Secrets of Haunted House was a horror-suspense anthology comic book series published by DC Comics from 1975 to 1982.

Publication history[edit]

Like its predecessor Secrets of Sinister House, Secrets of Haunted House was originally "hosted" by Cain, Abel, Eve, and Destiny who had moved over from Weird Mystery Tales. By issue #10, Destiny was the only one of these who remained a regular. In issue #40, Abel returned with no further mention of Destiny. Debuting in April-May 1975, Secrets of Haunted House was a temporary victim of the "DC Implosion." With issue #14 (October-November 1978), it was cancelled but revived a year later with issue #15 (August 1979). The title continued until issue #46 (March 1982).[1]

In issue #31 (December 1980), the Mister E character was introduced,[2] and became a recurring character for ten issues.

The series' letter column was titled "The Haunted Mailbox."
