- Full Description
Weird, mysterious and spine-tingling tales from the first-ever horror comic book, begun in 1948. Significant here is that Al Williamson shows up, assisted by Roy Krenkel, on a superb reincarnation story, moonlighting from his work at EC. Artist George Wilhelms, previously unknown to us, also comes on board with some fine work that reminds us of Catman artist Charles Quinlan.
Stories include "Invasion of the Ghost Monsters," "The Hideous Head," "Double Vision," "The Spectre's Revenger," "Satan's Sceptre," and "The Citadel of Evil," where intrepid scientists launch a space rocket which goes out of control, plows deep into the earth, and finds the equivalent of Hell and have their souls transferred out of their bodies! This is by newcomer Wilhelms. Fun stuff!
We also like Wilhelm's "Dolls of Doom," a page of which is here with our scans. Richard Hughes as usual is behind much of the offbeat, character-driven stories here, as editor and primary writer. Still lots of vampires, mad killers, monsters, witches, specters, ghosts, even a werewolf or two. Introduction by David Tosh.
