Description
"Fantagraphics is embarking on a project to reprint Marvel Comics' 1950s genre titles under its new Atlas series with the first eight issues of the pre-Code horror series Adventures Into Terror. The Fantagraphics Atlas Comics Library is the first attempt to publish a carefully curated line of Atlas titles. Our first volume, Adventures Into Terror, includes a treasure trove of stories drawn by many of the most stylistically accomplished artists of the Golden Age including George Tuska, Carl Burgos, Mike Sekowsky, Joe Maneely, and Joe Sinnott. Highlights include Russ Heath's two-part story "The Brain" and "Return of the Brain"; Basil Wolverton's classic "Where Monsters Dwell"; Gene Colan's moody "House of Horror"; and Don Rico's wild layouts are on display "The Torture Room." The stories are written firmly in the tradition of the pulpy, perverse, borderline deranged style that brought Fredric Wertham, the United States Senate Sub-Committee, and public opinion down like a sledgehammer on comics in the early '50s. Published as facsimile editions in full color and with an introduction by series editor Michael J. Vassallo"--,adapted from Amazon.com and back cover.
