“The Occult Files of Doctor Spektor”–This Early-70s Epic Mod-Gothic Publication Was My First Comic Book Collection! Here Is Issue #1 in Its Entirety…

The Occult Files of Doctor Spektor, Issue 1: Cult of the Vampire! (Gold Key Comics 1973)

Remember The Occult Files of Dr. Spektor? It had a very short run, sadly. But I was an eager 12 year old and this was my cup of brew. In fact, the 1970s publication, which ran for about 20 issues, was my very first comic book collection! And…it was my initiation into the world of the Occult. I’m bringing it to you, now, Dear Reader, every month–an issue at a time…Guess you could say I’m “resurrecting a personal monster”…

Long May He Live!!!

The Horsingdon Transmissions, No.71: “The Warehouse” (#reblog @Whispers from the Ghooric Zone)


The Horsingdon Transmissions No.71: The Warehouse

‘This bunker-like structure—which has been repurposed as the freight depot which services the local Northwich rail lines—was at one time utilised by the Ministry during their period of involvement (which some maintain continues to this day) with the mysteries of the Horsingdon Triangle.

The original purpose of the building remains unclear, although local residents refer to it as “the Warehouse”; in relation to which, what might appear to the casual observer as traditional mason’s marks (etched throughout the brickwork across the circumference of the building) in fact constitute elements of a complex system of obscure occult symbology—a system delineating a set of geometrically—obscure non-Euclidean and hyperdimensional relations, which are typically used for binding and containing praeternatural intrusions into this world.

The building certainly has acquired something of an uncanny reputation over the years, primarily as as a result of the strange sounds that would sometimes issue from its interior; indeed, one can still hear tales—occasionally whispered by the rail workers who frequent the numerous nearby hostelries—concerning encounters with a “nameless mist” or “formless thing” which continues to haunt the edifice to this day.’
