Availability: In stock

$54.99
Collects #13-18, 1953-4. Recommended. Art by Joe Orlando, Walter Johnson, Harry Harrison, A.C. Hollingsworth et al. Hy Fleishman and A.C. Hollingsworth were both Wally Wood-insipired artists, not up to him certainly but interesting and funky also-rans. So was this company, Master/Merit, doing their utmost to imitate and cash in on EC's horror line. Skeletons sell? Ok, let's put them on EVERY cover! Can we outdo EC for gore and violence? Sure, why not? Here is some very weird and esoteric material, including dismemberment, hypo blood drainage, cannibalism, witch burning, severed heads...and that's just the stuff noted in Overstreet!

Hy Fleishman and A.C. Hollingsworth were both Wally Wood-insipired artists, not up to him certainly but interesting and funky also-rans. So was this company, Master/Merit, doing their utmost to imitate and cash in on EC's horror line. Skeletons sell? Ok, let's put them on EVERY cover! Can we outdo EC for gore and violence? Sure, why not? Here is some very weird and esoteric material, including dismemberment, hypo blood drainage, cannibalism, witch burning, severed heads...and that's just the stuff noted in Overstreet!

Additional creators include Ed Goldfarb, Bill Fraccio, Lou Cameron, John D'Agostino, and Tony Tallarico. This is one of the more wacked-out titles of the pre-code, from a tiny publisher who knew they had to push every boundry of good taste to stand out in the pre-code glut of horror comics.
