Ah, they were truly the best of times. Forget the rest. Richard Hughes’s groundbreaking Adventures Into The Unknown, the world’s first anthology-title boldly stepped where no comicbook had gone before. And now, hot on the heels of their critically acclaimed and hugely popular Harvey Horrors series, those lovely folks at PS Artbooks are making them all available again . . . along with ACG’s other much-loved titles–and this time in state-of-the-art hardcover volumes containing five toseven 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..

Can you help?
It turns out that some of the early issues of Dick Briefer’s wonderful creation are harder to find than a perfectly square piece of sand on your local beach. And then some. In addition to our resident Skip Tracer, Roy ‘Bring ‘em back alive Thomas, we’ve had lots of fantastic helpers looking for issues of Prize Comics containing the start of the Briefer run but, so far, with only limited success. So we figured, instead of holding up the proceedings, we’d start out with volume 3 which contains issues 1 through 5 of the actual Frankenstein book. The earlier yarns will come along as soon as we get our greasy mitts on ‘em. And if you know of the whereabouts of any copies of Prize containing Frankie then drop us a line at info@psartbooks.com. If the info leads to a success then, hey . . . you’ll get a mention in dispatches and a copy of the finished book.

About Frankenstein Volume 4
Writer/Artist Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein for Prize Comics is widely regarded as being America’s first ongoing horror series. Indeed, it was Briefer’s work that probably caused the creature to be actually named as Frankenstein instead of the nameless monstrosity from Shelley’s novel. Splitting the stories between two stools—humor and horror—Briefer’s tales are absorbing and unsettling in equal parts. Some of the humorous material has already been reprinted, though not necessarily in order nor in total. Until now, of course!

Due to be published for April 2014, Volume Four features a special introduction from Donald F. Glut. Not forgetting the original comics painstakingly restored from original source material! Issues included in this Volume are Issues from January/February – November/December 1947 from Prize Comics.
