The House of Hammer

Top Sellers Ltd. 1976-1978
Quality Communications 1982-1983

The House of Hammer was a British black-and-white magazine featuring articles and comics related to Hammer’s horror and science fiction films. Almost every issue of the magazine featured a comics adaptation of a Hammer film, as well as an original comics backup story, such as the long-running feature “Van Helsing’s Terror Tales”.

The magazine endured several name changes, beginning in 1976, the first 18 issues were titled “The House of Hammer”. it then became “Hammer’s House of Horror” for issues 19 and 20, and “Hammer’s Halls of Horror” for issues 21-23.

In 1978 the magazine went on hiatus for more than three years, returning in 1982 with issue 24, and the name “Hammer” was dropped from the title as it became simply “Halls of Horror”. The relaunch issue was marketed as a Winter Special without an issue number on the cover (the cover originally planned for issue 24 was included at the back of issue 29).

The magazine ceased publication with issue 30.

Quality Communications also produced a 1984 Dracula Special, featuring comic strips adapted from the Hammer films “Horror of Dracula” and “Dracula, Prince of Darkness”.
