The Ghastly Covers of The Haunt Of Fear

The Haunt of Fear was a bi-monthly horror anthology comic that was published by EC Comics, from 1950 to 1954.  Like its sister publication, Tales From The Crypt, The Haunt of Fear featured stories and artwork that were considered to be so controversial and so dangerous that Congress took it upon itself to investigate.  Despite the fact that The Haunt of Fear was one of their most popular titles, EC Comics canceled the series as a result of the bad publicity.

Despite only lasting 28 issues, The Haunt of Fear remains a favorite of collectors and has been cited as an influence by a countless number of horror writers and filmmakers.  Below are a few of the covers of the The Haunt of Fear, all of which were done by the artist Graham Ingels (who simply signed his work as “Ghastly.”)  Remember that these covers were responsible for juvenile delinquency in the 50s so look at them at your own risk.

Here are the ghastly covers of The Haunt of Fear:

  1. It’s good to see these again. My brother used to collect the EC one along with the regular Marvel/DC work. As a kid, most of those creeped me out (with good reason), and the artwork is awesome.
