How about a digital horror 'remix' from '50s ?

Hi everyone,

Well my thing is not a webcomic and maybe not even a comic at all lol
But as I see the creative buzz going on here I thought would be good to get your opinions...

A while ago I stumbled upon golden age comics and immediately fell in love with This Magazine is Haunted. (My favourite tale is 'The Wig' from issue #14 vol 1) - it's such a great story that I decided I have to bring these somehow over to the age of digital displays.
So after months and months spent literally in photoshop and indesign I got something I'd like to show you, and would be great if I could get your opinion on this:

Please tell me, honestly, what do you think?

cheers

50s pulp-horror comics!
I don't have the time to read through it all but I like the idea.

Pretty cool stuff. Read the "Death Fish" story.

This all comes from the 50's comics then? What did you have to do to get them prepared?

I'm glad you like it. Cheers!
check out 'the wig' - I just uploaded it this week - even better than death fish imo:

yea the whole idea is to restore the discontinued "this magazine is haunted" - has been published in 50's

what do you mean by "getting them prepared"??
basically I just took the scans and spent hours in photoshop and indesign...
