It’s quite a challenge identifying the contents of these Gredown horror comics. I'm building up a few more references, and I’ve managed to identify a couple above via the web. And note there’s a large TBC next to The Corpse – if it’s not in fact retitled, then the original source quoted is incorrect too.

I also note that similarly to other Gredowns (such as Monsters from Hell #1) it appears almost all the contents are sourced from various Eerie Publications issues.

So, it's still baby steps, but it no longer feels like crawling.
