Details

A new bargain-priced softcover with five more full issues, complete with glossy inserts for the covers. These are the closest thing to reading the original comics from back in the 1950s. An artist paints monsters that come to life in "Portrait in Blood." A deformed ghoul kills beautiful women to create a female mate for himself in "The Body Maker." Ghost cowboys and cattle haunt the "Doom Ranch."

Another fine selection of EC-style horror stories from one of the best Harvey Horror titles. Lots of artwork by masterful Rudy Palais in his over-the-top style of wild, sweating killers and bold art. Wonderful Bob Powell work on an atomic disaster story, "The Last Man on Earth," about gray, Hulk-like monsters who take over the world. And there's a follow-up story a couple issues later! There's "Marching Zombies," "Carnival of Death," a pirate story, "Whip of Death," more zombie types in "Rotting Death."

Two of the stories here are used as examples of what was bad in comics, in Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent. This is the second of what will be five softcover books collecting the entire pre-code run of Black Cat Mystery. Four hardcover editions, with additional material including introductions and artist bios, and slightly different issue contents, are all available, completing the series to #53.
