The Horror! The Horror!



New in store: The Horror! The Horror! Comic Books the Government Didn't Want You to Read!, a fantastic anthology of 1950's pre-Comics Code horror comics. This book includes some of the wildest art from this chapter of comics history, including over 200 covers and complete stories. As the book's back cover promises, borrowing language from an actual U.S. committee report on comic books and juvenile delinquency from 1955-56: "This book contains: Murder! Mayhem! Robbery! Rape! Cannibalism! Carnage! Necrophilia! Sex! Sadism! Masochism! ...and virtually every other form of crime, degeneracy, bestiality, and horror!"

Here's a peek inside!


Weird tales of horror! Terror that stalks by the night!


Space westerns! More strange terrors!


Illustrated "suspenstories"! They dare you to read!

Exclamation!
