This volume from Charlton is as good as it gets, with a roster of writers and artists that includes the truly remarkable and now late lamented Steve Ditko (the Traveler's creator) together with Carl Burgos, Rocco Mastroserio, Charles Nicholas, Bill Molno, Matt Baker, Bob Powell, Alan Mandel, George Woodbridge, John D'Agostino, Cal Massey, and Mannie Banks. Includes a bonus, the original pre-Ditko Mysterious Traveler #1 (from 1948) and the strange and bizarre pre-code horror title, Horror from the Tomb #1 (from 1954).

George Woodbridge is a stand-out here, for his work on Horror from the Tomb. The cover of this comic is a fun one already, but George's story "Grandma Gruesome’s Dead Time Story" seems to be channeling Frazetta, Torres and Al Williamson, including at least one or two swipes I can recognize. Nonethess, Woodbridge is another undeservedly forgotten talent, whose short era of work in comics, in the 1950s, deserves more attention. This is one of his classics.

And Ditko's first two stories in the first issue here are also top drawer, with nice large panels, exotic eastern costumes, magic and mystery in his best fashion.
