FORBIDDEN WORLDS Volume 6

Availability: In stock

$48.00
Collects #33-39, 1954-55. Highly Recommended. By Ken Landau, Paul Gustavson, Charles Nicholas, Ogden Whitney et al. They may have been Forbidden to some--particularly when the Wertham Seduction of the Innocent book hit the newsstands--but to kids the length and breadth of the United States (and a select few in the UK), writer Richard Hughes and his tremblin' team of terrific tormenters were where it was at. Big time. And now, a half-century since the first issue appeared, ACG's wonderful Forbidden Worlds are accessible once more . . . and this time in state-of-the-art hardcover. Here is horror, time travel, space aliens, monsters and much more.

Details

Additional artwork by the great Kurt Schaffenberger and John Rosenberger, both of whom became mainstays in ACG's post code years (and superhero era) before moving on to DC Comics. Kurt became a regular artist on Superman and Lois Lane comics. Chic Stone is here, also a later ACG artist who moved on to Marvel in the 1960s, and Leonard Starr, who went on to huge fame for his syndicated strip, On Stage.

Weird, mysterious and spine-tingling stories featuring Issues 33-39 from September 1954 to December 1955 of the ACG classic Forbidden Worlds. Offbeat stories, still eminently readable and often fun and provocative. Featuring an essay by Barry Forshaw, this sixth volume has been meticulously compiled from the original source material and painstakingly digitally restored.
