Wild stories and outstanding artwork! Four stories by Alex Toth plus a bunch by Mike Sekowsky, who was obviously influenced by Toth and was doing work so close sometimes it's hard to identify! Plus bizarre, over-the-top horror and beautiful women by Jack Katz, future Wonder Woman artist Ross Andru, fine work by George Roussos, Tarzan comic strip artist John Celardo. Plus we have a cannibalism story, a cool classic spider cover and more fun.

This title from Standard is an above average one for the time. Standard didn't do horror or sci-fi for very long...this title lasted just ten issues, as it began with #5, but what they did stands out. Alex Toth was their premiere creator and set the tone for the other artists, helping to create almost a house style that Sekowsky and Andru both emulated.

Meticulously compiled from the original source material and painstakingly digitally restored.

This is a special slipcased edition. Up until now we have not carried these slipcase editions, except when some were recently put on sale. But since the publisher has dropped the price on these to very little more than the regular edition, we thought we'd try these and see if customers like them. They certainly protect the books well, and often come with special artwork on the spines, that when put together form larger pictures, making them fun to display on a bookshelf.
