10 Classic Twilight Zone Comic Covers


Rare Horror

I recently stumbled across some Twilight Zone comics from the 60s and 70s and realized that many of them had fantastic cover art.   Because of the popularity of our post about old horror comic covers, I figured I would do a follow up which focused only on The Twilight Zone.  There are other great ones that could have made this list but I decided to focus only the more horror themed covers.

1. Issue #30  –  Definitely one of the creepiest comic covers I’ve seen.

2.  Issue #12  – I guess it just reminds me of all the classic, atmospheric horror movies I love.

3. Issue #9 – This one is just simply beautiful and what a great tag-line!

TZ Comic 3

4. Issue #48  – A killer light? Really?  Well the cover has me sold on the concept.

5.  Issue #55 – Now I have to know how a poor memory can cause women to drive off cliffs and…

After 10 episodes and a summer of time-shifting successes, Wayward Pines came to a bloody and awakening end tonight – literally and figuratively. Or did it?

8 Of The Scariest Are You Afraid Of The Dark? Episodes Ever


Thought Catalog

It’s October now, which means basic boys and girls across the land are celebrating the return of Hocus Pocus-watching season.

In essence, the film is 100% my speed, my innermost basic self is not ashamed, and it’s most definitely my go-to for fall/Halloween binge watching. It’s the only Halloween-centric thing, besides the Disney Channel Original classic, Halloweentown, that I can manage to watch without peeing my pants.

This is why I cannot for the life of me understand that when I was in college, I asked my mom for the entire series of Are You Afraid of the Dark? on DVD. Actually, there were three reasons:

A) I was making my Christmas list (Yes, I still make a Christmas…
