This is one of those entries where I share with you something near and dear to my geeky heart, but obscure, even by geek standards.
I just found this absolutely brilliant site:
It’s a blog that focuses on horror of the 1970s–specifically, the pulp paperbacks, comic books, and occasionally, films of the “horror boom” of the early-to-mid seventies. You know: pulpy paperback series, Marvel’s Tomb of Dracula, Hammer Films, fumetti (Italian adult comics), gonzo euro-horror films, etc.
He’s currently doing an entire month focused on Dracula stuff, so the blog has been briefly re-titled “The Groovy Age of Dracula.”
Needless to say, I LOVE this stuff….and the site is a real treasure-trove of information. It’s only been running since January, so check out the archives.
One Reply to “Hell, yeah.”
Neat. Marvel’s been collecting the Tomb of Horror in their Essential series of cheap black & white paperbacks. I’m quite enjoying it, so far.
