PRE-CODE CLASSICS JOURNEY INTO FEAR Volume 1

Availability: On Order

$59.99
Special Order - takes 3-4 weeks! Collects #1-7, 1951-52. 30 stories. Competing with EC's Tales from the Crypt et al, publisher Superior had the famous "Iger Shop" (who'd done all the Fiction House stories for years) crank out the weirdest, most outré stories they could think up. All in the famous "Jack Kamen-ish" style that they'd learned sold so well, even after Kamen was long gone from their staff! They also figured out skeletons, monsters and pretty girls sold books, so every cover varied that common theme for those early 1950s kids who wanted a good scare.

30 stories. Competing with EC's Tales from the Crypt et al, publisher Superior had the famous "Iger Shop" (who'd done all the Fiction House stories for years) crank out the weirdest, most outré stories they could think up.

As if the Korean War and nuclear holocaust weren't enough to worry about...

You want a snapshot of this baby? Check out these two tales. A woman convinces her lover to kill her rich husband. The lover does so by blowing the husband's head off with a gun. After the wife and her lover get married and cash in on the dead man's insurance, the headless corpse of the husband comes back from the dead looking for a new head.

And, as if that were not quite enough: Lorna is trained to hate men. She finds a witchcraft book. She begins a crusade of turning men into worms and squishing them. She accidentally squishes the man she loves. She takes poison, as worms come out of the walls to avenge themselves. Wild, over-the-top horror!
