Bookshop Product information:

Standard Comics did not believe in #1 issues. They were convinced that comics sold better if they appeared to have been around for awhile, and therefore they started all their horror titles with #5. Those titles were The Unseen, Out of the Shadows, and Adventures into Darkness, each lasting about ten issues of fairly well-done E.C. imitations. They also produced a suspense one-shot, Who Is Next? #5, that deserves mention -- it features a town terrorized by a serial killer.

Artists include George Roussos, Alex Toth, Jerry Grandenetti, George Tuska, Art Saaf, Ruben Moreira, Rocco Mastroserio, Ross Andru and Jack Katz.

This first volume features the Standard Comics issues of Out Of The Shadows, Issues 5-9 July 1952 to July 1953.

Slipcase Product information:

St. John was a mid-sized comics publisher with a varied list of titles, and in June 1952 they joined the horror binge with two titles, Strange Terrors and Weird Horrors. Strange Terrors ended after seven issues, to be replaced by Nightmare #3, picking up from the Ziff-Davis series. However -- and I can’t explain this, only report it -- they then combined the title Nightmare with the numbering from Weird Horrors, so that Weird Horrors #9 and Nightmare #3 were followed by Nightmare #10. And after Nightmare #13 the title was changed to Amazing Ghost Stories for its final three issues.

Artists include George Roussos, Alex Toth, Jerry Grandenetti, George Tuska, Art Saaf, Ruben Moreira, Rocco Mastroserio, Ross Andru and Jack Katz.

This first volume features the Standard Comics issues of Out Of The Shadows, Issues 5-9 July 1952 to July 1953.
