Welcome on this blog full of information about Horror and Mystery Comics, and offcourse the comics.

Horror comics are comic books, graphic novels, black-and-white comics magazines, and manga focusing on horror fiction. Horror comic books reached a peak in the late 1940s through the mid-1950s, when concern over content and the imposition of the self-censorship Comics Code Authority contributed to the demise of many titles and the toning down of others. Black-and-white horror-comics magazines, which did not fall under the Code, flourished from the mid-1960s through the early 1980s from a variety of publishers. Mainstream American color comic books experienced a horror resurgence in the 1970s, following a loosening of the Code. While the genre has had greater and lesser periods of popularity, it occupies a firm niche in comics as of the 2010s.

The first dedicated horror comic books appear to be Gilberton Publications’ Classic Comics #13 (Aug. 1943), with its full-length adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and Avon Publications’ anthology Eerie #1 (Jan. 1947), the first horror comic with original content. The first horror-comics series is the anthology Adventures into the Unknown, premiering in 1948 from American Comics Group, initially under the imprint B&I Publishing.

You can access the information and comics through the sidebar.

The comics are mostly in packages from around 100mb, inside these rar-packages you will find the comics in cbr format.

You can view the comics with any cbr-reader like CDisplay or ComicRack.

I did not scan the comics myself only collect them from various sites on the internet, internet archive, Usenet Newsgroups and torrents. plaatje1
So thanks to all the scanners and uploaders.
This blog is purely ment to preserve the comics and to enjoy them, no financial meanings are involved, if you like the comics buy them as long as they are availabe, because nothing can beat the feeling of reading a real comic.

If you find something wrong (downloads, numbering, information) please let me know so that i can correct the error.

Thanks to the following sites for the information :

    After writing my book on the intricacies visible in the brain and sympathetic ganglia, I like to slum it reading comics on my Tablet.

    Shock SuspenStories is by far the best in this genre – superior drawing and powerful storylines. And I’m very glad I found them here.

    Hi, your blogs are incredible thanks but there are a heck of a lot of sfv file checksum errors – maybe because they are zipped in double folders? They can be fixed by unzipping and removing the error file and duplicate folder.

      Thanks for the comment, did you extract the rar’s and read the indivual cbr files with a reader ? I hardly come across these errors when i check the individual files.

    Yes – I still like to use cd display 1.8 and I only have this on your files at the moment – I have to click on every pages warning before I can view! (example Atlas Battle 1). I can’t see how it’s my new WD drive – I just lost my entire digital life on my Samsung (Seagate in disguise I’ve since discovered) including some rare old stuff that can’t be found anywhere online now. Just delete my comments when you’ve finished with them!
