10 Classic Twilight Zone Comic Covers

I recently stumbled across some Twilight Zone comics from the 60s and 70s and realized that many of them had fantastic cover art.   Because of the popularity of our post about old horror comic covers, I figured I would do a follow up which focused only on The Twilight Zone.  There are other great ones that could have made this list but I decided to focus only the more horror themed covers.

1. Issue #30  –  Definitely one of the creepiest comic covers I’ve seen.

2.  Issue #12  – I guess it just reminds me of all the classic, atmospheric horror movies I love.

3. Issue #9 – This one is just simply beautiful and what a great tag-line!

4. Issue #48  – A killer light? Really?  Well the cover has me sold on the concept.

5.  Issue #55 – Now I have to know how a poor memory can cause women to drive off cliffs and fall down stairs.

6. Issue #10 –  I’m not sure why The Hulk is in the window, but it’s cool anyway.

7.  Issue #70 – I think this one is by Salvidore Dali himself 🙂

8.  Issue #36 – Another one with a great classic ghost story vibe to it.

9. Issue #46 – Wait, in horror birds are supposed to fly into windows.

10. Issue #38 – Falling and electrocution seem to be recurring themes in Twilight Zone covers.

  1. Wunderbar! Great article! I’ve always wanted to watch the retro twilight zone tv show. Did not even know there was a comic. Do you know where one could watch the old tv shows or read the comics?

  2. Didn’t even know there ever a Twilight Zone comic. Great show, and I’m digging these covers. I guess the guy from the #5 entry may have forgotten how people get down stairs?

  3. Nice selection of covers. Most of these are nightmarishly surreal. I wish Gold Key had credited the cover artists. Even the very comprehensive Grand Comics Database website was unable to identify most of these.

    By the way, I posted a link to this on the Facebook group Horror Comics: 1950s & Beyond.
