SYNOPSIS

They may have been Forbidden to some—particularly when the Wertham Seduction of the Innocent book hit the newsstands—but to kids the length and breadth of the United States (and a select few in the UK), Richard Hughes and his tremblin’ team of terrific tormenters were where it was at. Big time. And now, a half-century since the first issue appeared, ACG’s wonderful Forbidden Worlds are accessible once more . . . and this time in state-of-the-art hardcover volumes containing five to seven issues apiece. This is going to be one hell of a journey: come make it with us as we travel together through some of the most memorable comicbooks of all time.

Tales exploring the supernatural featuring Issues 6-10 from May/June 1952 to October 1952 of the ACG classic Forbidden Worlds. Featuring an essay by Mark Chadbourn, this first volume has been meticulously compiled from the original source material and painstakingly digitally restored.
