Scarce Horror Comic: Marvel Tales! LOT OF 1 VINTAGE COMIC BOOK: MARVEL TALES #118 CGC 5.0 With Cream To Off-White Pages From 1953. Sought-After Issue Thanks In Part To The Unusual "Hypo Cover", Depicting A Crazed Fiend Injecting Himself With The Bound Doctor's Serum With The Syringe And Transforming Into A Werewolf.Or perhaps it's Mister Hyde, but it's hairy and fierce and sure looks like the Wolf Man! Don't Take This Chance To Score A Sharp Example Lightly, Or You Could End Up Settling For An Embarrasing Photocopy Replica Or Reprint Volume. Besides The Renowned "World Went Mad" Tale By Gene Colan, It Also Has The Memorable Lurid First Story, "Moon Madness", About Werewolves On The Moon, By Russ Heath, Making It Crucial For Any Wolfman Fan. Plus A Disturbing Plague Story, "Typhoid", About Disease And Death, And A Tale Of Doomed Magic By Dick Briefer, And More. This Comic Is Essential For Any Fan Of Hypodermic Syringe Covers, Or Collector Of Werewolf By Night Or Man-Wolf Or Werewolves In General, But It Has Always Been One Of The Scarcer 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 Shrewdly 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 ATLAS 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. Although it's almost seventy years old, it retains an amazing amount of luster and the eye appeal is impressive. Sorry about the glare and reflections, the photographs don't do this comic justice.
