Boris Karloff’s Tales of Mystery,
Gold Key Comics (1963-79)
The Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery comics were originally published in the 1960s in a series of 97 issues by Gold Key. Each issue contained approximately 6 original stories featuring Boris Karloff. There were additional stories, puzzles and games in each issue, all in vibrant color by wonderful artists of the day. Gold Key Comics published the first 2 issues as “Thriller”, beginning in October 1962.
For years I had searched for a comic I had as a kid “The Thing Called Illona”- I remembered the cover and the general story. I thought it was an EC Comics title, but turned out it was an obscure Gold Key title. I don’t know why Google failed me for years, but recently I found it, downloaded the entire run of 97 issues, our biggest add ever, and here it is.
