We never had that much of a horror comics tradition over here,
most of our stuff was comic characters like Hungry Horace,
and the action genre was almost completely taken up by WW2 stories.
Some of the comics, as their name implies,
were offered for their humor; little stories rendered in an effort to make u laff.
There were some science fiction adventure "comics" (in name only),
ofen including Space Travel, and there were Superman comics.
My personal library had a special dept. dedicated to those.
"Horror" comics were not much to my taste.
I have never liked Spiderman, nor his generation.
In the 70's American comics were only held by the odd newsagent, and were few and far between, but there did seem to be a lot of them at seaside resorts. I will always associate American horror comics with childhood holidays on the beach.
In America, holidays are not age-based; even April Fools Day is for everyone.
At Christmas time, everyone gets presents, not just kids.
Even though this was past the golden era of comics,
they were quite gruesome nonetheless.
I never went much for the gruesome. To tell u the truth,
I was not aware of their existence.
Izzy, in English comics, r the characters
all running around un
armed, in a state of helplessness ??
