A massive collection of never-before-collected pre-Comics Code horror comics of the 1950s. Of the myriad genres comic books ventured into during its golden age, none was as controversial as or came at a greater cost than horror; the public outrage it incited almost destroyed the entire industry. Yet before the watchdog groups and Congress could intercede, horror books were flying off the newsstands. During its peak period (1951a54) over fifty titles appeared each month. Apparently there was something perversely irresistible about these graphic excursions into our dark side, and Four Color Fear collects the finest of these into a single robust volume.He had an idea for a comic book, and wanted to speak to Mac Phillips. I was waiting ... And he said, a#39;I am Jerry Siegel, the creator of Superman, and this impertinent receptionist wona#39;t send me in as soon as I a a#39;Fred says, a#39;I know who you are.
