When Marvel's attempt to publish a digest-sized prose horror anthology flopped, they recycled the title, THE HAUNT OF HORROR, as an addition to their line of black-and-white monster/hooror comics. The series featured stories showcasing Marvel Universe characters (Satana the Devil's Daughter, Gabriel the Devil-Hunter), adaptations of horror short stories, original anthological stand-alone tales, reprints of old Atlas comics stories, prose stories and articles. This incarnation was only slightly more successful, lasting five issues.
The title "HAUNT OF HORROR" was revived by Marvel in the mid-2000s for two mini-series featuring mature-reader adaptaions of stories by Edgar Allen Poe and H. P. Lovecraft.
Edited by Roy Thomas (issues #1 & 2), Marv Wolfman (2–4), Tony Isabella (#3 & 4), David Anthony Kraft (#5), and Don McGregor (#5).
