FORBIDDEN WORLDS Volume 7

Availability: In stock

$48.00
Collects #40-46, 1956. Highly Recommended. By Harry Lazarus, Kurt Schaffenberger, Ogden Whitney et al. Introduction by Barry Forshaw. They may have been Forbidden to some--particularly when Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent 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, Forbidden Worlds are accessible once more. Horror, time travel, space aliens, monsters and much more.

Details

Hughes couldn't depend on straight horror once the code started, so here more than ever he offers interesting, well plotted stories that are unlike anything else in comics. And while the art is not EC-style flashy, it's very competent and often really fun, as long-time pros like Ogden Whitney, who provides most of the covers, was joined by new young talents like Kurt Schaffenberger, who would go on to become a major artist for Lois Lane and Superman comics, as well as Jon Rosenberger, who did much of ACG's superhero work (Magic Man, et al) in the early 1960s.

Fun stories like "The Girl at the Bottom of the Sea," "The Man Who Knew Tomorrow," "Buried History," "Someone to Watch Over You," and "Mr. Miggs from Mercury."

They may have been Forbidden to some--particularly when Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent 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, Forbidden Worlds are accessible once more. Horror, time travel, space aliens, monsters and much more....and this time in state-of-the-art hardcover.
