The phrase “cosmic horror” is often used to describe the stories of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos stories and other tales of terror from beyond space and time. Many books, magazines, and comic books feature tales of cosmic horror, the earliest publication being the famous Weird Tales pulp magazine which emerged in the early 1920s and published many of Mr. Lovecraft’s tales of cosmic fear and dread.
Cosmic Horror Monthly is a recent publication to specialize in this unique sub-genre. A new listing on Ebay offers seven new issues of CHM for a very low price of $39.00. That’s about $5.50 per copy, and considering that the magazine sells for $9.00, it’s a great value for fans of cosmic horror.
You get the last six issues from January, 2022 to June, 2022, and the special signed Lovecraft edition released in August of 2021.
January’s issue features popular horror author Laird Barron while February’s edition contains an exclusive interview with world renown writer Ramsey Campbell along with the story “Slow.”
The lot of seven issues of Cosmic Horror Monthly on Ebay are like new with few if any signs of wear.
3D has been around since the 1950s when it was popularized by such great films as “The Creature From the Black Lagoon” and “It Came From Outer Space.” It also found it’s way into some fantastic pre-code comic books, one of the best being St. John’s HOUSE OF TERRORS featuring awesome art by great precode horror artists including Joe Kubert who drew the lead-in story called PICTURE OF EVIL.
In my latest video on pre-code horror comic book reprints, I delve further into the 3-D comic process I covered in my last video as a follow up with some key info as to why I found some of the newer 3-D comics like Seduction of the Innocent 3-D to be inferior to the original 1950s pre-code comics…I was doing it wrong!!

Eclipse Comics Seduction of the Innocent Pre-code reprints.
Looking further into 1980s and 90s pre-code horror comic book reprints, in episode four we look at stellar comic book artists Bernie Wrightson, Dave Stevens, Alex Toth, Reed Crandall, and others who graced the pages of the great Seduction of the Innocent Series featuring six full color issues and two 3-D issues published by Eclipse comics in the mid 1980s.
The title for the comic book series was taken from the 1950s “Seduction of the Innocent” by Dr. Frederic Wertham, the disgruntled old man who led the charge against comic books in the pre-code era and helped bring about the disastrous “Comics Code Authority.”
