PRE-CODE CLASSICS THE UNSEEN Volume 1

Availability: In stock

$49.99
Collects #5-10 (#1-5), 1952-53. Highly Recommended. By Alex Toth, Nick Cardy, John Fawcette, Mike Sekowsky, John Celardo, Jack Katz, Mike Esposito & Ross Andru et al. It was the 1950's -- the Atomic Age, the Cold War, and just before the Space Race. But nothing could match the imagination, the surprise, and the chilling-of-your-spine like the great horror comics of yesteryear. Some of the best non-EC horror stories came out of tiny publisher Standard, whose all-star artist Alex Toth set a high standard for his fellows. Both Mike Ross (Mike Esposito and Ross Andru) and Mike Sekowsky offer multiple wonderful Toth-style stories, inspired by the master. Jack Katz does his over-the-top thing.

It was the 1950's -- the Atomic Age, the Cold War, and just before the Space Race. But nothing could match the imagination, the surprise, and the chilling-of-your-spine like the great horror comics of yesteryear. Some of the best non-EC horror stories came out of tiny publisher Standard, whose all-star artist Alex Toth set a high standard for his fellows. Both Mike Ross (Mike Esposito and Ross Andru) and Mike Sekowsky offer multiple wonderful Toth-style stories, inspired by the master. Jack Katz does his over-the-top thing.

Stories include "The Hungry Lodger," Alex Toth's "The Blood Money of Galloping Chad Burgess," "The Thirsty Idol," "Death Warmed Over," "Bleeding Platter," "The Rat Man," "Your Grave is Ready," "Blood on the Speedway," "The Ring of Horror," "The Phantom Train," "The Vengeance Vat," etc. Witches, demons, Siamese twins, murderers, a werewolf, ghosts, a swamp fiend...it's a delightfully scary world in The Unseen!

First of two volumes to collect every issue from 1952-54.
