Before the Comics Code, they produced many of the meatiest and wildest stories of gore and terror, ghosts and sudden death, strange creatures and madmen and madwomen. Comics fans consider their short but sweet run of horror next in line after EC, and equal to or better than the somewhat pedestrian fare from Atlas. PS Artbooks, 2012...More.
