Details

St. John was a mid-sized comics publisher with a varied list of titles, best known for the superb romance comics by Matt Baker. In June 1952 they joined the horror binge with two titles, Strange Terrors and Weird Horrors. Strange Terrors ended after seven issues, to be replaced by Nightmare #3, picking up from the excellent Ziff-Davis series.  Like Standard, St. John had a wonderful amount of talent to draw upon, making their short duration with horror a particularly good one.

And then there is the strange numbering: they then combined the title Nightmare with the numbering from Weird Horrors, so that Weird Horrors #9 and Nightmare #3 were followed by Nightmare #10. And after Nightmare #13 the title was changed to Amazing Ghost Stories for its final three issues.

Note: The limitation of just 300 seems a bit dubious to us, but we pulled this off of the PS Artbooks website. We'll try and update this if it's incorrect when we get the book;  they usually print 1700 copies or so of each of these titles.
