PRE-CODE CLASSICS BAFFLING MYSTERIES Volume 1

Availability: In stock

$44.99
Collects #5-9,1951-52 (this began with #5). Recommended. By Mike Sekowsky, Lou Cameron, Gene Colan, Maurice Gutwirth et al. Mike Sekowsky, Maurice Gutwirth, George Appel, Gene Colan, Jim McLaughlin, Ace Baker, Lou Cameron (Wood-ish art), Bill Molno, and Chic Stone all contribute stories to this collection from small but excellent publisher Ace. Like sister title The Beyond, this is another offbeat Ace Publications title that offered reasonably written stories without going over the top like other comics of the era, and yet keeping a good overall quality of story. Not unlike what Richard Hughes was doing over at ACG, but Ace had generally better artists!

The fine Lou Cameron. Mike Sekowsky is here often doing his best imitation of Alex Toth, and we have a rare single appearance of Marvel's unique Gene Colan.

FYI, Ace Baker is a nom de plum attached to an artist often mistaken for Matt Baker, possibly his brother. Jim Vadeboncoeur and Hames Ware did massive research to finally separate myth from truth, and real Matt Baker stories from imitations by the Iger shop and...Ace. They invented the name to identify the still-unknown artist who looks so much like Baker himself.
