Another off-beat publisher from the pre-code horror boom. From Master/Merit comes a 24-issue series kicking off with an eight-pager from Wally Wood ("The Curse of the Sea Witch")! Elsewhere there are tales from Joe Orlando, Walter Johnson, Ed Goldfarb, Bill Fraccio, Lou Cameron, John D'Agostino, Tony Tallarico, Harry Harrison (Wood's studio-mate and the Hugo-award winning Sci Fi writer), Hy Fleishman and a whole host of other wacked-out-of-their-gourd luminaries.

Doug Wildey has a rare story in issue #2. Stories include "The Ghoul of Death", Lou Cameron's"Cannibal's Revenge", "Terror of the Cat-Men", "The Vigil of the Ghost Pirates", a beautiful seductress stars in "The Deadly Diamond", "The Dead Rise", "The Unwilling Witch" and lots more.

The skeleton covers are a highpoint...these folks were convinced that the more skeletons threatening the ladies and gents the better, so every cover but one has you-know-what. Fun stuff! The Wood/Harrison cover on #2 is especially great and they turn in an 8-page story inside, too.

In future issues you'll get dismemberment, hypo blood drainage, cannibalism, a witch burning, severed heads, EC Johnny Craig swipes, bondage, injury-to-the-eye, and covers featuring torture, skeletons and the Devil.
