As promised in the table of contents, this month's edition of "Comic Reading Library" is an all-horror comics edition!
The first selection this time around is "Nightmare of Doom!", which I kind of teased a bit for the cover of the first issue of the new Random Acts of Geekery in August, so I figured I'd better deliver this time! It was featured as the lead story in Chamber of Chills #15, and was penciled and inked by Al Avision, although the writer is not identified. This story was reprint several times, in Tales of Voodoo V5#5, Terror Tales V7#1, Terrors of Dracula V2#1, Weird Vampire Tales V5#2, and finally in IDW's Haunted Horror #16.
Our next feature is a Simon & Kirby classic (or at least, a classic from their studio) from Black Magic #12... "Contact!" was the second story in the book, and was the cover feature. Art was by Bill Draut, and it was reprinted in Black Magic Comics #5.
Next, we have "Terror of the Deep," which was printed in black-and-white in Chilling Tales of Horror #2... but originally appeared in Mister Mystery #14. Art was by Ellis Eringer.
Next up, "The Phantom Crew," from Ghostly Tales #65... how could I not include this Jim Aparo-drawn tale, written by Norm Di Pluhm (an obvious pseudonym, but one that hasn't been discovered for whom)?
Next up, we have "The Island Vision," printed in Mystery Comics Digest #9, which originally appeared in The Twilight Zone #11, with art by Frank Bolle.
I can't resist also including "The Aliens and the Captain," which was in the same digest! This was apparently a new story for this issue, and was written by Don Glut with art by Dan Spiegle.
Next, it's "The Resurrected Head" from Worlds of Fear #4! The art on this has been identified as being by Mike Sekowsky with inks by Vince Alascia.
From Monster Hunters #4, here's the cover feature, "Hidden Paradise"! This was written by Joe Gill with art by Enrique Nieto.
And we'll wrap up this installment with "That Old Gang of Mine" from the same issue, written by Joe Molloy and drawn by Mike Zeck!
