In the unregulated era before the Comics Code Authority forced the industry to self-censor in fear of inciting juvenile delinquency, lawless and raw pre-Code horror comics of the early 1950s reigned supreme. Exhibiting an ageless quality that’s just prime for reprinting, the unearthing of this lost world of vintage comics can only increase exposure, as devoted collectors and diligent editors resurrect and restore the rarest of tales and art. Now, Atom Age horror comics enthusiasts are able to enjoy an assortment of stories frowned upon by the likes of Dr. Fredric Wertham, for an affordable price.
IDW and Yoe Books continue to uncover and promote those contraband horror comics pulverized by bureaucratic inquisition, with their latest collection of re-mastered works in Haunted Horror #3. READ MORE
Horror comics were in their heyday in the late 1940s until the Comics Code Authority was formed in 1954, placing relentless restrictions on the publication of horror-related material. Leading up to the CCA, parents and academics took a stand against horror comics, making it difficult for kids to find these tales of terror. Thanks to the co-editorial team of Craig Yoe and Steve “Karswell” Banes, that brought you “ZOMBIES: The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics”, these classic tales of terror are being reprinted in a new bi-monthly series titled, Haunted Horrors.

A. Winter, and more! Below we’ve got the full story from legends Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, “Slaughter-House”.
