- Full Description
Seven-page Introduction by Heidi MacDonald (Comicsbeat, Publisher's Weekly GN editor). Guilty pleasures abound in this cult hit! Read these lurid, sleaze comics: "Fast Girl," "They Called Me Tramp!," "My Kisses Brought Death," "It's Like Love Pussycat," "Siren of the Tropics," "My Love Was Auctioned Off!," and many more. Includes the bizarro tale that you're sure to relate to: "Beauty Is A Curse!" Art by Harry Anderson, Tom Gill, Mort Leav, John Forte, John Rosenberger, Fred Guardineer et al.
The stand-out story from an art perspective is "My Kisses Brought Death" by the unequaled Harry Anderson, whose cover and art for Stan Lee's Atlas titles are among the most collectible from the 1950s. And from Bill Ward we get a classic, "Siren of the Tropics," drawn in the same style as his much-admired Torchy stories. There's also work from the Iger Shop, a nice piece by the under-appreciated Mort Leav, several stories by ACG stalwart John Rosenberger, etc.
Yoe does a fine job of finding the strangest and most bizarre stories from 1950s and early 1960s for these collections. Here you get the cream-of-the-crop, stand-out stories that are just a lot of fun. Includes seven fun covers also, including the Bill Ward Heart Throbs shown here.
