Terror Tales was a long-running American pulp magazine of the horror comics and weird menace genres. It was originally published by Popular Publications. The first issue was published in September 1934 Though hit hard by the Senate comic book hearings and the Comics Code Authority, Terror Tales would recover and continue to be published decades later, after several relaunches by other publishers like Eerie Publications, in the 1970s.

One of the seminal horror comics, it was joined shortly afterwards (1935) with its sister horror comic, Horror Stories, also from the same publisher.

Terror Tales followed many of the conventions of the horror comic genres, such as the use of scantily-clad damsel in distress covers.

Some of the writers and artists whose work appeared in Terror Tales included Rudolph Belarski and E. Hoffmann Price.
