In this entry of Off The Rack Comics I am covering yet another Charlton title. This one is Monster Hunters and it ran for eighteen issues from August of 1975 until February of 1979. This title I do remember reading regularly thanks to my grandmother, who would buy issues for her husband to read that would then be passed along to me.
Welcome to yet another edition of Off The Rack Comics, a travel back in time to revisit comic book titles of yesteryear. Once again I am covering comic book publisher Charlton Comics with one of their less popular horror comics, Creepy Things. In fact, it only ran for six issues.
I have always been a fan of horror comics with my true love being those by EC Comics, who created such classic titles as Tales from the Crypt, The Vault of Horror and The Haunt of Fear. Though many companies over the years tried to bring back the feel of the EC titles, few were able to do it in large part to the creation of the Comics Code Authority. The CCA was formed in 1954 by the Comics Magazine Association of America as an alternative to government regulation as a result of widespread public concern over gory and horrific comic-book content. The CCA allowed the comic publishers to self-regulate the content of comic books in the United States, thus taming them down.
