Description

Here’s another very collectible but half-forgotten title in the great tradition of the likes of EC Comics and the Harvey Horrors–this from Fawcett, a far cry from their Captain Marvel family books. But in keeping with Fawcett’s high standards, this boasts an A-list of contributors, good stories…and Doctor Death! Gnarled and twisted tales of post-death revenge and retribution, including some superlative work by the obscure but top-notch Bob McCarty (who’s been mistaken for Bernard Baily) and Bob Powell. Two severed-head covers and a burning skull cover are here, and that’s just the beginning…

Shelly Moldoff (Hawkman, Moongirl) does every one of the covers here. He’s known to have suggested horror themed comics to Bill Gaines long before EC jumped into that world, and he does some great work here. Bob Powell does some GREAT stories, including the legendary “Wall of Flesh” about, well, a wall of flesh devouring everything that touches it. We’ve illustrated one of the pages here. McCarty’s work is on another scan we’ve chosen, “Devil’s Mask,” so you can see how good (and dark and macabre) he is, perfect for these stories.

And also we have the work of little-known Bud Thompson. He’s also very accomplished, the artist that took over Captain Marvel, Jr. after Beck and Mac Raboy left, and did a fine job on dozens and dozens of stories in that title and also with CMJr in Master Comics.

For more details, see Volume One on our website. Publisher Charlton took over this title with #15, and Steve Ditko began doing some of his earliest comics work in #16, which begins in the next volume.
