1978: TALES OF TERROR (Portman Distribution)

TALES OF TERROR, alongside CASTLE OF HORROR (see previous post), was the other title reprinting Marvel's scare-fare from the US 'mature readers' (years before the description became part of common parlance) magazine line.  Both were made possible by a mix-up in Marvel's hallowed halls which allowed interloper Portman Distribution to license reprints, circumventing Marvel UK.

Five issues appeared monthly in 1978 before the deal was unravelled, apparently following complaints from the Annex of Ideas.
