Closeout Price! Limited, 300! Collects #44-50, 1953. Recommended. Art by Harry Lazarus, Jon Blummer, Paul Gattuso et al. I find the level of artwork is quite good here, a notch above earlier issues and working well with the ever-interesting stories. One of the most readable titles from this period of pre-code horror. And with an occasional time travel or sci-fi story in the mix. Above-average artwork also from talented Canadian artist Edmond Good, the excellent Robert McCarty, and Ken LandauKen Bald, Pete Riss, Lin Streeter, Charles Nicholas, DC regular Bernard Sachs, and even Stan Lee's stalwart from Atlas, Bob Forgione.

I find the level of artwork is quite good here, a notch above earlier issues and working well with the ever-interesting stories. One of the most readable titles from this period of pre-code horror. And with an occasional time travel or sci-fi story in the mix. Above-average artwork also from talented Canadian artist Edmond Good, the excellent Robert McCarty, and Ken Landau. Ken Bald, Pete Riss, Lin Streeter, Charles Nicholas, DC regular Bernard Sachs, and even Stan Lee's stalwart from Atlas, Bob Forgione.

Weird, mysterious and spine-tingling tales from ACG's flagship title that began the horror comics era. No records exist of who wrote what, but we know the excellent Richard Hughes, along with being editor, wrote many of these offbeat tales. This ninth volume has been meticulously compiled from the original source material and painstakingly digitally restored.

Some outstanding artwork by Jon Blummer--it's interesting that here he looks very much like Catman artist Charles Quinlain, while his style was different as the go-to artist for both Fiction House's good girl books and for Classics Illustrated throughout the 1940s and early 1950s.
