    A Frenchman falls in love with a female ventriloquist - until he discovers her horrible secret.


  8. Horror Harbor (7p, Iger Shop)
    Reprinted from Haunted Thrills #8 (Ajax, Apr 1953)
    While staying at a cliffside house on the Cornish shore, a couple encounters a crazy woman living in an offshore shipwreck.



As you can imagine, Eerie reportedly got in legal hot water over the title of this magazine and changed it to Tales of Voodoo with the next issue. The cover welcomes readers to the "old crone's crypt" and an unnamed horror host (presumably said old crone) introduces the issue on the inside front cover. In terms of content, Experiment In Terror is the clear standout here to me. In this delightfully wicked tale, a misshapen gnome of a scientist is convinced that the will to survive is stronger than love. He finds a young couple in need of money and gets them to agree to his twisted plan. He will lock them in a cage and starve them until one of them admits that hunger is stronger than love. The couple is determined to prove the professor wrong (plus, they really need that money) and the professor THINKS he gets the last laugh when they prove him right by turning into rapacious animals. Until, that is, he gets stuck in the bars of their cage and the pair chews his legs off. Sick? Yep. Wonderful? You bet.

  8. Your Coffin is Waiting, Sir (7p, Iger Shop)

    An undertaker begins stalking the man he blames for his daughter's death.

For whatever reason, the first two issues of Tales of Voodoo include no masthead listing company personnel. As with its predecessor, Tales From the Crypt, one story in this issue stands out for me - Bloody Mary, a Bad Seed tale in which a seemingly sweet little girl literally gets away with murder

    A shoe company employee visits a cemetery to spit on the grave of the company's recently deceased former owner, but finds out the hard way that one should never curse a corpse

  8. Hair Yee-eeee (6p, Steve Ditko and ?, script: Bruce Hamilton)

    Reprinted from Strange Fantasy #9 (Ajax, Dec 1953)
    A young man's body is taken over by his living, ravenous hair.

A pretty solid issue. I enjoyed most every story with the exception of Congo Terror. Mask of the Monster is an interesting story in that the comic book editor in the story is female and Ajax/Farrell had one of the few female editors in the business - Ruth Roche (who'd also worked at Superior and Gilberton, on issues from which Ajax/Farrell reprinted material). Whether or not the writer in the story is modeled after an Ajax writer is unknown. My favorite of the lot, however, is the wonderfully bizarre (some would say downright silly) Hair Yee-eeee. The script by Bruce Hamilton (who also wrote Stretching Things) tells the story of Pat, who finally decides to get his long hair cut after the other kids begin calling him a sissy. As soon as the barber makes the first cut, however, Pat lets out a scream of pain and realizes his hair is alive. As he matures to young adulthood, he sprouts hair all over his body, putting a damper on his love life (one date cuts things off abruptly saying, perhaps unaware of the connotation, that she doesn't want to "…hold hands with a boy who has hair on his palms.") As Pat's hair grows, so does his appetite, but no matter how much he eats, he LOSES weight (his hair is feeding on him, you see). Disgusted, he heads to the mountains to live as a hermit, shedding his clothing and turning into a giant furball. His exile doesn't last long, as he returns to civilization to slake his thirst for human flesh. He goes on a murderous rampage until police chase him (it??) into a warehouse where they douse it with hair remover (!!!) reducing him to a pile of dandruff. Steve Ditko drew some of the panels for the story (a classmate from the Cartoonists and Illustrators School may have done some of the rest).

3. Tales of Voodoo v2n2, May 1969, 52pp, $0.35



  1. Hammer of Evil (5p, Iger Shop)
    Reprinted from Voodoo #16 (Ajax, June 1954)

    A man decides to use a booby trap to rid himself of his overweight wife.

  5. Skeletons Have Secrets (7p, Iger Shop)
    Reprinted from Haunted Thrills #1 (Ajax, June 1952). Originally printed in Ellery Queen #2 (Superior, July 1949) as Terror Tide
    A reporter investigates a series of strange deaths at an island manor said to be caused by demons from the sea.

  6. Drums of Doom (7p, Matt Baker)

    Reprinted from Voodoo #4 (Ajax, Nov 1952). Originally printed in South Seas Comics.

    Adana the jungle girl travels to an island to try to steal a magic drum called the drum of life.


  7. Witch's Brand (8p, Iger Shop)
    Reprinted from Strange Fantasy #5 (Ajax, Apr 1953)
    A woman becomes a witch after wearing a locket that she inherited from an ancestor killed for witchcraft three centuries before.

Hammer of Evil is a solid story, and one that bears more than a passing resemblance Warren's Bruce Jones/Berni Wrightson classic Jenifer. The story also contains a hint of misogyny. In one scene, the scientists punishes the cave woman he has revived for killing and eating his dog only to have her fall to his feet in worship ("She expects to be beaten! She LIKES it!" he marvels). When he begins to pull her around by the hair, she is in ecstasy. In another story in the issue, One Very Wide Coffin, a man gets sick of his lazy, overweight, domineering wife and decides to kill her. Such subtle sexism was a frequent theme of pre-code horror where wives were depicted as shrewish nags who always got their comeuppance in the end.

  1. The Blood Blossom - Reprinted from Weird v1n12

    A 17th-century witch is freed from her grave by a Nazi bomb and begins to fulfill her curse.

  8. The Ghostly Guillotine - Reprinted from Weird v2n4

After a promising start, things begin going downhill. As was often the case when Eerie printed stories from Ajax/Farrells post-code titles, the version of Locked in Time here has been altered from the version that appeared in Midnight (adding bats, ghostly figures etc) but it is not the pre-code version. It is more like a version halfway between the pre-code version and the code-approved version.


5. Tales of Voodoo v2n4, Sep 1969, 52pp, $0.35



  1. The Dead Went Marching By - Reprint of Trumpet of Doom, Weird v1n10

  2. Murder on the Moor - Reprinted from Weird v1n11

  3. Coward's Curse - Reprinted from Weird v1n10

  4. Doomed - Reprinted from Weird v1n10
  5. When the Sea Goes Dry - Reprinted from Weird v2n3


  6. The Terror of Akbar - Reprinted from Weird v1n10

  7. Corpses of the Jury - Reprinted from Weird v2n1

The decline reaches a nadir with a first for Eerie - an issue consisting entirely of material that had already been printed in earlier issues (though they did retitle the first story - a practice that would become rampant in later issues). Another question is why they began reprinting material when there were still a number of Ajax stories they hadn't gotten to yet. Perhaps they lacked the original art for those stories.

    Rework of Murder Mansion, Witches Tales #6 (Harvey, Nov 1951)

    A honeymooning couple spend the night in a haunted mansion, where the wife is transformed into a murderous witch.

For reasons unknown, Tales of Voodoo seems to have undergone a four-month gap between this issue and the last with the expected November 1969 issue not appearing. Only three new stories here but one of them is a doozy. Chic Stone's unbelievable Voodoo Terror. Blood Bath is more well known and The Slimy Mummy drew praise from Stephen Sennitt but, for my money, this is Stone's best - a story unsurpassed in sheer brutality and gore. The splash panel has to be seen to be believed.

The Slimy Snakeman is one of my all-time favorites, probably because it in one of the handful of issues I had as a kid (and because it involves one of my favorite themes - the sideshow).

The art for The Witch's Pit looks like it could be the work of Cirilo Munoz. On the other hand, it is so close to Joe Certa's original that I am still not sure it wasn't just reprinted and altered.

With this month's issues, Eerie begins printing text stories and articles along with its comics. The printing of text stories was standard in color comics as a way of qualifying for discount postage rates but I don’t know if this is why Eerie did so or not. In any event, the stories (like most everything else at Eerie) were not original. Most of them were either reprints of 19th century classics or stories culled from the pages of the pulps. Titles were almost always changed and authorship credit rarely given. Eerie also printed a number of non-fiction articles dealing with the unexplained. Many, if not all, of them were of recent vintage and may have been original material.

The Faba who did the cover is the same Faba who did covers for Skywald. The woman on the cover is nearly identical (other than the hair color) to the woman who appears on the cover of Skywald's Scream #4 (art by Villanova) while the werewolf looks like the one on the cover of Eerie #48 (art by Manuel Sanjulian - thanks to Mike Howlett for this info) If this is the same Faba, the cover art may have been a Skywald reject purchased by Myron Fass.

Vampire provides a rare example of a story that Eerie reworked that had previously been reworked by another pre-code publisher (in this case Charlton reworking a Harvey story).
