Seven more issues, 28 more stories plus period ads and special features. Stories of science fiction and horror, of talking machines, insect monsters, Death himself, the killing dead, an evil eye, spirits, plant creatures, and horror at the Mardi Gras.

Editor and writer Richard Hughes continues here to explore the unnatural and the fantastic, in quality stories that placed ACG (American Comics Group) above the average horror comics of this time. This is just before the comics code came along, so stories could still have realism and shock. But thanks to Hughes, the stories remain readable and fun to this day.

Tales exploring the supernatural collected toegther from the ACG classic Forbidden Worlds issues #26-32. Volumes will be meticulously compiled from the original source material and painstakingly digitally restored.

Foreword by Sid Jones, who describes being a collector in England beginning in 1957, Saturday morning get-togethers with collecting buddies, trying hard to find American titles in those days. "The most under-rated Ken Landau depicts quite a number of stories, and there's George Klein,who later was to ink many of the classic Superman stories of the 1960s over Curt Swan's sublime pencils."
