This Comic Is Essential For Any Fan Of Werewolf By Night Or Man-Wolf Or Werewolves In General, But It Has Always Been One Of The Scarcest Issues Of The Entire Long-Running Series. The Title Is One Of The Most Historic, As It Ran For Years In The Golden Age As Marvel Mystery Comics, When Marvel Was Still Going By The Name Timely, And Then A Bit Later, During This Era, They Went By Atlas Comics Instead Of Timely And This Title Changed Names To Marvel Tales And Commenced With Occult Fare, To Capitalize On The Burgeoning Supernatural Market. Eventually, This Iconic Publisher Would Become The Top Producer Of Comic-Books, Marvel Comics, And This Title Would Become Known For Super-Heroes; But During This Halcyon Early Fifties Period, It Was All About The Monsters And Zombies!The Pre-Code Horror Craze Was In Full Swing So It's Got The Ubiquitous Salacious Content Including Gore And/Or Good Girl Art And Graphic Violence And Supernatural Themes. THE GREAT MANEELY HORROR COVERS OF THE EARLY FIFTIES ARE OFTEN OVERLOOKED BY NOVICE COLLECTORS, BUT. PROBABLY WON'T REMAIN AFFORDABLE FOR MUCH LONGER, SO DON'T MISS THIS FLEETING OPPORTUNITY. The Horror And Supernatural Themes Never Go Out Of Style! This hails from a dark, dry, pet-free, non-smoking, climate-controlled environment.
