While EC was just getting started with its new horror and sci-fi titles, Adventures Into the Unknown already had three years of 52-page issues grabbing readers. Ogden Whitney, whose Skyman had been a cover feature since the early 1940s, is here with wild horror covers with monsters and threatened ladies. More Golden Age vets like the excellent Charles Sultan, plus Lin Streeter, Emil Gershwin, Al Camy, and Ken Bald were making solid contributions. The now-esoteric and collectible Paul Gattuso was also now a regular.

Bissette provides an amazing 14-page, illustrated overview of ACG, AITU, and puts is all in perspective of the then-current sci-fi and horror moves. He also looks at each artist and their careers. And, of course, the outstanding Richard Hughes was probably writing many, if not most, of the stories here. 27 fun stories in all, plus fun ads text stories and letters pages!
