The best horror comics ever made. This is a list of the scariest stories in comic book history. In the 1950s, nobody cared about superheroes. Horror was the most popular genre in comics and EC Comics was the most successful publisher with Tales From The Crypt, Vault of Horror and Haunt of Fear. But after the Comic Books Code came in, publishers were forced to tone down the gruesome bits.
