Virtually all of Haunted's recurrent themes were common to the genre, recycled in practically every horror comic to grace the newsstands. Haunted was notable for employing "The Beyond," as a unifying element to many of its storylines. While the idea was not used consistently, it became a recurring plot device in all of Fawcett's horror titles, sometimes playing an essential role in the narrative. It was, in a sense, the closest thing to a "universe" in a series of books otherwise lacking in continuity.
Briefly speaking, The Beyond was a mysterious plane of existence which occasionally encroached on the physical world.
the beyond | Ace Horror
A shadowy limbo vaguely akin to the Afterlife, it served as the source of the many supernatural menaces which threatened the "Realm of the Living". In a number of cases, it was a grey, lifeless Purgatory inhabited by rotting corpses; in others, a place of perpetual torment akin to Hell although it was never specifically defined as such.
The Beyond seemed to be the abode of all of humanity's worst fears; vampires, ghosts and demons existed alongside dragons, witches and harpies.
All seemed generally hostile towards mankind; some periodically crossed over to prey on selected victims or to seek vengeance on former tormentors. The traffic appeared to flow in both directions; mortals could inadvertently find themselves trapped in the Beyond before the end of their natural lives. Access to the Beyond took numerous forms.
Ghostly express trains made midnight runs to the other side, carrying the spirits of the recently departed. Phantom cruise liners ferried moldering passengers through the Sea of the Dead.
Unwary travellers often found themselves making a one-way trip on the Road to Nowhere. Sometimes, mechanised transport was completely unnecessary - swamps, caves and haunted houses all seemed to lie within the outer boundaries of The Beyond. Needless to say, the idea was not Fawcett's sole provenance; spectral dimensions had been a staple of fantasy magazines such as Weird Tales.
Fawcett's innovation lay in its use of the concept to connect many of Haunted's discontinuous storylines. As a single, underlying premise, The Beyond worked perfectly, providing both an endless reservoir of potential storylines and an explanation as to how supernatural forces could exist in the 'real' world. Along with many other titles of a similar vein, This Magazine is Haunted came under fire during the anti-comics backlash of the early fifties although generally speaking, its content was not quite as visceral as its rivals. Ironically, this was not the reason for the title's cancellation; Fawcett dropped its entire comics line in , largely as a result of an industry-wide sales slump and a long-running legal battle with DC Comics.
Fawcett sold most of its properties to Charlton Comics in , a deal which included the four horror titles. Evidently, Haunted was successful enough to continue publishing under its original numbering, starting with 16 March, For a time at least, Charlton attempted to maintain the moody atmosphere of its predecessor, even retaining the services of Doctor Death as the series' narrator.
After the establishing of the Comics Code in , the content was toned down considerably, dealing with magic, mystery and suspense rather than with outright horror. The change in content led to circulation problems, as the magazine was rebooted within a year, reverting to 1 in Doctor Death was replaced by Doctor Haunt possibly designed by Ditko, by now the title's lead artist. Horror stories with Nazi themes are a bit of a glorified fantasy of revenge we can only wish happened in real life in my opinion. They are rather satisfying to read though.
