October Update – Two New Titles Available

WOE-3-HEADER

As we already mentioned elsewhere, this title has the lot . . . including persuasive evidence that animated corpses (that’s zombies to you, fella) used to be gray and had see-through rib-cages. Just shows you how far medical science has come in the almost sixty intervening years. They’re all good, these books we’re bringing out (bringing out? Heck, we’re unleashing ‘em!) but this one may well be the gerkin on the burger.

FW-10-HEADER

hey may have been Forbidden to some–particularly when the Wertham Seduction of the Innocent book hit the newsstands–but to kids the length and breadth of the United States (and a select few in the UK), Richard Hughes and his tremblin’ team of terrific tormenters were where it was at. Big time. And now, a half-century since the first issue appeared, ACG’s wonderful Forbidden Worlds are accessible once more . . . and this time in state-of-the-art hardcover volumes containing five to seven issues apiece. This is going to be one hell of a journey: come make it with us as we travel together through some of the most memorable comicbooks of all time.

Two New Titles Available – Ghost Comics #1 & Planet Comics #11

ghost-header-v1

Collected together for the very first time, these classic anthologies will thrill you today as much as when they were first published.

This often unfairly forgotten 11-strong series (of which this volume captures the first seven issues) surely boasted some of the most magnificent covers of any of the EC wannabes of some sixty-plus years ago, despite the artists concerned being a considerable way from being ‘household names’. One of these forgotten masters is Maurice Whitman—just check out the cover for #6! Plus you get EC’s very own Jack Kamen regularly popping up inside. Wonderful stuff.

This was material that suggested unpleasantness rather than just stepped forward and pulled the old schlock-it-up lever. Heartily recommended for the more discerning horror comics reader. And watch out for the second volume which completes the run with Ghost’s final four issues and adds in the complete brace of issues of Fiction House’s Monster Comics. Hooo, wait’ll you see those babies!

witchcraft-header

Collected together for the very first time, these classic anthologies will thrill you today as much as when they were first published.

Take a look at these covers and see what it was like back in the fabulous far out’n’freaky, fun’n’funky fifties as regards four-color comicbooks. For just one thin dime, you’d get, f’rinstance, number 4  featuring Death boiling a glamorous raven-haired vixen while inside this crazy volume you’ve got words, inks and pencils from the likes of Mort Meskin, Joe Kubert, Everett Kinstler, Sid Check, Ed Goldfarb and Kelly Freas. You know, makes you feel just like a kid again but I haven’t quite finished the other one yet! Soon…

This single volume features issues 1 – 6 from March 1952 to March 1953. It also features bonus issue “The Dead Who Walk” from 1952.
