The Pre-Code Horror Craze Was In Full Swing So It's Got The Ubiquitous Lurid Content Including Gore And Cheesecake And Extreme Violence And Good Girl Art And Other Classic Elements Of The Gritty Fifties Comics.
THIS HAD AN ORIGINAL PRICE OF TEN CENTS. The Horror And Good-Girl And Supernatural Themes Never Go Out Of Style! This hails from a dark, dry, smoke-free, climate-controlled environment.
It has been a treasured part of my personal horror collection since I bought it from the always reliable Howard Harris back twenty-plus years ago; I submitted it for CGC grading recently and was shocked that it didn't grade higher. See the various pictures, which give it a washed-out appearance due to reflections although it looks bold and striking in person.
It retains an amazing amount of luster and the eye appeal from the coveted front cover is stunning for the grade. Many copies have markings or date stamps or long creases, while this glorious example lacks the grease pencil marks and rubber-stamps and other such common detractors. Crucial issue for any devil-cover collector or fan of classic pre-code horror comics.
