Horror was hot, hot, hot in 1952. Publisher ACG, American Comics Group, started the entire horror trend with Adventures Into the Unknown in 1948. They added Forbidden Worlds in 1950. This was their third horror title. By now the stories were steadily getting more offbeat and complex. And as you can see in the credits line, they were bringing in important new artists.

In this collection you'll find three rare Al Williamson stories, one with Frazetta in collaboration. Plus several stories by Harry Lazarus, who was one of the best ACG artists with an unusual style not terribly unlike "Ghastly" Graham Ingels over at EC.

Stories? Not boasting a sci-fi title, ACG often put cool sci-fi stories in all three horror titles. Here is "Time Terror," "Scorpion from the Stars,"The Raven Sisters," "The Black Beyond," "The Phantom Fliers"--35 stories in all. Most are written by Richard Hughes, known today as one of the best comics writers of the period. He was also the editor. Covers for these five books are also a lot of fun, with skeletons, witches, vampires and mummies featured in battle or threatening charming young ladies!

Foreword by Roy Thomas.
