Horror Tales

Horror Tales on Ebay
Horror Tales June 1969 - February 1979. Eerie Publications. 45 issues.

Horror Tales was one of four Eerie Publications titles to debut in 1969, and the fourth one under that imprint. The company had been producing magazine-sized comics for more than three years, and apparently sales were good enough to convince publisher Myron Fass to keep going (or else they would have been done away with long before).

The book would last practically an entire decade. While the contents weren't very different from any of the company's other horror titles (although Eerie was starting to use a few new, original stories in addition to the usual reprints at the time), the artwork continued to be just as lurid and outrageous - thank goodness.
