER PRODUCED”.

It doesn’t.

Something being the “best” or “greatest”, is of course, a matter of opinion, (and there is some good stuff in here), but that doesn’t alter the fact that whether you agree with that part of the claim on the cover or not, there are only 48 stories in the book. This is probably a genuine mistake on the part of the publisher, but it’s an odd one to make, especially since all the stories are quite clearly listed in the contents section. Stranger still, if you google the title of this book, you’ll find it on sale alongside a picture of what is obviously an earlier version of the cover which claims it contains “60” stories. 

Hitler's Head

This isn’t the only mistake in the book. Two of the stories have their pages printed in the wrong order, which rather messes up the structure of the tales.

However, these are just minor niggles, as overall this is a very well put together and varied collection. The Book is divided into four sections, each devoted to a different era of horror comics and each preceded by a small chapter on the decade in question, all written by the editor, Peter Normanton. Normanton also provides a foreword and notes on each story. He’s no stranger to horror publications himself, having edited the horror fanzine  From The Tomb for the last eight years.

The Hand Of Glory

The stories are reprinted in black and white and while a few pages of colour wouldn’t have gone amiss, the reproduction is good enough. There’s plenty here to satisfy anyone’s craving for horror. 

Overall rating 7.5/10

The Graaveswellers

If you like this volume, as I’m sure you will, The Mammoth Book Of Zombie Comics is out in October and The Mammoth Book Of Best Crime Comics is out in a few days time.

Beyond the Rave

by Ghastly McNasty

I like the idea of using the Theatre of Terror as…. a theatre! and showing comic strips from Scream on a regular basis. We can also use the site to show any new comic strips we or anyone else makes. I’ll get in touch with whoever runs this Action site http://www.sevenpennynightmare.co.uk and see if they want to ‘play’ some of their comic scans on this site as well like a ‘guest contributor’

I also love Italian Spiderman. He is officially the man. I like the idea of ‘playing’ things in the theatre. Hopefully it will encourage people to log on and get their weekly hit of whatever the hell we are currently ‘showing’ on the Theatre of Terror.

With all this in mind i’m going to start showing the new(ish) Hammer film ‘Beyond the Rave’ in weekly installments. I’ve not seen it myself because i dont seem to have the time, but maybe i will if i can watch it in snippets on this site.

Check out the trailer below:
