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!
