OK Jay, here it is...

There are very few PCH books that I have wanted for over 15 years, but never owned. Weird Mysteries #4, 5, Weird Tales of the Future #2, 3, Mister Mystery #12, Weird Chills #2, and this one. I am so happy to finally have found the right copy at the right price of this tough book.





I finally got a chance to spend some time reading this, and I have to say this contains the scariest pre code horror story I have ever seen! If you thought the Hanged man Story I posted before from SSFAW#2 was bad, you have to see "Man With the Broken Neck!" in this one. Holy cripes! Sid Check drew it and it is unrepentantly brutal. A man is wrongly sentenced to death & he vows he won't die, and he'll get the real perpetrators. The tone is beyond description, just terrifying! the panel where he finds the first bad guy & snaps his neck with a phone cord is just messed up. I wish I could scan this, but my copy is so fragile. I may try anyway... Holy cripes....

I bought my copy of this from a guy in cbg.Its like a good minus.25 shipped.He had so much cool pre-code.Passed on the Venus 17 good 35.
Anyway nice pick-up Shiver!

Recent Heritage win. Love this cover, though not as epic as the ones by Frazetta.

I don't know the storyline for the Frankenstein tale but I think that people who like horror comics should consider Ghost Rider. Certainly the Tales of the Ghost Rider series should be considered horror. And some of the stories had horror icons such as Zombies (not actors in suits), Witches and the Frankenstein monster. The lead character was trained by a ghost and always had contact with the "other side". Scaring the bad guys was often a part of the early stories. Kind of like Batman but he used his gun pretty often too.
