Availability: In stock

$44.99
Collects Tales of Terror #1, 1951, & Tales of Horror #1-4, 1952-53. Recommended. By Myron Fass, John Fawcette, Ravielli, Hollingsworth et al. Toby Press was a small but respectable comics publisher, which also used the imprint Minoan; they put out one issue of Tales of Terror, then got hit by a cease-and-desist order from E.C., who used that title for their annuals. Toby dropped that and started over with Tales of Horror, which ran thirteen issues. Toby may be the only comics publisher to swipe the urbane and cynical stories of John Collier, rather than relying on Poe, Lovecraft, and the like. "This is Terror-Man" in #1 and torture scenes in #2.

Toby Press was a small but respectable comics publisher, which also used the imprint Minoan; they put out one issue of Tales of Terror, then got hit by a cease-and-desist order from E.C., who used that title for their annuals. Toby dropped that and started over with Tales of Horror, which ran thirteen issues. Toby may be the only comics publisher to swipe the urbane and cynical stories of John Collier, rather than relying on Poe, Lovecraft, and the like. "This is Terror-Man" in #1 and torture scenes in #2.

Includes "Death from the Sea" with art by Brown and Gantz, starring a beautiful blonde reporter; "The Curse of King Kala," in which a madman shrinks a young couple to 4" tall--"you'll make wonderful guinea pigs, children. I must hurry and prepare some experiments." Needless to say, they escape to a danger-filled garden.

Also here: "Trespasser from Beyond," "The Toy Army," "The Devil's Clock," "Love from a Plant," "The Hand of Jao Tze," and Myron Fass shows his best good-girl art on "The Thing in the Pool." There's also a space epic, "Exile to Death," and "Demons Below Us, " except the demons are beautiful women...or ghosts...who offer eternal life. "Time is Running Out" is a flying saucer story. And much more.
