Additional Details

Uncovers a rare visual treasury of some of the most important and neglected stories in American literature--the pre-Code horror comics of the 1950s. Censored out of existence by Congress in an infamous televised US Senate subcommittee hearing investigating juvenile delinquency, these rare comic book images are culled from a collection of several hundred, many of which have been rarely seen since they were first issued--now revealed once again in all of their eye-popping inventive outrageousness. Includes over 200 covers and complete stories as they were originally seen, scanned from mint copies in the author's extensive collection. Coupled with commentary and informative text that provides readers with detailed history and complete context for these stories and their creators.
