PRE-CODE CLASSICS BEWARE Volume 2

Availability: In stock

Regular Price: $59.99

Sale Price $39.99

Closeout Price! Collects #8-14, 1954-55. Recommended. Art by Sid Check, Frazetta, Jay Disbrow, Myron Fass and Harry Harrison. Frazetta puts in a rare appearance, collaborating with Sid Check on an amazing cover. There are also stories of "a heart torn out," "blood drainage" and that's only what Overstreet is pointing out. One of the weirder titles of the time, as the filled newsstands meant publishers had to outdo the competition with bloodier, darker, stranger stories of horror. Sid Check provides two exceptional stories here and also Jay Disbrow, who is clunky but always fun.

Details

Frazetta puts in a rare appearance, collaborating with Sid Check on an amazing cover. There are also stories of "a heart torn out," "blood drainage" and that's only what Overstreet is pointing out. One of the weirder titles of the time, as the filled newsstands meant publishers had to outdo the competition with bloodier, darker, stranger stories of horror. Sid Check provides two exceptional stories here and also Jay Disbrow, who is clunky but always fun.

Also here are Myron Fass, John Forte, who went on to do tons of work for Stan Lee's Atlas titles, A.C. Hollingsworth, and the ubiquitous H.C. Kieffer puts in several unusual post-Golden Age appearances.

There's even a horror host, who looks more alien or Cthulhu-inspired than the old witches. We like titles like "Ghost of Fire," Sid Check's wild "The Man With the Broken Neck," Disbrow's "The Thing in the Fens" and the creepy "Dweller's in Darkness." There's a fun cover story of a comic book artist whose work comes to life, shown here, "Strange Affection," and "Daughter of Doom." Little known but competent Art Gates does several stories in a style reminiscent of George Roussos.

For more about this offbeat title from Trojan/Merit, see Volume 1.
