PRE-CODE CLASSICS FANTASTIC WORLDS/ LOST WORLDS Volume 1

Availability: In stock

$44.99
Collects Lost Worlds #5-6, 1952-53, and Fantastic Worlds #5-7 1952. Highly Recommended. By Alex Toth, Murphy Anderson, John Celardo, Ross Andru et al. Marauding winged men, dishy dolls with back-packs and ray guns, blazing interplanetary rocket ships, and grumpy flora and fauna -- this one has it all! Outer space as it should be, courtesy of the greatest comic book writers and artists of the 1950s. Alex Toth does "Alice in Terrorland" and has stories in four of these five issues, plus a cover. A rare treat from Murphy Anderson! The complete run of both titles, since Standard liked to start their new titles with issue #5, and these had short but top-notch life-spans. Comparable to what was being done at EC and in Strange Adventures and Mystery in Space at DC, for both good art AND stories!

Marauding winged men, dishy dolls with back-packs and ray guns, blazing interplanetary rocket ships, and grumpy flora and fauna -- this one has it all!

I've always been a big fan of these few but great issues. The artwork is always a step above other pre-code titles, and these in particular are sci-fi titles, so we get our favorite artists doing stories of outer space, time travel, alien invasions, you name it. Murphy Anderson is always a stand-out in these early stories of his, at the same time as he was getting to be a regular at DC Comics. Jack Katz is also here.

Covers are also great, I just wish I could picture more of them here. And the Toth stories are knockouts. A great collection!
