Thirty fun stories of witches, spectres, dead men, avenging souls and much more, mostly written by the top-notch Hughes. A sister magazine to the better known Adventures into the Unknown and Forbidden Worlds, this offers the same unusual pre-code horror stories ACG (American Comics Group) was known for.

Stores include The Frozen Ghost, Numbered for Death, Death Has Wings, In the Wake of the Bomb, The Fountain of Age, The Reluctant Witch, My Pal Ghost, Music for the Dead, I Am a Thing, etc.

Rather than the over-the-top blood and guts of Harvey and some of the EC tales, ACG was slightly more of a thinking man's comic. Hughes is known for his plot twists and exceptionally imaginative writing, all in evidence here. Includes most ads, contents pages, etc. Foreword by Mark Morris. All covers by Ken Bald, with addition artwork by Sheldon Moldoff.
