Publisher Fawcett was the Captain Marvel powerhouse of the 1940s. But when horror came along, they wholeheartedly embraced it and gave EC a run for its money during the short-lived tenure.

Bob McCarty is not what you would consider a big name artist of the pre-code, but nonetheless each story of his is exceptional. He can be confused with the also-excelllent Bernard Baily, who also embraced pre-code horror and did some hugely popular work. McCarty could draw it all, with finesse, as he shows here: sideshow freaks, devils and demons, murderers, lunatics...exceptional work that makes you want to read every story. We've included a scan of his splash page for "Journey to Chaos." Check it out.
