Roy Thomas presents the original muck monster in three volumes--26 stories in this one alone! With art from Carmine Infantino, Leonard Starr, and others, more horror fun from the plant creature that spawned Swamp Thing, Man Thing and so many other later monsters.
From the back pages of Airboy Comics, the Heap stars in stories including "The Mole People," "The Book of the Dead," "The Pirates of the Nile," and "The Ugly Murders." Pre-code horror starring the silent but deadly muck monster.
Includes a cool all-new infinity cover by Frank Brunner and an extensive and informative introduction by Roy Thomas, plus an intimate piece by artist and editor Herb Rogoff, who worked for publisher Hillman throughout The Heap's tenure. Herb talks about famed editor Ed Cronin and fellow artist Ernest Schroeder, who drew nearly half of the stories in this volume. Other contributors include Mike Roy, John Belfi, and Paul Reinman. Featuring stories from Airboy Comics June 1948 to November 1950.
